I must confess that I’ve never understood the Brit obsession with “chip butties” (a.k.a. “chip baps”), which are simply whitebread-and-butter sandwiches with french fries inside them. (A “bap” is a sandwich, either sliced bread or a bread roll — don’t ask, I don’t get it either.)
There’s no reason why you couldn’t put fries into a sandwich, I guess, although I’ve always considered fries to be an accompaniment to a sandwich rather than its filling. Put it down to Weird Shit That Brits Do.
However, there’s been this development: the 1,000-calorie deep-fried chip butty, and apparently the Brits can’t get enough of it. (No pics because… yikes.)
Even better, the deep-fried chip butty can be served with a side order of… fries.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all… although I have to tell you that I wouldn’t mind trying one, just out of academic interest.
Postscript: In Scotland you can get deep-fried Mars Bars, but that’s just the Scots being Scottish. And they taste just about as you’d think they’d taste: bloody awful.
