Sugar and margarine sladdered between two slices of bread. My grandfather who I called "Gump" when I was a little kid used to make me these sandwiches as a snack for me. Come to find out many years later my mom told me my "Gump" made these for her to when she was a kid. I still eat these once in a while as comfort food as I think they are good. Yum! You can use softened butter in place of the margarine but this is what my gram had on hand most often.

My Grandmother used to make this all the time when I was a kid! Thanks for posting. I forgot all about it. Brings back nice memories.

OH MY GOSH.....My Grandmother taught me how to make this when I was really little....Then when my Mother asked where I learned how to make them Grandma Violet denied it! Thanks for bringing back a flood of memories from Grandma's kitchen! P.S. Have you ever tried a mayonnaise sandwich? Same concept, soft white bread with just mayo!

Oh, so this is a universal recipe. My grandmother, who I call Lola, made me these too. I think she made them out of convenience because the ingredients were always on hand and I was told I loved sugar when I was a kid. It's a great comfort food.
