    1. One slice thickly buttered bread. Butter must be warm so that it spreads evenly and does not tear the bread.
    2. 4-5 tablespoons sugar heaped in center of bread slice.
    3. Hold slice over open sugar bowl and tilt rotationally to evenly coat butter with maximum amount of sugar.
    4. Dump excess sugar from bread back into sugar bowl. While exercising care not to lose and sugar adhering to the butter.
    5. Eat unfolded for maximum pleasure and sugar drippibility. Especially effective if eaten while walking though the whole house.

    I just made my sugar sandwiches with bread and sugar, Ken, but Jif peanut butter on each slice of bread, with a large wad of softened butter inbetween was my other favorite.

    I wish I could still eat before going to sleep, because I’ll be thinking about butter, sugar and bread all night long now, Ken.

    Downundergirl, being an artistic, gourmet, I have lots of colored sugars, but never heard of ‘Hundreds and Thousands’ sandwiches. Thanks for the international twist!

    I remember adding quik powder and sugar to margin butter and spreding it on homemade bread or tortillas. Back in the tx ranch I grew up in; the gro. store was a good 2hr drive away. When we wanted candy it was either prickly pears, aloe flowers(sometimes). mesquit sap (not sweet but a chewy treat) or experiment with the pantry…

    Anyone here like white bread, mayo, and pineapple? Or banana? Or tomato?

    hey Glenbeck; ever eat bull nettle beans? We used to walk out in the pasture and graze on that and prickley pear apples, and those old sour mustang grapes.

    When I was little, my favorite treat was bread, fresh out of the oven, slathered with butter and covered with brown sugar and cinnamon. Just thinking about it takes me back to my grandmother’s kitchen.

    I used to put the butter and sugar on toast, and add a little cinnamon on top…mmm-mmm! Hadn’t thought of that for years

    We sometimes ate ketchup sandwiches. I rather liked them when they were an option, but I detested them when they were all we had to eat. (Still better than fried onion sandwiches which would make me ill.)

    But not one reference to marshmallow whip sandwiches, with or without PB?

    I like to toast the bread, then butter it, then the sugar. For added taste put on some cinnamon to.

    Another way, lay bread slice on plate, sprinkle sugar liberally on slice, then sprinkle milk on slice and enjoy. I think it was a depression era thing.
