We’ve all had some fun in the past as we marveled at the various eclectic (ahem) dishes enjoyed by Brits (faggots, toad-in-the-hole, black pudding etc.).
Among these was the “chip butty”:
…which of course is just potato in a sandwich — carbohydrates squared, so to speak.
So if we carry the concept one step further, we get the “crisp sandwich”:
(made all the more confusing because of the chips/fries/crisps nomenclatures that divide us).
Actually, the latter sandwich is not too bad, simply because unlike here in Murka, Brit “crisps” are sold in a dizzying array of flavors — prawn, chicken, lamb, beef and so on — along with the various sub-groups (chicken tikka, steak, hamburger, sausage, lamb & mint sauce, etc.) as well as the staples such as cheese & onion and salt & vinegar.
Sometimes the crisp sandwich is not a stand-alone — you can add your usual sandwich fillings like cheese, salami and so on — with the crisps added for both flavor and crunch*.
Needless to say, this being Britishland, a whole bunch of !SCIENTISTS! decided to explore the latter to see which made the best option. And here are the results:
Now you know.
*By the way: the combination of bread, butter, BBQ brisket and jalapeno-flavored “chips” is a pretty tasty dish.
