Urooj’s Potato Sticks Sandwich
This week on Weird Combinations, we’re giving you an insight into Urooj’s self-assembled lunchbox from the 2nd to the 5th grade. Be warned, it is freakishly weird. And – she contests – freakishly awesome.
Bread – 2 Slices
Mayonnaise – User’s discretion
Potato Sticks – 1 Pack (crushed)
Super Crisps – 1 Pack
Okay so if you haven’t already stopped reading this, hear me out. Calling the list above a recipe may be a bit of a stretch. It may sound unappetizing and all-out absurd. But think about this: crisps are a version of fries, right? And most of you would pay a gross amount of money for french fries with a mayo-based dip. So what’s the harm in reversing it?
This sandwich started off in an attempt to make the best out of a poorly prepared mid-week lunch. Eventually, it became a go-to meal. And for all the nay-sayers: Crisps and mayo or bread and crisps work. Why not put them all together?
Here’s what you do
Cut the edges off two slices of bread (because why won’t you?). Put a light layer of mayo on a side of each slice. Next, crush the Potato Sticks to a half-powdered consistency. To do this, simply open the packet to let the air out, and then crush its contents with your fingers. Once you’re done, layer them on one side of the bread. Put the Super Crisps over them and cover with the second slice of bread. Press them together really well, and hear that perfect, instant crunch. Your sandwich is ready.
Why you need to try it
It’s smart, it’s affordable, and it’s a new way of looking at those same old, boring snacks. Just give it a go once; there’s not much to lose. Broaden your horizons, people!
