Make a Potato Chip Sandwich

Potato chips, also known as crisps or potato wafers, are great eaten right out of the bag. But you might not yet have discovered the snack delight that is the potato chip sandwich, a simple but really tasty filler for the hungry-in-a-hurry. Despite its appearance, this sandwich is absolutely delicious, and you can even add some ketchup for a special treat.


Preparation time is 10 minutes.

  • Potato chips, plain or flavored
  • Ketchup
  • 2 slices of bread
  • Optional toppings/flavorings (butter, mayo, malt vinegar, etc.)


Preparing the Bread

  1. Put two pieces of bread side by side. Put the slices on a plate or onto a clean countertop.
  2. Spread a little butter evenly on both pieces of bread. Or, if you prefer, use ketchup (tomato sauce) instead.

Adding the Potato Chips

  1. Put the potato chips on top of one piece of bread. Plain potato chips are ideal, but you can use any favorite flavor.
    • You can enhance your potato chip sandwich by adding regular sandwich fixings. Try such additions as: ham, turkey, luncheon meat or vegetables like lettuce and tomato.
  2. Put the other piece of bread on top of the potato chip layer. Press down a bit to crush the crisps.
  3. Cut the sandwich in half. Keep one hand on top of the sandwich while you use the other hand to hold the knife and cut. It may be best to use a less sharp knife, like a butter knife.
  4. Enjoy with a cold can of soda or any other preferred beverage.


  • It doesn't really matter what type of bread you use, but many people prefer these made with plain white sandwich slices.
  • Fruit could be a good option to choose as a side to have with your sandwich.
  • Be careful when eating this, Potato chips can cut your mouth when eating them in a sandwich.
  • Substitute mayonnaise (regular or vegan) for the ketchup, or use a dash of malt vinegar or other tangy flavoring such as sprinkle of Chaat Masala, if desired
  • The potato chips give that extra "crunch" to an ordinary sandwich.
