Depends on which side of the ocean you're on. I'm from Arkansas and have never (at least not until now) heard of a 'Butty', but if we put it on bread, it would probably be butt roast sandwich.
In the UK a butty is a buttered bread roll with one filling (ie., bacon--as in bacon butty). While a sandwich can consist of more than one filling as most people like to add lettuce and tomato and cheese.
Does that sound right?
Hi Sandra even though I asked the question, you have me asking another now with what you say a butty is. To be honest I had never heard of the word myself before I moved near to the area of "Liverpool" - a common word here for what I always called a sandwich. However Keith above gave me the reply I was expecting to hear but still going to do a little research.
This has comment has just given my next question (Thank you)
Keep well Sandra
The word butty is used as a synonym for sandwich in some parts of the UK (especially in the north), but is more commonly used to refer specifically to sandwiches with certain cooked fillings - chips, bacon, egg or sausage usually.
