I'm not hungry enough (plus it's kind of late !) to try one now – maybe tomorrow. It does say they are surprisingly good. Course it's possible that 2 slices of bread with a slice of toast as the filling starts off with very low expectations on the part of the consumer.

Is the world famous British cuisine we have heard so much about?

no doubt, invented by same dope smoker on a munchy attack that only had bread in the house..

It isn't an actual sandwich – we call it an "Empty Club Sandwich" – a regular club sandwich, hold all of the fillings!

I'll try it. Probably add one egg, "fried" on cooking spray.

Quoting from the article: "The meal was recreated by a chef at the RSC on Wednesday and offered to people outside their London offices."

It took a chef to recreate this dish?

You can probably replace the word "chef" with "caterer", in truth…

And I always thought that RSC stood for Royal Shakespere Company….

I know some people like frozen toast.

I read this article this morning on the Beeb. Are things really that bad in the U.K. that people have to come up with ridiculous stuff like this? Or is it some kind of an in joke?

I suppose it's a nice alternative to ketchup on crackers.

Normally have them for breakfast with ham and cheese or cheese & baked beans.

Still using the same toasted sandwich maker 15 years after I bought at uni.

Great comfort food!!!

Ah, no this isn't anything as good as a toasted sandwich.

It's a slice of bread, then a slice of cold toast, then a slice of bread. And serve ungarnished to raptuous exclamations of "what the flip is this ? Are you having a giraffe ?".

Definitely going to have to try this. :)
