    I'm making a sandwich and don't know whether I should cut it in half or not - I've heard they taste better if you cut them in half but don't know if that's true - also, how should I cut it in half, if I choose to do that at all? Diagonally, horizontally, vertically, or do a wavy line that still creates two sandwiches of equal size and density?

    HELP!

    It's got you - diagonally

    With a pointy end, you can fit more in your mouth at once.

    /OIoi!

    Two diagonal cuts. Top left to bottom right and top right to bottom left. Sandwiches cut like this taste better. Scientists have used computers to demostrate this as FACT.

    Cut it diagonally, or 'party-style' as Mrs Boo says.

    Best sandwich evar!

    Get a square loaf, and take two pieces of bread. On one piece, put a stripe of marmite, a stripe of American mustard and another stripe of marmite, so that each stripe is an equal third.
    On the other slice, repeat, but this time, make it mustard/marmite/mustard.

    Cut up some sweet pickled onions and sprinkle in the sandwich, making sure you get a reasonable amount of vinegar on the bread.

    Enjoy!

    Oh wow! You're saying I should QUARTER the sandwich?!

    Holy Branstons, Batman, I hadn't thought of that!

    Slow day Owen? :)
    If the sandwich has cucumber in it you must cut the crusts off too.

    Don't cut it. Eat around the edges first to get rid of the crust, and then leave the stodgy filling packed middle to eat at the end!

    That sounds like the sort of thing you'd eat and never be able to taste anything again!

    And yet strangely appealing. It's just as well I don't have any pickled onions about.

    Better still, forget the sandwich and get a Chicken & Mushroom Pot Noodle.

    Bleurgh-splat.

    Get some peanut butter. Smooth or crunchy.
    Spread on 2 slices white bread.
    Slice some Red Pepper (in long strips).
    Put red pepper on one slice of peanut-buttered bread, until well over 60% of the surface has red pepper on it.
    Make sandwich. Enjoy.

    Nooo.

    Try it.
    Go easy on the marmite, but the mustard is mild (English would be too much), and combined with the sweet pickled vinegar (it has to be sweet pickled, not regular), you get this tangy sweet and sour thing going on.

    Hmmm I can't see how cutting your sandwich diagonally makes it tastier. You either have to bury your face in the sandwich to take a decent chomp out the middle, or you start at the pointy bits and get a mouthful of crust.

    Rectangles ftw.

    There is no better way to eat a bacon sarnie (or the vegetarian equivalent thereof - some quorn table tennis bat rubber fried and covered in ketchup) than just as a huge doorstep. Anyone caught cutting a bacon sandwich into triangles or smaller portions has to be taken out back and hit around the head with a baguette.

    But what if you only have little hands? All the filling falls out the other end! Also known as massive damage.

    Cmon, crusts are just rubbish.

    Edit: Unless the loaf is less than 3 hours old. In which case, gimmie.

    This is true. Howver, I usually like to cut it in half - but Builder Style (straigh across the middle, no messing)

    But the regular daytime cold-contents-only sandwich - that's a different beast.

    Crusts on or off? Let's hear your views, troops. I love my crusts, but will also admit to enjoying a crust-free sandwich too. It makes for a VERY difficult set of decisions come lunch time.

    That'll be the weed, and the power of suggestion.

    So do I, but not as much as the stodgy middle bit.

    What about Cheese? Is there anything it won't go with? I munched on a chunk of Wensleydale last night and then washed it down with a swig of tea - and it was like nectar rolling down my throat. The two just went so well together for some bizarre reason.

    As does chocolate and cheese. Pickle and cheese. Chilli sauce and cheese. Meat with cheese. Veg with cheese. Fruit with cheese. The girlfriend loves Marmite and cheese. Cheese with curry paste. Tuna and cheese (melted or normal).

    A personal favourite of mine is peanut butter and thick cut cheese in either a normal sandwich or a toastie, using fresh granary bread. Heart attack inducing, artery clogging, creamy, cheesy goodness.

    It's just the best thing ever. Love it with a passion!!
