I used to eat toast sandwiches, but I usually spread marmite on the piece of toast between the untoasted slices because it would taste vaguely like a really cheap pork tenderloin sandwich. Struggle sandwich.

Hmmm… this recipe does sound good, but it could use a couple of garnishes. Say, an entire jar of peanut butter, an entire jar of jam, and a pound of bacon, for starters.

NANTWICH (n.)

A late-night snack, invented by the Earl of Nantwich, which consists of
the dampest thing in the fridge, pressed between two of the driest things in the fridge. The Earl, who lived in a flat in Clapham, invented the nantwich to avoid having to go shopping.

I prefer a “jam sandwich”: two pieces of bread jammed together. (Credit 70s TV show “Good Times.”)
