For Your Dining Enjoyment! 

You may recall the other day when I mentioned that the tall guy was going to make a potato chip sandwich.  Or you may not.  Anyway, someone asked me if that was a real thing.  Frankly, I had never heard of it either, but when you're dealing with the tall guy, there's lots of things he does that I've never heard of.  

I asked him for the recipe on how to make a potato chip sandwich.  I'm surprised he didn't include it in our cook book, but he didn't.  He said it was his very own special family recipe.  Well, I think the special part is right.  He said that special means something, well, special in the south, although he said he never had an aunt who said "Well, isn't that special" like you see on the teevees sometimes when they are making fun of people who live in the south.  I told him he has a tendency to digress when he tells long stories.  He told me he agrees.

So, here's The Tall Guy Very Special Recipe for Potato Chip Sandwiches:

1.  Take two pieces of white bread.  It has to be Sunbeam or it doesn't count.  He said that his family called white bread 'light bread' when he was growing up.  I told him he was digressing again.

Take two pieces of Sunbeam white bread.

2.  Put a bunch of wavy potato chips on top of one of the pieces of bread.  He said it had to be wavy, like Ruffles or Wavy Lays.  He always used Ruffles growing up as Wavy Lays had not stole the idea from Ruffles yet.

3.  Put the other piece of white bread on top of the potato chips, like you are making a sandwich.  

Which you are.

Here is the most important part:

4.  Now you have to smush the two pieces of bread together with your hand.  That way all the potato chips get stuck in the bread and don't fall out when you are eating the sandwich.

And there you have it.  

Oh, and if you're on a diet, you can take one piece of bread and fold it over to make half a sandwich.

The things I learn about the tall guy everyday!!         


  1. Jack, my mother used to put crushed potato chips on her tuna noodle cassarole that we HAD to eat on Friday nights. It was gross. I hope you get some potato chips though.

  2. I will not try this because it sounds like one of those things that doesn't sound particularly good, but after you have one, you find yourself eating six at a time. I'm just going to take your word for it.

  3. Sandwiches and chips are heaven on earth!

  4. Dear Jack,

    Thank you for the recipe! It sounds pretty good, but I tried it with just one plain flat potato chip on 1/4 piece of Sunbeam bread.... Uh - I guess the wavy chips must be the secret!!! I will buy the wavy ones and give it another try :-)

    (Wonder how it would be with barbeque flavored wavy chips.....) LOL

    Your friend,

    PS - Did the tall guy share his sandwich with you???

  5. How smart is your dad JAck?? Does he give you a bite of that sandwich??

  8. Morning Handsome...
    Isn't that special!! OMDs Jack mom is Southern through and through but she says she has never had a potato chip sandwich; however, she is willing to try one. Mom likes butter sandwiches. Light bread oh yes that was way back when there was only one kind of bread. One time I heard my Dad say his mom used to eat turnip salad sandwiches.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  9. Where's the beef??? My Lady eats this as well, but you MUST toss a piece of Oscar Mayer Bologna between those two pieces of bread!
    ... and they say our food looks and smells bad? BOL!

  10. Hmmm...I have never had Sunbeam bread before. I usually just buy Ezekiel sprouted bread and trust me - it's only good for regular toast or french toast.

    I certainly hope that since you helped keep the TG on track with his potato chip sandwich recipe that he let you share in the eating of it. It's only fair. If not, try tripping him next time he has that sandwich in his hand and then run and eat it as fast as you can.

  11. Having grown up with parents from Alabama, I know all about Sunbm bread! Love it! And it was light bread at our house too! Have you had fried bologna sandwiches? I'm su you both would love them :)

  12. Mom said she had there before and they are very good!
