  • Bread Knife & Chopping Board
  • Knife (for butter)


  • 2 medium slices of Soft White Bread
  • 1 packet of Crisps (see notes)
  • Butter, as needed


  • Liberally butter one side of each slice of bread.
  • Top on side with the crisps. Add the other slice on top, gently push down, then slice in half and enjoy.

Quick Demo


a) Bread - Medium slice is perfect. Too thick and the crisps get lost, too thin and you're just eating crisps. Make sure it's soft (stay clear of Sourdough etc).
b) Crisps - Go wild! I'm a Walker's man at heart for a crisp sandwich. Cheese & Onion most popular, but Salt & Vinegar for me. 
c) Additions - Cheese works great, as does ham. But in reality, there's very few savoury sandwiches that aren't enhanced by adding in crisps!
d) Variations - Use Mayo for one slice instead of butter (cardinal sin, but oh well!). Use a roll instead of bread.
