I’m not a fan of Nigella so this made me laugh and cheered up my otherwise melancholy mood. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

I've been doing something similar for years!

Always seems a shame when all the butter has melted, so if it goes uneaten long enough for that to happen, I'll put more on

That's how I've always buttered mine! But with salted butter usually.

And, if possible, only toasted one side.

Hmmmmmmm

When we were watching the other night the mad witch was chopping up fish fingers and cooking them in a wok with some other stuff! I couldn't believe what I was watching. Quite funny though.

Then according to the spawn of Lawson you're doing it wrong. Use unsalted butter.....then put salt on it. But only sea salt, your sodium chloride shouldn't come from anywhere else.

I had a girlfriend in the 80's who used to toast bread, butter it, salt it, put cheese on it, grill the cheese, then butter and salt the whole thing.

May have been an urban myth but didn't Fanny Haddock try to tell people that there was a

right way and wrong way to boil water?

(What's the difference between Fanny Craddock and a cross cointry run?

A cross country run is a pant in the country😂)

That's what I was wondering. 

I've never heard of such a thing.

She died when she was 47.

An old mutual friend came round to give me the news. As soon as he left I opened a bottle of cava. This was coincidental, but.............

Neither had I. It was ludicrously fatty salty tasty if you were in the right herbally induced mood. Much like the butter fried buttery cheese sandwich she also favoured.

Can't be any worse for you than the deep fried butter on a stick that they eat in America.

I let the toast cool a bit so the butter lingers unmelted a bit longer. Completely the opposite with crumpets, though.

I find it a bit odd that lots of people put salt on their dripping .

Talking of weird toast methods... at uni there were signs everywhere in our halls to not put butter on bread and THEN put it in the toaster... 

They only appeared in our halls and the only thing different to other halls was ours housed the Malaysian foreign students... so not sure if it's a Malaysian thing??

My father in law, fries bacon in cheese when we're camping. The cheese melts and the fat is enough to fry and some of the cheese bits sorta caramelize. As a vegetarian I'm both repulsed and in reverence, of such a concoction.

The Americans do things like cheese fried chicken or steak, but they would, wouldn't they.

A lot of Asian cultures don't really do butter - so maybe that is the reason for the signage.

Many years ago, I had a hilarious exchange with a Chinese colleague during my PhD studies in which I had to dismantle my cheese sandwich one lunchtime to try and explain to him the difference between butter and cheese!

Why? It's just fat, the same as butter, but it has more flavour.

In reply to Hardonicus:

That's a good point. I always presumed they maybe didn't do toasters.... but it may have been the butter (or both)
