A chip butty is a small portion of chips inside a bread roll – they’re a common quick snack for many in the UK. A cheesy chip butty takes it to a new level of enjoyment!
I had a bread roll to use up and so I thought I’d make this quick chip butty – using oven chips. Although the intended cooking method of oven chips is to put them in the oven, most often I’ll actually microwave oven chips instead.
This time I had a little bit of cheddar cheese I thought I’d use up, so my usual quick chip butty became a cheesy chip butty. And, with a punnet of cherry tomatoes kicking around, I thought I’d add in one of my “five a day” by tossing a few of those into my bowl too.
This cheesy chip butty took under 15 minutes from thinking of it, to eating it – cooking the chips taking most of that time.
- 1 large soft bread roll
- ~150 grams oven chips (choose quantity by eye)
- ~25 grams cheddar cheese
- A splash of tomato ketchup or chilli chutney
How to Make:
- Slice the bread roll open and spread some tomato ketchup, or chilli chutney, on the insides.
- Cook the chips, adding the cheese towards the end so it melts
One bread roll can cost a varying amount, this bread roll is one of Aldi’s so cost about £0.20. The chips are Lidl’s oven chips, probably £0.05 worth (yes 5p worth). The small amount of cheese was pennies too, as were the tomatoes (which I’d have bought as part of a Lidl Special Price item). In total, this quick, easy, tasty and filling snack meal probably cost £0.35 – with the bread roll being the expensive part. To make this cheaper, use two slices of bread instead of a bread roll!
