I'd try anything on that new list except the french fry sandwich.
"England: Chip Butty
There’s no better testament to the general blandness of English food than this sandwich: a bunch of french fries between two pieces of bread. Bravo, guys."

Ha...well so much for misrepresentation. A true Brit chip butty would be with thicker chips, not slender french fries! They melt so much better into the butter. Don't knock it till you've tried it I say!

It's called a chip butty not a french fry sandwich for a reason!

However, you are on a low carb diet anyway I believe Kayelle, yes?

Shame we didn't get our other sandwich represented here (as in the OP), namely a roast pork roll. Nothing bland about that whatsoever.

Either way it's a fried potato sandwich.

Yep, I'm on low carbs right now but I sure remember what they taste like, and it wouldn't kill me to eat a sandwich. Even if I was still eating carbs, I'd never eat a potato sandwich unless I had no choice.

My Scottish ex-dh ate chip butties, crisp butties (potato chips) and never used ketchup on them, just butter.

I've been known to eat a cold, boiled potato sandwich with mayo or bacon fat, and maybe some chives, no butter. Especially good open-faced, on heavy, Danish rye bread.

I would give the chip butty a try.

I'm curious about how the chip butty originated, the amount of carbs make me think it came out of hard times.

Reminds me of the American cold baked bean sandwiches on white bread with a little raw onion and ketchup. My grandmother got us hooked on those when we were kids.

Ha true...more often a roll though!

The picture in the first link (in my OP) is what it most usually looks like.

Yes that's right...the ketchup is a bit of an add-on!

Not sure I fancy gravy in a sandwich.

Don't knock it till you've tried it! It's incredibly good Of course, you'll need a knife and fork to eat it
