  1. I read this in a book called "White Trash Cooking."

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

      1. 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.

            I love tuna melts with salt and vinegar chips!!! I ate this everyday for months about 20 years ago!!Thanks for the reminder!

          3. 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.

                      Haven't eaten them in years, used to love them!

                        I'm in the Boston area and my favorite chips now are Utz chips. Really tasty!

                  Ben and Jerry's has an Ice cream with potato chips in it. It is called Late Night Snack.

                  1. re: PotatoHouse

                    How do they keep the potato chips from getting soggy? For me, that would be a real turn-off!

                    1. re: Caroline1

                      They are chocolate covered balls and they are soggy city

                      1. re: suzigirl

                        Shame on Ben... AND Jerry! Soggy is a sin!

              2. 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.
