This is how the majority of British people ate their Marmite when they were kids. There are many variations, including cheese, baked beans, etc. but this is the fundamental. Master this before getting creative!
- 1 slice bread, preferably white
- 1 lump butter, preferably salted (this is harder in Italy, but the Marmite’s so salty you probably won’t notice)
- Toaster (or a grill)
1. Toast the bread.
2. Butter the bread.
Use a generous lump. If it doesn’t all melt don’t worry, you can put the excess back in the dish.
Make sure it’s covering the bread and all melty and lovely. Now to the denoument!
3. Spread the Marmite.
First dip into a virgin pot. How sensuous. How exciting.
You only need to use a little. Marmite is strong stuff.
Spread the Marmite thin. This may be more than many people can handle. Personally I usually use double, but I’m a masochist like that.
Perfection and nostalgia all rolled into one.
