I’m nearly 37 years old and I’ve never had marmite.

How is best to try it?

Tiny scraping on very buttery toast.

That, with scrambled egg on top.

Or whirled through pasta with a knob of butter.

In a cucumber sandwich.

On a buttered cream cracker.

With peanut butter.

On toast smile

Put it in a box. Wrap it up. Post it to the moon grin

Soften butter. Put some marmite in ( experiment with how much). Whip together. Put in fridge to set a bit. Have on hot toast.

On toast is the way to go. Next, you should try Gentleman's Relish, also on toast.

@BrassicaBabe grin

Ok, toast seems to be the way to go. Is it eaten for breakfast?

I will not be trying gentleman’s relish because it sounds like jizz

On toast anytime, we do it topped with a poached egg for breakfast, but you must spread thinly at first of you are a Marmite newbie.

I agree - a scraping on buttery thick white toast. Can't beat it. I always add a teaspoon to beefy things like bolognaise, chilli - even added some to a batch of French onion soup I made this week. Dh can't stand the thought of it on toast, but it's very liberal when adding it to the above recipes! It's a fab thing to have in the cupboard.

Hot crumpets, butter, marmite then cheese under the grill till cheese is melting, then a spoonful or two of hot baked beans on top..yum 😊

Lauraloop1516 Sun 04-Aug-19 15:04:56

@redelephants - oooh, yes to hot crumpets! Only discovered this quite recently. Lashings of salted butter and marmite - perfect grin

mermaidbutmytailfelloff Sun 04-Aug-19 15:05:36

Straight out of the jar on a teaspoon.... I love marmite

JellyTeapot Sun 04-Aug-19 15:15:38

On thickly buttered white toast with some slices of strong cheddar. Mmmmm, off to see if there's any bread left...

Lauraloop1516 Sun 04-Aug-19 15:18:57

@jellyteapot - I've just fished crumpets out of the freezer. Couldn't resist wink

AdaColeman Sun 04-Aug-19 15:38:34

If you don't try it DeepfriedPizza you will never know what you are missing! wink

Have you eaten deep fried pizza?

DeepfriedPizza Sun 04-Aug-19 16:03:16

Yep, I’ve eaten deep fried pizza many times. And battered deep fried pizza. Delicious

I’ll buy a jar tomorrow and let you all know

I like thin white bread, thickish cold butter and marmite. Yum.

Holenewme Sun 04-Aug-19 16:08:53

Toast a crumpet. Put enough butter on to fill all the crumpet holes. Spread thin layer of marmite on top of the butter lake. Eat while it’s still hot. Repeat until you run out of crumpets or have a heart attack.

Leakinglikeacolander Sun 04-Aug-19 17:19:19

Seriously there is such a thing as battered deep fried pizza 🍕

DeepfriedPizza Sun 04-Aug-19 19:35:23

Yep. Well, there is in the west of Scotland. It’s called a pizza crunch

Can confirm a pizza crunch. Hugh Jackman has a taste in a chip shop in Clydebank. I read about it, and then he spoke about it at at least one of his Glasgow gigs. I heard him!

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Sun 04-Aug-19 20:06:13

I like to microwave baking potatoes until almost cooked through then slice them in half, scoop out the potato and mash with butter, cheese and marmite, then put back into the skins, top with more cheese and bake in the oven until the cheese is crispy. Perfection.

Hoppinggreen Sun 04-Aug-19 20:08:24

Toast with white bread and real butter bit only a scraping of marmite
My dc made it for me last mother’s day and smothered it - it removed the lining of my mouth ( had to force it down as they were so pleased with themselves)
