Please help me and my DP with this. He's just made a sandwich for me. Do you butter both pieces or just the 1?

Both. Why wouldn't you?

Just the 1...butter both then you lose the taste of the sandwich filler.

Both, with a thin layer.

Both, I hate dry sandwiches. DH doesn't have butter at all, which is just wrong I think.

Both, it helps to waterproof the bread from soggy fillings.

What I asked for was some bread. He buttered one then put grated cheese inside then a plain bit of bread on top. So not soggy fillings. Just a bit strange.

Neither. Butter and its variants is the devil's own food.

Just one

Both if i can be bothered, 1 if i cant. Both is better but its still tastey either way. Its the peopl who dont butter at all...shudder.

Neither. I love butter but it's rank next to wet fillings and pointless next to dry. Mayonnaise for preference.

One. My friend says "But then how does it stick together?"

It doesn't! You hold it together!

Two is over indulgent...and too buttery.

Just the 1

Both unless it's peanut butter then none.

Both always and spread right to the edges

BertieBotts Sat 20-Aug-16 06:12:00

Both, except I am rarely patient enough to wait for the butter to soften, so I don't bother.

I don't really like sandwiches.

I never butter sandwiches unless it's just bread and butter. If it's any kind of meat I have mayo and if it's peanut butter I just have that.

This is so weird I never knew it was a thing to actually choose only one slice buttered. I have had sandwiches where one slice of bread is naked and assumed it was either a mistake or stinginess

Both if it's spreadable thinly. One if the butter is too hard or bread too soft to get it thin enough.

Spreadable butter for preference because that can be spread very thinly.

And grated cheese needs both sides buttered to stick it otherwise the cheese goes bloody everywhere.

Neither. I spread with mayonnaise and mustard.
