I was attending a function, and ate a small open face sandwich that turned
out to have as a topping potato salad.  It really tasted good.I then thought
about making a potato salad regular sandwich. Does  such a sandwich sound
strange? I will make it without telling my wife what is in it, and get her
reaction. Any suggestions other than the normal type things in potato salad.

Thanks

Tom

Just say that it's an egg salad sandwich with potatoes.

Here are things you could add to potato salad as a sandwich filling:

Bacon
Peas and curry powder
Shrimp and dill

Next time you're going to use your wife as a guinea pig, though, it 
shouldn't be for something as mundane as a potato salad sandwich. Make 
sweet-and-sour tripe, see how she likes it, and then tell her what it is. 
Cricketburgers and sweetbreads are also great "surprise!" foods.

So tell us, Bob, how many times have you been married?  And how much do
you pay each month for security to keep your ex-wives from killing you?

Married? I've *never* been married.

Gee, I wonder what the problem is... :-)

Tasty - but none the less a little strange.  For the most part sandwiches 
are a pretty good balance or carbohydrates (Bread) Fat, (Butter or Mayo) and 
some protein (meat, cheese, eggs peanut butter etc.) A potato salad sandwich 
is off balance.  But, now having said that if you like it and it tastes good 
to you - go for it.

I've put potato salad into barbecued-pork sandwiches, and into Dagwood-style
corned beef (or pastrami) sandwiches.  It didn't seem weird at the time, and
the sandwiches were still fairly well balanced.

I'm guessing you've not come across the famous British chip buttie.

The lowly potato has an undeserved bad reputation as a carb.  They
certainly aren't a low carb food, but there's a lot more there besides
carbs.  In proportion to the RDA for calories, the potato has the RDA for
protein, i.e. if you get 10% of your daily calories from potatoes, you'll
also get 10% of your RDA for protein.

Nice.
I always use small new potatoes (skin on but scrubbed), boil them whole (or 
halve if need be) and add the additions once cooled.
I'll have to try the mashed variety sometime.
