There's definitely something wrong with a square sandwhich cut straight across, but if your bread is oblong, then it's OK.

Everyone who disagrees with me is wrong.

Once you lower that knife you are flirting with danger. With an uncut sammich you already have four sides where stuff can fall out. Diagonal cut increases this to six, and horizontal exposes a whopping eight. Think of the condiments!

I put stuff on my sammich that I don't put on my husbands so I cut my sammich diagonally and I cut hubbys down the middle (so I can tell who's is who's).

I guess I swing both ways.

This is exactly how to roll. I'm having a muffaletta this weekend, my kid is having an egg salad. we're both going to be very happy, as long as we don't look at each other's plates.

Modern technology has solved the sammich identification problem. We can leave barbaric cutting practices behind.

Diagonally is definitely better.



Slicing diagonally gives you greater access to a crustless surface and the delicious, aesthetically pleasing innards of the hypotenuse. If you had 5 x 5 inch slices of bread, you have a total of 20 inches of crust. Slicing it diagonally gives you about 14 inches of crustless surface vs 10 inches if sliced horizontally. Triangles are also more visually pleasing than rectangles, plate better, and are easier to eat.

i cut my sandwiches in fours, so they most always look like one of these



Mostly they look like the bottom one, with four squares, but for grilled not-cheese i cut it in four triangles....

and occasionally my sandwiches are cut like this:



i don't have as many cute cutters as Bard, so i can only make dinos.

Cutting them in half is an unnecessary extra step for something I'm going to soon be shoving in my mouth.

Do you eat the crust off first?

Oops!

I voted diagonally, because my Mom always did it that way. But I don't think I cut 'em at all for me any more.

Everyone I prepare for gets diagonal, so I guess that carries the proper weight in the poll.

I never slice my sandwich at all. Why bother? It's gone in 3 bites and 37 seconds anyway.
