The Cheapest Sandwich Ever (Chopped Cheese) | But Cheaper

A bodega Chopped Cheese can be made homemade for even cheaper than you might have imagined. Homemade hero rolls are at the heart of this, but not before paying homage and respect to the humble sandwich. Before you get all nervous we brought a guest to teach us the good ol’ fashioned New York way.

  • AMERICAN CHEESE!. 50% American* and 50% cheese

    Warning: American* in this context stands for cheap artificial stuff in order to replace cheese for higher margins. Keep away from your children, highly entflammbarere. Don’t feed to your dog cause this stuff is toxic af. It really needs only 50% cheese in order to be called „American cheese“ and you really fall for it XDD

  • Chopped cheese is the king of Bodega sandwiches in nyc. Used to be baconegg&cheese but a lot of delis are Muslim owned these days so no proper bacon.

  • Nah nah, as a New Yorker the grill gotta be looking suspicious and the outside of the store has to look dirty and decrepit for the BEST sandwiches.

  • Talking food I would assume the worst nightmare for a high end bistro would be a Jack in the Box around the corner. I don't know too many that can compete with a $2 Jumbo Jack at any hour of the day.
