buttered toast quandry...what to do?

yummymummy | Jan 5, 2005 04:57 PM

When I pull out the browned toasty bread from the toaster, I like to slather it with softened salted butter so the butter just melts into the crispy toast. Here's where the problem lies....I don't want the bread to get soggy from the condensation that collects on the plate if I butter it on a plate right out of the toaster. The sunflower seeds on the crust of the bread always seem to burn my hands if I try the mid-air butter spread bypassing the plate entirely. If I put the toast into a linen lined bread basket, it doesn't cool completely, but once it reaches the table, it no longer melts the butter as I like it to. I just want warm, buttery, crispy toast....is that too much to ask? How do you hounds deal with this?
