Recipe from The Encyclopedia of Sandwiches by Susan Russo (Quirk Books, 2011)Everybody's best buddy
Whether or not you appreciate traditional British cuisine, it's hard not to like the tasty chip butty, also known as chip sandwiches across Britain, breadcakes in Sheffield, piece-n-chips in Scotland, or French fry sandwiches elsewhere. Butty is a Welsh term for "sandwich" and slang for "friend" or "buddy." It's not surprising that this is one of the most beloved sandwiches in the United Kingdom, especially in the north. After a long night out on the town, a Chip Butty might just be your best friend, too.
This working-class, vegetarian-friendly sandwich consists simply of bread, butter, and fries that melt the butter; condiments such as ketchup, malt vinegar, brown gravy, and cheese sauce are all acceptable and encouraged. Just not all at the same time.
Liberally butter both slices of bread. Fill with French fries. If you'd like, season with salt and pepper. Eat it quickly, while it's hot! Makes 1
- A few tablespoons butter
- 2 slices white bread
- 3/4 to 1 cup hot French fries
