Burger King Introduces French Fry Sandwich
Burger King has recently introduced a new sandwich in their lineup – the Chip Butty, a patty-less sandwich with french fries, mayo and ketchup wedged in between two buns.
The inspiration behind the new sandwich came from a happy “culinary accident” from one of the chain’s chefs, according to a message Burger King New Zealand posted to its Facebook page earlier this month. With that accident, in came the idea for the Chip Butty and Chip Butty with bacon.
According to cnn.com, the new assortment is only available to New Zealand customers right now for AUD2 (USD1.27), and it’s unclear if it will make its way to other markets in the future.
While this concept is new to Burger King, the patty-less sandwich has been around for years and is commonly found at fish and chip shops across the United Kingdom and Ireland. Ingredients include mayonnaise, ketchup, cheese, hot sauce and malt vinegar, depending preferences.
