how do you cut your sandwiches?

I've just been introduced the concept of cutting sandwiches in a RANDOM PATTERN.

not in half or quarters.... nope. Just cut random angles, and end up with about 5-7 pieces of various shapes.

it's changed my life...

I clearly need to get out more

For what purpose would you cut them in a random pattern?

I cut mine in diagonals and end up with 4 triangles... like a normal person.

I cut in half longways if it's something like bacon and sometimes I cut across the other way into 2. If tuna or something that will fall out I cut into triangles or squares.

i'd say "Normal" person would be cut into two rectangles!

kids cut into four squares maybe.

I cut straight across in half, then turn the top piece of bread so there is a crust each side...

God the idea of cutting them at random is making my teeth itch!! But I’m the kind of woman who alphabetises her spice rack, so...

Two triangles. Always.

Regular sandwich is cut straight across the middle (side to side) so I end up with two rectangles.

If I'm feeling fancy, it's diagonally, so have two triangles 😂😂

always horizontal, I hate diagonal butties. Liking this idea of random bits for a change! When I help with friends' kids parties, I sometimes use animal cutters and eat the trimmings

With a knife generally

Two triangles, always unless it's bacon then it's four squares.

No, I don't know why!

00100001 Mon 16-Nov-20 13:48:36

never had animal shape ones.... might try that!

If sliced bread, 4 triangles, obviously, there is no other way.

Breadcake/bap it gets sliced in half.

I might ask...what esle do you cut it with, if you "generally use a knife"? grin

I cut sandwiches in to two triangles. Any other way is wrong grin

Weirdo grin

Sojo88 Mon 16-Nov-20 13:56:14

I'm actually quite intrigued to try the random way now! grin

I like to live on the wild side too OP.

I purposely do it front of DP as he is a rigid diagonal cutter. I like to do it straight down the middle of the sandwich. So like two long strips of rebellion.
