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

Toasted cheese butty!!!

That's a classic 'toaster burn' if I ever came across one....

I assume they're called marines as they're fishy soldiers

Cheese dreams, nothing to touch them.

That's a biscuit or cracker.

No, the toast should be spongy and chewy. And the butter as cold as it can be and still be spreadable.

Mothers used to pass cold buttered toast to us bairns through the high railings mounted on a wall round my primary school playground, every morning playtime.

I can't stand cold toast. Neither can my daughter. She enthuses about melted butter.

You could always combine the two, as Nigella demonstrates here:

'The Platonic Ideal Of Toast'

Melted unsalted butter, then cool solid unsalted butter, then salt poured over it? Nah, I don't think so.

Having said that, my mum was great at getting toast like that. I just accepted it, I never bothered to find out how she did it. My painful loss. However, I'm pretty sure it was salted butter.

Some love, and some hate, for cold buttered toast here -

I use Toasta bags for super quick emergency cheese grillys.

What sort of emergency requires a toasted cheese sandwich?

Antimatter - 23 Feb 2021 21:57:52 (#52 of 58)

Usually too busy/bored/cold to cook a hot lunch, so a toasted cheese sandwich made in the toaster is quick, hot & tasty.

#51 Breakfast?

A cheese and ham toasty is the fifth emergency service

With or without tomatoes?

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

If it's thin sliced bread and you serve it in a toast rack, it's B&B toast. IKWYM and quite enjoy that myself.

Had a toastie with that honey seeded bloomer bread for lunch/brunch. Butter (Aldi West Country salted), red pepper houmous, red onion, slices of red pepper and grated carrot and Aldi lentil crisps on the side.

TauCeti - 24 Feb 2021 14:59:50 (#58 of 58)

#55 sun dried tomatoes preferably.

Had a toastie of some sort for brekky, consisting in a small baguette, cut in half, and placed on top of the toast, as it wouldn't otherwise fit; does that count as a toastie? stuffed with fresh tom sliced thin, one scrambled egg with chopped mushrooms, a dash of mild chili sauce, lettuce, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt, a fresh brew black coffee sweetened with honey.(*)

(*) not IN the toastie...
