Last night I was feeling a little peckish so had a guilty pleasure, the crisp sandwich.
Now some people might find this minging but it is far from it. The choice of bread and crisp is very important when making a crisp sandwich, I tend to go for Warburton’s White Bread and Golden Wonder ready salted crisps, bacon can work and even salt and vinegar but never prawn or beef flavours, they just don’t work at all for me. I know someone who puts cucumber on theirs, but that is going too far and I have heard of someone putting grated cheese on theirs and tomato sauce.
There is a guy in Yorkshire who has even opened a crisp sandwich shop!
Obviously the man is a legend and he does all crisps. Now I would visit his shop if I lived in Yorkshire but I don’t, I live in Dundee and have never even had a deep fried Mars bar that Dundee was famous for a wee while ago. However, when having a week look at his shop he does a hula hoop sandwich, that just can’t work. Surely it has to be ordinary, state of the art, traditional crisps, none of this wotsits or quavers nonsense.
I may not have another crisp sandwich anytime soon but I will definitely have it with a beer the next time.
