Guilty Pleasures No2 - The Crisp Sandwich

Crisp Sandwich
Sometimes I have an urge for a crisp sandwich. It's not something I eat often, due to its blatant disregard for the range of food groups (carbohydrate and a bit of fat anyone?), but it's a sandwich with which I associate strong memories from my youth. I'd occassionally tuck into one on the sofa after school whilst engrossed in an episode of Byker Grove or Mysterious Cities of Gold in order tide me over for an hour before my dinner at about 6pm.
The ingredients
The textural contrast of pappy white bread, super crunchy crisps and the smoothness of butter is fantastic. Similarly the simplicity of flavour is a welcome change to the overly fancy combinations e.g. smoked chicken, tomato and pesto which we're so used to nowadays. I normally just go for straight down the line ready salted crisps but on this occassion I only had salt and vinegar in the cupboard so they had to suffice.

I don't think we'll be seeing the crisp sandwich in gourmet deli's up and down the country anytime soon but I was interested to see that Asda launched a prepacked crisp sandwich briefly last year. For some reason I can't see it being a big seller..
