Classic Irish Crisp Sandwich for St. Patrick’s Day! [RECIPE]
Good Afternoon Friends!
I bit into this sandwich and chewed slowly. My first thought was, “someone was definitely drunk when they invented this”. My second thought was, “holy s*** this actually doesn’t taste bad!”. My brain was trying to sort out the flavors as I finally swallowed my first bite. But let me rewind. There are some things that haven’t made it “across the pond” yet, here to America. Crisp sandwiches is one of those. Crisps (or potato chips as we Americans call them) comes in a variety of flavors. For the purpose of this sandwich I turned to fellow blogger, The Daily Spud, for expert advice. They used Tayto Cheese n’ Onion for their crisp of choice. Given that we don’t have Tayto as a brand on the West Coast, I chose to use Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream potato chips.
Now for the sandwich. The instructions were very straightforward, (and why I imagined a drunk person creating this recipe). Grab bread. Slather generously with butter on both halves. Place potato crisps down. Put sandwich together and eat. Now, I love potato chips and I love buttered toast. But NEVER did I think that this combination would work… but it does! My daughter, meanwhile, was absolutely loving the idea of a potato chip sandwich. “Oh my gosh… I’m SO moving to Ireland!” she said swooning through a mouthful of sandwich.
I don’t know when we’ll be able to visit The Emerald Isle, but I do know that these fun crisp sandwiches made our day for a fun St. Paddy’s lunch. 🙂 I hope you enjoy them too! Stay tuned for more recipes, have a beautiful afternoon, and as always, keep on cooking! ❤
