      Keep the vine ripened tomato, swap the mayo for sharp cheddar...MMM! Good stuff!

        I remember the day in second grade when I thought about putting my side of chips into my sandwich. Salt and vinegar chips in a tuna melt have been a guilty pleasure ever since.

          Oh, I like them crushed cold on an excellent cold tuna salad sandwich - or if I can get really, really good bologna, with sharp mustard and ruffled chips.

            I will second chips on a tuna salad sandwich. I would take them to school back in the 50's. The chips had to be seperate until ready to eat or they would get soggy.

            Wow! I used to do that when I was a kid. Even worse, I would smush potato chips into chocolate ice cream. Only chocolate--no other flavor ice cream. funny

              I think I would like that. I don't have much use for chocolate ice cream, as it's not chocolate-y enough for me. But that particular crunch and salt might be just what would make it edible. Plain chips only, though.

                Oh. Absolutely plain chips. No flavored ones will do--it would take away from the chocolate and salt. Wise potato Chips. Wise.

                I put chips on every sandwich I eat and have since I was a small child. I prefer potato chips, but if I don't have them fritos or tortilla chips work.

                  ditto. if i have chips while having a sandwich (the twain does not always meet) - any kind of sandwich, any kind of chips - the chips go in the sandwich. and like the others, been doing it since i was a kid - aka, forever.

                    I remember taking a pb sandwich and bag of chips to school, assembly at the last minute is key. If you put those chips on in the morning they will just be soggy by lunchtime. Haven't done that in over 25 years!

                        Potato chips on a pulled pork sandwich. Better with a "slider" sized sandwich to manage/mitigate the inevitability of soggification during eating. Oof, so good.

                          Potato chips *always* go on a burger. As well as more alongside. :-) And sometimes potato chips on a tuna fish sandwich.

                            Top sandwich honors go to tuna fish, mayo, sweet pickle relish, and Ruffles potato chips on toasted Dutch crunch bread. One of my many guilty pleasures!

                                Guess the name "Dutch crunch" is regional-I live in San Francisco-but also called Tiger Bread elsewhere. It really is a great bread for sandwiches. I hope the links work.

                                Foodseek. You just caused today's Google search for Dutch Crunch Bread. Now I'm going to have to make it. I like sliced dill pickles on top of my Munchos (ONLY MUNCHOS!) so I guess they would be good on a sandwich. This post is fun.

                                        I don't keep white bread or bologna in the house for that reason.

                                            This was my fav sandwich 40 yrs ago and I eat it from time to time. I think I will hit the deli for some bologna this weekend. Unfortunately we don't get Wonder Bread down here, so I will have to forgo the wonderful "sqiushy" part that Wonder Bread provides There is nothing like that bread if you just want a white bread sandwich. My sis travels alot and uses my house as a home base sometimes. I cannot tell you how excited I get when she arrives with homemade scrapple and Wonder Bread !

                                                I have to have potato chips on my tuna sandwiches- the crunchier the better. Also, sometimes I like to make a chicken sandwich with avocado, tomato and mayo, then add tortilla chips or fritos.

                                                  I do this. It gives saltiness and crunch. Usually when someone brings home sandwiches from Jason's Deli or Schlotzky's, I find them a bit bland so I add some hot sauce and chips. Just makes the sandwich yummier.

                                                    I started doing that when I was about 8, still do on occasion and depending on the sandwich. after years of suffering the rolled-eyes of friends and family, I was vindicated when Michel Richard at his DC restaurant Central put house-made potato tuiles on his $17+ burgers.

                                                    for me they need to be adjacent to mayo.

                                                      I've always been a huge fan of chips on the tuna salad sandwich. I had a roommate in college who put butter braid pretzels on everything...we called them "Lincoln log" sandwiches, as he would strategically lay them out like he was building a cabin.

                                                      A friend of mine has two boys who love "Chippy dippies"...potato chips dipped in Superman ice cream.

                                                          Pringles or cheetos (preferably crunch) on peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich on white bread. Pringles or regular chips on cheap bologna with cheat yellow mustard on squishy cheap white bread.

                                                            Fritos on ham and cheese sandwiches. Haven't done it in a long time, though... now I've got a craving! I liked the thickness and saltiness of the Fritos. Never tried potato chips, though.

One of his staples was Lebanon bologna (thin), yellow mustard, and local potato chips on potato bread. It was actually pretty good. All the ingredients are available in central NJ. We have acess to 'Setzer's Lebanon ' (sweet) and the bread is all over the area. That was long ago, but the chips may have been made by Hanover. Damn, I can taste it now!!!

I think that it was chicken salad on white bread cut in halves or quarters and then coated in some sort of crushed potato chip breading and then fried. At the time I hated sandwiches but I still remember how good this was. I think that she got the recipe from the local paper. It was the only time she ever made it. Sometimes I think that it was a dream. I will have to check out the 1,420,000 Google results to see if I can find this long lost recipe.

I loved it SO much!! Then I got older and started experimenting with it a little bit more.. and the best chip sandwich I ever ate was a tuna and spicy nacho dorito chip sandwich! It's good with cool ranch doritos too!! lol

A tuna sandwich w/o chips on it just isn't a tuna sandwich! Is it the "crunch" we like or the salt, or both? I also just discovered how good those Frenches Fried Onions are on a sandwich!!!!!!

A Hefty amount. It was a weird chip banh mi. And it was delicious.

One day, for no apparent reason, I decided to put a potato chip on the grill as I waited for the meat to finish. It soon became a secret passion of mine, grilled potato chips.

                                                                                                              I also had an odd obsession with salted raw potatoes from a young age.

                                                                                                              I haven't tried either in over 20 years but I will soon.

Maybe a slice of pepper jack on the sandwich and some pimento stuffed olives in the salad...or if your a fan of garlic...I buy the jar the spanished olive stuffed with a whole clove...mince it fine can sprinkle a little garlic and olive on the sandwich and the salad!

I don't buy potato chips but if they were in front of me and I was working on a sandwich I would totally hook them up

It's been years, though, so definitely overdue. That crunch, along with a squish of mayo and a bit of dribbled tomato, is what summer is all about!

Just make sure you fall off into the soft snow before the toboggan hits those trees. ;-)

It's the norm there. Not the same as potato chips because you don't get the crunch, but still good, nonetheless!

It's clear that Canadians do this too and it's just me who had no idea about this guilty pleasure. Wow, I am definitely not a sheltered person but regarding this culinary experience I've been living under a rock!

I offered hubby a bite, and he told me he could think of nothing he'd rather eat less. He took a bite anyway.
                                                                                                                                                              Then said - he *could* think of something he'd rather eat less.

It's certainly more salami than bologna like in flavor. Maybe the fermenting?

I got ahold of some Lebanon bologna the other day and ate it on Pumpernickel, with a schmear of garlic cream cheese w/ veg. And then I called my cardiologist, which is another story. :) Seriously, it was THAT good.

It becomes even more Tabula -Rasa like at 8 a.m., when the wholesalers, food truck people, private cooks etc. make their pilgrimages - nice and quiet, without that line of people and minus the chaos - but by going in early, I realize I miss out on things like the chance to see what kind of ice cream Wavy Gravy eats. :)

I can't eat a sandwich any other way! My husband thinks I'm nuts, but he doesn't know what he is missing! I like any type of ridged potato chip. Thick, but not too thick. I love the crunch!

It was wondrous!! Oh, and mustard on the wheat bread.

They were good old Granny Goose regular chips. And come to think of it, they gave just enough crunchewy themselves - I have to wonder if the kettle chips wouldn't be almost TOO hard a chew, you know? Interfering with the delicacy of the, ahem, not particularly-high-quality bread, and the melty plasticky cheese? I LOVE things like this now and again. :) Don't tell.

When I was little and we'd go for fast food, I would always take a gulp of my ice cream shake while chomping on the fries. Speaking of salt/sweet, I also make tuna salad sammies with (horrors) Miracle Whip, which is sweeter than mayo, and smush chips in that.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Reason I found this thread was curiosity about what chips people pair with what...never realizing there were so many people who smush them in sandwiches like me! Today I decided on sour cream and chive chips with pulled pork. OH YEAH.

I don't do it in front of anyone because of past experiences. Now, I can come out of the "kitchen closet" and proudly stack my chips, just right, then smash the sandwich together for that first wonderful crunchy bite!

Tuna, Bologna (cut just the right thickness at the deli) and deli cut cheese, Salami and cheese....Heck I've been known to eat chips on a lowly cheese with mayo sandwich when I was out of luncheon meat.

What keeps me coming back is their "BBQ" sauce which is served on the side for dipping. It's nothing at all like a ketchup based sauce and is totally unique. So, why the heck am I telling you this? Well, for me, the perfect leftover turkey sandwich is open-faced w the Swiss Chalet BBQ sauce (now sold in supermarkets in cans or powdered) oozing over top! btw, for mr bc it's nothing but the gravy on his sandwich.

Mrs Porker and I always try hot dogs when travelling around (Teds in Buffalo, Pappaya Dog in NY, etc). Places which locals insist is the best in the world, but we never get it - either the bun is right outta the bag, or the weiner griddled too much, or whatever. I came to assume that "the best in the world" is likely what you grew up with - making it a regional thing.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Then you throw a monkey wrench in my theory!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I'd be happy to hear about your Chalet experience. Not only is the gravy fantastic, but their chicken is, to me, the gold standard. They cook with maple charcoal which really flavors the bird (Swiss Chalet used to use charcoal, but switched out to gas years ago). Their fries are made from fresh (not frozen) and are very good as well. I get the 1/4 leg with fries and an extra gravy - one gravy for the chicken, another for the fries and use the bun to sop up anything left on the plate.

Many times we think of high steel workers as knuckle dragging, ruff and gruff, uncouths. Like any slice of population, this just isn't so.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          I asked him if he did this all the time - no, only with bologna sandwiches he replies.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          "Howsabout dill pickle chips on a smoked meat sandwich?" I venture.

Look for the Southwest Burger - a regular burger with white cheddar cheese, bbq sauce and "tortilla strips." On the burger photo the tortilla strips look like a pile of Fritos to me. Heck, I'd try it.

I think, though, that being such a flavor-bomb and all, I'd choose just plain 'ol fried fish w/ all the above,and save them crawdaddies for gumbo file. :)
