Before I get into this sandwich, I need to get something off of my chest. I skipped over sandwich #47 last time I made a sandwich and went straight to #48. Oops. :/ Apparently, I forgot how to count! ;) No big deal- I'll do #47 now and then jump to #49. Math lesson #1: learn to count.
Anyhow, the sandwich I'm sharing today was inspired by my cousin Andre. He posted a chips and pretzel sandwich on Instagram last week. Jesse has put chips in his sandwich, as well. I've always grimaced at the sight of chips in his sandwich- though I've been secretly curious to know if the crunch and salty flavor of the chips would make for a better sandwich. Seeing my cousin Andre's sandwich reminded me of Jesse's chip sandwiches and a recipe Joy (from Joy the Baker) shared on her blog here. I decided to go ahead and give this sandwich a shot even though it seemed (honestly, it still seems) weird to me.
I slightly altered Joy's recipe to use what I had on hand. I spread Dijon mustard on multigrain bread. (Clearly, there's too much mustard in the picture. I didn't even use half of what's there).Then I layered turkey, cheddar cheese, pickles, and jalapeño chips on one slice of bread, then topped it with the other slice of bread. Then, I grilled the bread in butter until golden brown.
Though it is good, I prefer my chips on the side. Womp. Womp. But maybe you'll like it (or maybe you already do!). Also, if I were you, I wouldn't add quite so much mustard (and I really like mustard, so that's saying something).
The pressing question is what do you think about potato chips in a sandwich??
