Susans Scribblings: July 2012

A CHIP BUTTY in honour of the London Olympics

A CHIP BUTTY in honour of the London Olympics is what my husband will be enjoying for his dinner tonite!

(You couldn't pay me to eat this but he just loves them)

~ I believe this was first created in Liverpool.

Just in case you are not familiar with this British 'delight' you take 2 pieces (rounds or slices, depending on where you are from) of plain white sandwich bread and butter them quite thickly - not a heartsmart menu item by any means!

You then get chips (french fries) - they can be hot or cold - and pile them on to one piece of bread and on the other slice, you apply red sauce (ketchup or catsup!) or brown sauce (HP sauce) or Mayo (mayonnaise)

Traditionally, it was always red sauce but it has since be adapted to suit the eater.

I've even seen it with Garlic Butter over the chips!

I think there are rules about eating a Chip Butty and they include eating it whole (no cutting in half), elbows must be up and both hands used to hold the butty.

Enjoy whilst watching the London Olympics.  (I'm told a pint of your favourite Bitter [beer] goes well with it - yuck!)

(Please have 911 predialed and ready should this NON Heart Friendly meal not agree with you!!)
