Dry toast, really?

To expect the toast to be buttered if you order scrambled eggs on toast?

That's just wrong! Send it back

Yeah got to be buttered. If I'm having scrambled eggs I want maximum butter!

ThisAintALoveSong Fri 10-Mar-17 10:59:11

The least they could do is provide those little butter packets so you have the option of dry or not

Our local cafe is lovely but they don't butter their toast, they will present you with beans/eggs on toast and put a small sachet of butter on the plate. I'm yet to work out how to butter toast which has beans all over it.

My dad used to make me eat dry toast as a teen if I came home drunk envy

Butter serves only to moisten toast. If toast has beans or eggs on it, it is sufficiently moist. It therefore requires no further moistening with butter.


And can I have points for using a hated word three times in three different participles?

Maid your post makes me extremely uncomfortable grin

ThisAintALoveSong Fri 10-Mar-17 11:03:29

Haha moist 😂

PurpleDaisies Fri 10-Mar-17 11:04:45

I agree with maid. No butter for me.

I do not approve of the multiple uses of "moist".

Maximum salted proper butter on toast then scrambled eggs on top 😋

Send it back!

<<doesn't like the word moist>>

You need butter to make the toast tasty!

DH refuses to put butter under peanut butter. I think he's weird.

IamFriedSpam Fri 10-Mar-17 11:07:49

Maid you are wrong on so many levels! Butter tastes blooming delicious, wouldn't even bother with beans on toast without loads of melted butter on the toast first!

EdmundCleverClogs Fri 10-Mar-17 11:08:31

Butter is always needed for bread/toast! What is wrong with people.

Maid, use that word again, and I'm reporting you angry.

supercue Fri 10-Mar-17 11:09:32

Surely the butter is needed for flavour, even without the moistness issue.

And while we are at it, it must be butter and lots of it. There should be extremely harsh punishments to any establishments that serves spread unless specifically requested by vegans or the dairy allergic.

And the punishment must be doubled if they have described spread as butter, especially after only cracking under interrogation by the customer of the 'are you sure that is butter, and yes I mean actual real butter' variety.

I am sick and fucking tired of sending back food contaminated with spread. The worst offenders were Booths were I paid a small fortune for what I hoped was going to be the holy grail of bacon butties only to find it heavily spread with spread and there was hardly any bacon in it. Should have gone to McDonalds like first planned.

You don't need butter for flavour if you've got HP sauce.

AIBU to really fancy scrambled egg on highly buttered toast after reading this thread? Brunch awaits...

BillyButtfuck Fri 10-Mar-17 11:18:41

HP Sauce envy

supercue Fri 10-Mar-17 11:19:52

I complained and was given a small frozen pack of butter. I removed the egg, placed icy lumps of butter on the toast and replaced the 'by now cold' egg.

No moistness was achieved and no pleasure from eating it either.

I dislike butter and always ask for it 'dry' if eating out. The sky hasn't fallen smile

Name a food that is not improved by adding fat and salt.

You can't.

If you think you can, you're mistaken.

By improved, clearly we are talking taste, not health value.

BillyButtfuck Fri 10-Mar-17 11:23:22

OP that sounds extremely unsatisfying

Have you checked both sides of the bread? They often serve it butter side down for some reason.
