The superior way in triangles, it is easier to eat and it looks better. In fact that is how the royal family cuts their sandwiches

Diagonally is the definitive best way to cut a sandwich, I will not hear any other opinions, and there’s science to back it up. Surveys and studies show that the people demand a diagonally cut sandwich.

The reasons why people prefer the triangular sandwich halves are a little more speculative, but experts say it probably has to do with surface area and aesthetics.

The diagonal cut is, of course, longer than a straight up and down cut, meaning the available crustless biting surface is greater on each half, giving the illusion that there is less crust, which is always a good thing.

Some chefs argue that the diagonal cut makes the sandwich look bigger, or that it’s harder to spot imperfections on a triangle than on a rectangle, but the aesthetics thing is really something you have to feel in your heart.

a_person is a genius Put one piece of bread, then jelly, then a piece of toast, then peanut butter, then another piece of bread. To cut it, you cut it diagonally into triangles with a sushi knife so the cut is perfectly straight, duh. This idea sparks others to think of you as weird, which is very close to unique in meaning.

Cut it, if so desired, any way you wish. You're making it at home. It wasn't prepared for you at a restuarant and cut diagonallly and served with toothpicks on either side. It's your choice.

I have always promoted the idea that each portion of a cut sandwich should be exactly the same. To do this, I always place the top slice 180 degrees turned from the bottom slice. This maintained uniformity and symmetry so that each and every piece is identical no matter how you half or quarter it. If shared, everyone gets the same balance and proportion of crust and bread. (Harder for kids to complain that their brother got the better half)

Depends on how I feel that day and what kind of sandwich I am making. Grilled cheese is cut diagonally as is peanut butter and jelly. Pimento and cheese in 4 triangles. Ham and cheese, turkey and cheese and BLT I don't cut. I like the crust, by the way.

Sandwiches should be cut on the diagonal, not straight down the middle. Why the Diagonal Cut Is a Superior Cut It gives the illusion of less crust. Also, it's just easier to eat a crustless bite. It's a more intuitive way to eat a sandwich. It just looks better.

There is no best way to cut a sandwich. Some prefer to cut them diagonally and other like them cut straight down the middle. When serving sandwiches as finger foods, they are usually cut diagonally into fourths.
