  • 1 inch slice Brown Bread
  • 1 inch slice Wheat Bread
  • Butter
  • Mayonnaise, or
  • Any preferred sandwich paste


Bake brown bread or graham bread in ordinary bread pans same size and shape as wheat bread. Cut in 1 inch slices! Butter thickly one slice of brown and one of wheat and press the buttered sides together. Cut this thick sandwich in 1 inch slices, crosswise. Spread each of these slices again thickly with butter or any desired sandwich paste on cut side showing the brown and white layers; then press the slices together in pairs to form long blocks 2 inches square, the brown and white alternating each other as in a checker board. Then cut each block in thin slices and arrange sandwiches on serving plate to show checks.
