A Chip Butty is a sandwich made of chips (French fries).


  • Chips from a chip shop or homemade
  • Sliced white bread, or pita bread for kebab-shop style
  • Butter
  • Ketchup or a brown sauce (optional)


  1. Make sure the chips are not too greasy and have been well drained.
  2. Take two slices of bread (the heel works best) and butter both on one side, then apply ketchup and spread evenly over the bread.
  3. Add chips in a manner akin to herringbone floor tiling, making sure to minimise any gaps. You can add multiple layers.
  4. Put both slices of bread together, then put the assembled sandwich on a flat surface and slap it hard several times with with an open hand to crush the filling. Eat immediately!
