What is a Chip Butty Sandwich?
"A chip sandwich, chip butty, (in British English) or french fry sandwich (in North American English) is a sandwich made with bread or bread roll (usually white and buttered) and chips (french fries), often with some sort of sauce such as tomato sauce (i.e. ketchup) or brown sauce.  It was originally considered a working-class meal, served in pubs. The chip butty is a vegetarian-friendly, albeit junkfood, dish and has recently made a comeback. It is more common in the north of England."

"A football chant (sung to "Annie's Song" by John Denver) called "The Greasy Chip Butty Song" is popular with the supporters of Sheffield United Football Club."

Variants include chip bap or barm, using a floury bap or barm cake instead of white sliced.
Barm cake:  is type of bread roll, similar to an English muffin, with flour on top. It has a characteristically strong flavour that comes from the traditional barm leaven made from a natural leaven with the addition of hops. However, the Barm Cake is more likely made from commercial yeast these days."

The original barm cake is found in areas of North West England. In wider northern England, a similar bread roll would be known instead as a "breadbun", "breadcake", "bap" or even (in the enlarged form of Tyneside) a "stotty".

Chips are a popular filling, sold in most fish and chip shops in the north west of England often called simply a 'chip barm'.


  1. Make sure you get your chips from a reputable chippy, and make sure they're not too greasy and have been well drained.
  2. Take two slices of batch loaf (the heel works best) and butter both on one side, then apply ketchup and spread evenly over the bread.
  3. Next 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 and eat immediately.

Fun Food Fact: "During the Middle Ages, thick slabs of coarse and usually stale bread, called "trenchers", were used as plates. After a meal, the food-soaked trencher was fed to a dog or to beggars, or eaten by the diner."
