What do you like on your bread?

While not contributing to the good side of the good/bad debate, this study suggests that butter has a neutral or minimal impact as a cause for mortality, CVD, and diabetes.

PLOS ONE: Is Butter Back? A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Butter Consumption and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, and Total Mortality

Now I would like to see a similar study for bacon

Based on forum discussions, I thought all bread had now been found to be evil, and we are not supposed to eat it.

Personally I have always hated anything fatty or greasy, although I do bake with butter. But whereas everyone used to condemn the sugar and butter in cookies, now they exclaim with horror over the flour!

I just chose that for a title, as its one use for butter, and although I love bread, I abstain due to diabetes

Fresh tomato slices on homemade whole wheat bread. No mayo. (I hate mayo).

My sister has gone about as close to 100% anti-carbohydrates as she can get, and she feels so much better.

I asked her the other day why she's not lost any weight, however.

I'm into Salt Rising Bread, however it's just so hard to find except in rare bakeries. When they open the starter can, the smell tells them how good the bread's going to be.

I don't eat much bread, beyond the occasional sourdough loaf I make myself.

But when I do, I like lots of butter on it. My favorite is the Kerrygold butter from Ireland. Costco has a good price on it, so I buy a bunch and keep it in the freezer until needed.

Not toasted I like butter on sourdough or plain rolls. If toasted either butter, cheese, or more rarely butter-sugar-cinnamon.

I like to toast my bread and use 4x jalapeño raspberry jelly on top. Not sure what health benefits this has.... or not

We're off bread for the most part. I second the Kerrygold butter. My favorite snack-I have it every day-is Kerrygold butter on rice crackers from Safeway(Calif. supermarket). We did a "Whole 30" program a while back, which excludes crackers, bread, sugar, alcohol etc.-basically strict Paleo. Felt fantastic. But I missed my favorite snack most of all!

There's bread, and there's bread.

Fresh artisan bread doesn't need anything, it's wonderful just as it it IMO. Might dab it in a little EVOO.

But for more ordinary bread, butter or EVOO is all I'd want, maybe lightly toasted. In many Italian restaurants, we'll combine EVOO, parm and (crushed or black) pepper on a side plate, and dab warm italian bread in it while looking over the menu. Yum

That's what I'm talking about.

I am a carbaholic but have reduced my intake of chips. My favorite sandwich is toasted, PB&J (Jalapeno jelly is awesome), pickles, and Cholula. Yummy!!!

I do run and work-out a lot so am able to burn most of the carbs off.

cd :O)

I could live on bread and butter. I never bought into the margarine thing, even when butter was villainized as the worst thing you could eat. My wife caught me once buttering some tortilla chips. Very yummy, but she was horrified.

My Aunt's (now deceased) homemade oven baked bread with good old butter on it, fresh out of the oven.

But that was 50 years ago. Now? I don't eat bread due to the carb-restricted (self-inflicted) regiment I am on.

That's hilarious . My mother put "butter" on everything when I was growing up (she called margarine "butter"). I try to do the same with real unsalted butter, as our house is now a margarine-free zone.

Depends on the time of day.

Breakfast: Butter & blueberry jelly
Rest of the day: LOTS of butter and some bacon and fresh summer tomato slices, or gravy, or melted cheese.

There is no such thing as too much butter in my book.
