I have cheese in my hot cross buns and my dh thinks this is very strange. Aibu?

Please let me know if you also have cheese so I can prove I'm not a weirdo grin

That's pretty weird - salted butter all the way!

I start eating hot cross buns from when they hit the shops. Its not weird or the shops wouldn't be selling them!

Cheese?!? Wtf?? You weirdo grin

Cheese in hot cross buns is all kinds of wrong! What kind of person are you? I have them toasted with butter.

My DC have them with either chocolate spread or peanut butter so no I don't think cheese is odd.

Cheese is lovely in a hot cross bun.

YABU. HCB's are sweet, surely?

Oh no! I thought everyone did parents did. Must be where I get it from. Just to clarify, its a cheddar or a mild cheese not roquefort or brie which would be weird

I'm eating a chocolate and caramel one so cheese would be v weird in this one! But I dont thi k it's weird in an ordinary one. I love a bit of Cheshire cheese on fruit cake.

Nothing wrong with cheese on a hot cross bun and definitely cheese with fruit cake.

Yes they’re sweet but the cheese goes lovely with them. I toast them and put slices of cheese in them. Try it.

I have put HC buns with cheese in, into my children’s packed lunch instead of a sandwich!

I'm eating a chocolate and caramel one

Those ones are as sick and wrong as eating a normal one with cheese.

Never heard of this in my life! I love HCB’s, I could literally eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner from Boxing Day till Easter, but just with butter. I think the chocolate ones are weird and have never tried those.

Damn you, I want a HCB now! grin

MiddleClassProblem Sat 02-Mar-19 09:32:04

M&S sell hot cross buns all year round so people must buy them all year round DH

AhoyDelBoy Sat 02-Mar-19 09:33:08

Snap Dahlietta. Why do they have to try and reinvent the wheel with stuff like this. HCB’s are HCB’s no chocolate or caramel required! We haven’t got that flavyhere in Australia yet, that will probably be next Easter confused

Flavour here
All year round!? considers moving to the UK

Nothing weird with cheese and hot cross buns. It’s no different to fruit loaf or malt loaf with cheese.

Hot Cross Buns on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday only, for me! A really good independent shop with its own bakery makes them, and they are the best. Having grown up in a traditional Irish Catholic family, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday were two of my favorite times of the year-I LOVE plaice and LOVE proper hot cross buns. No chesse though! Only Kerrygold buttergrin

Favourite! Darn you, predictive text!

MilkItTilITurnItIntoCheese Sat 02-Mar-19 09:37:23

It's weird. But if it helps I have family members that put cheese on malt loaf. That's also weird imo but they swear it's fab.

Procrastination4 Sat 02-Mar-19 09:37:31

Argh! Cheese! Right, that’s a sign that I need to go and start my Saturday.

Warpdrive Sat 02-Mar-19 09:37:38

I know someone who has cheese and jam on their hot cross bun.
