Toast

Our toaster died a couple of days ago. The new one ordered by MadameB arrived this afternoon. It has a bagel button.

And butteries

Oh yes! Pity nowhere in the south of Oxfordshire sells them. My sister, who lives not a million miles away in Surrey, used to make them when she worked in the Bridge of Don Tesco.

Alas, none of my attempts to make any using her recipe have ever come out even close to looking or tasting like the real thing.

What are butteries?

A bagel button? I’m interested.

A buttery, or rowie, is an Aberdeen delicacy.

Imagine a flat, heavy, greasy, salty bread roll.

It's much greasier than a bagel, more like flattened croissant.

AA, I can recommend those from the Bakehouse in Crathie if you are passing through.

yumyum, the bagel button is for toasting one side more than the other.

Proper bagels should only be toasted if they are not fresh. This is the law. Obviously the crap supermarket ones don’t count.

Link please to magic bagel one side more than the other toaster.

It exists. It's called a grill.

Toast, crumpets and on occasion, muffins. Not those American fairy cake abominations, muffin muffins.

#31: Not available. I think the current design is this:

Mine is red.

Does anyone else let toast go cold and just have it with butter? The butter has to be quite cool as well.

WibbleAgain - 21 Feb 2021 18:47:59 (#35 of 58)

That's a biscuit or cracker.

Toast with anchovys mashed up and sliced up for dipping in boiled eggs are refered to as Marines.

I quite like crumpets like that - well toasted and then cooled. Not absolutely cold, but just warm enough to soften but not melt the butter.

Melba toast is good. Sadly no one sells thinly sliced bread any more.

Flashback -- I once worked in the stillroom of a big hotel and had to make mountains of melba toast. WAAAH!
