I dunno, as I said, I don`t butter my bread usually anyway. I always find it too greasy.

@Mamba: why not just put a slice of cheese between the wet stuff and the bread? Won`t go soggy then. At least, it won`t go soggy if you eat it within any reasonable amount of time.

Those have been in the UK for years!

They had allsorts that put pictures on the bread too. They were on dragon`s den a while back too, company was having finance issues i guess.

Oh...someone already mentioned that^

On the subject of buttering bread,never knew it was just a British thing and don`t often do it myself. It`s to make it less dry though, like how you`de have a buttered cracker (wait is that a British thing too O.o I`m sure someone said that`s an insult in america). Anyway, makes bread more edible no matter how stale I guess, or maybe if its a really dry sandwich like a crisp buttie (crap is that just a British thing too idk). Or for something really wet like tomato or cucumber (ok, that one is British) it stops the bread going soggy!

[quote]the point of butter on the bread is to prevent the filling making the bread go soggy[/quote]

Yeah, I`ve had people make that rationalisation to me too. In decades of making sandwiches with some pretty wet fillings (e.g., kippers), I`ve never had bread go soggy. It also doesn`t explain why British people put butter or margarine on Every Single Sandwich They Make, whether it contains bacon, cold dry meat like chicken, or anything in between. They even put it on toast - yuck!! It`s like butter and bread are inextricably linked in their minds.

Even when you go into a shop that "makes sandwiches fresh", I often find myself asking for no butter, only for them to turn round and say that they pre-buttered all the bread! - WTFingF!! How is that fresh?, and did you just assume that everyone would *like* butter? Answer: yes, you did!!

...not that I let it bother me, you understand.

Mister_C - please refrain from describing the effect you have on females. We`re talking about toast here - keep toast safe for our children.

Are you kidding? Toastabags are ancient, you can get them in Pound Shops (Dollar Stores). They`re a good idea, but they toast the outside, and leave the inside kind of bready and gooey.

Evil_Eye, you provided the Wikipedia link but not the category under which your "spread" falls. Is it dairy, plant, yeast or meat? And what makes it so much better?

While we`re at it, how can Margarine be considered unhealthy while Butter apparently passes your legal rigor unimpeded?

Yea I have had a couple of them for years... I don`t really use it much though.

Butter here is used more for cooking with. We use "Spread" mostly on our toast, that some people think is butter or margarine. Margarine is too unhealthy to pass our legal system and butter is annoyingly hard to spread with.

As someone who has been to American, I get your hate. Your butter sucks compaired to our butter/spread.

Ok wow - what a delicious post! Thank you Gottamgear! I didn`t even consider that my toaster slots were big enough to fit an entire sandwich into until this!

Although I do have a George Foreman grill, I probably could have just used it in that - I should have, actually. Leesah was right about the soggy mess. But that`s the whole point of the bag now from my perspective - you`re SUPPOSED to eat it! Your petulance surprised me, coming from somebody who I`m sure has a lot of experience eating soggy messes.

* Zing.

Firstly- these are common - I buy them in poundland. Secondly the point of butter on the bread is to prevent the filling making the bread go soggy.

Except the bread ends up getting slightly soggy, at least the bottom slice does. I wouldn`t use this all of the time, but I`d certainly give it a go. It might be useful in an office where you can`t cook it on a stove.

vodooshamanwell the article don`t say that the M`erica and Japan team won doing some national bread. Just say that the best teams was Japan and M`erica, for what we know they can have won doing some kind of italian, french or spanish bread. Just for curiosity do an image reserach of Italian, French, Spanish and American bread in Google. You can clearly see how many kind of breads and how many kind of differents doughs and cereals are used in the first 3 countries and you can notice that American one is basicaly just one kind of white bread with the same dough.

@ MacGuffin - you aint lieing. My mother slathered butter on every sandwich she ever made for me as a kid. I hated it. It was like a barrier to keep the bread from being contaminated by the other stuff. Butter and Balogne don`t go together! yech

[quote] is putting salad cream or mayo with tuna a British thing as well?[/quote]

No, others do it too. I do it sometimes. I also will add boiled egg, mustard, and pickles for a tuna salad. But if I`m eating it plain I`ll usually add mayo.

I`m British.....I never use butter on bread, unles it`s toasted.
My favorite still has to be tuna and grated cheese toasted. No button involved there...out of curiosity, is putting salad cream or mayo with tuna a British thing as well? Or is what everyone does?
Again, that`s something else I can`t stand though, drain the brine from the tuna can and it`s ready.....no extra crap to ruin the awesome taste of tuna =]

Yep i`ve noticed that British really love butter. Basicaly what give to the food flavor is the fat and butter is just the concentration of the fat inside the milk. I think they put butter on bread cause the kind of bread you can find in England ( also in USA) is pure tasteless sh*t, not comparable at all with italin, french or spanish bread.

British people have the same blinkered view when it comes to making sandwiches. Ask a Brit for a sandwich, and I guarantee you it will arrive with butter on the bread, whether the filling is cold, hot, wet, dry, whatever, it doesn`t matter: butter is just what British people think you`re meant to put on bread when you`re making a sandwich. Since I can`t stand butter either, this knocks most sandwiches I`ve not made myself out of the picture too!

MacGuffin "and they look at me as if I`m mad" probably you are if you don`t like cheese ;-).
In any way i`m joking, everyone have his personal taste regarding food. I was just curious to know if your hate for cheese is due to an allergy or just cause you ....are mad XD

[quote]omg how can you hate cheese?? Is one of the most delightful food in the world. Have you some allergy? Only in that case i can understand you.[/quote]

I think I remember you saying (when the earthquake link got posted recently) that you live in Italy, pf. I`ve often observed that, if I`d been born in Italy, I would probably have starved to death in infancy, since you guys seem to manage to squeeze cheese into every single dish! I`m that bad, that whenever I go to Italian restaurants with friends, I`ve got to pull the waitress aside and ask her to confirm that there`ll be no cheese in the dish I`m ordering. I know from painful experience that there`ll probably be some in there, even if it`s not listed on the menu, and they look at me as if I`m mad if I complain after the fact. For example, a steak sandwich I ordered turned up smothered in melted cheese one time. Yuck!!!

@Blackhalo - I use these bags at work where they don`t have a breville. Plus, my breville sits at the back of the cupboard not being used. Sound same for most people?

@Leesah - Soggy? You obviously need to get back into your kitchen, who let you out? Toaster bags are made with a particular material which means the toast is toasted as normal.

These things are great.

Probably healthier than using butter on the fry pan, but not as tasty. You could toast the bread in a toaster, then put in cheese and pop in the microwave for a few sec to melt...that would be the same.
