A perfectly timed piece of toast is a beautiful thing. It’s a simple pleasure – a bit of Chorleywood cucina povera, if you will – and something that can provide you with an immense amount of joy. Settling down to a slice, slathered in a layer of butter as thick and rich as a two-pound coin, can make even the bleakest of days a little bit better. There’s more to life than just plain old Kerrygold though. And while the likes of peanut butter, strawberry jam, and marmalade are all well and good in their own right, it’s time that you shook things up when it comes to what you’re putting on your bread.
That’s why I’ve done a lot of long and arduous research to find some excellent spreads that you should be piling onto your bread. Yes, MOB – I booked a ticket to Gluten Airport just for you. These spreads are all excellent additions to your kitchen cupboard and perfect for heaping onto a piping hot slice of toast when you need it the most. Some of them are savoury (hello there, Swedish fish roe!) while others are decidedly sweet and make for a nice end-of-meal treat or sugary pick-me-up.
I hope at least one of these great bread spreads takes your fancy. Oh, and feel free to get in touch with me about your favourite things to spread on toast. I’d genuinely love to know what you’re pairing with your daily bread.
