I Don't Really Care For Butter On My Bread

Eat_Nopal | Jul 8, 2008 08:36 AM

I don't mind butter on bread, I have nothing against it... I am the type of guy that chooses 2 1/2 star hotels when I travel on expense just so that I can make myself a 1/4 waffle with 3 pats of real butter....

But if I am eating a quality, hearty, tasty bread I think butter dumbs it down, and detracts from the complex, almost warrior like qualities of a good loaf of bread.

Southern European bread is different... (some ignorant people accuse typical Italian, Spanish or Portugese breads of being tasteless, hard etc., without really understanding)... its made for Olive Oil.... the oil is the big deal in many regions... the bread is just a vehicle... and shouldn't get in the way....

But I feel Northern / Central European style breads... well its all about the bread itself... butter is just historically a peasant addition to get more calories & vital lipids in the diet. But we don't toil the fields all day... so butter is irrelevent to me.

Am I the only one... or do I have some bretheren out there?
