    Sandwiches

    Earlier today i made a sandwich for my son. I put butter on both slices of bread as i always do... then whilst feeding it to my son my husband says "You shouldnt put it on both slices. You only put it on one slice!".
    Anyways so heres the Question just to find out which is more common to do.

    How do you do your sandwiches?
    1) No butter/marg
    2) Butter/marg one slice
    3) Butter/marg both slices

    I know it will also depend on the filling but im just going for in general.
    Thankyou to everyone in advance

    both slices.

    i butter both slices, unless im using mayo or cheese spread, then i dont butter the slice that has mayo/cheese spread

    I put butter on both sides I don't even think about it lol, I have a nvq in catering and I was just told to do what ever, if you like it on both you can but it's more healthier to only put it on 1 side

    Both sides, surely if you only put butter on 1 side then the other side would be really dry to eat and not very nice to eat!!

    None, don't like the taste of fat unless it's on an animal

    Also if the bread you are using is dry/nearly out of date definatly put it on both sides, but always try to use less butter because it's bad for you

    both sides

    none, i hate butter in sandwichs, only thing i have butter on is toast

    Both.... every time!!! :thumbsup:

    not at all............they are even thinking to put ban on butter............

    no butter on either from me - just plenty of meat does the job with a bit of mustard. mmmmm

    Thanks to everyone who answered. rep left. looks a bit like 50/50 but not really just the one slice. so i guess hes wrong for once. lol. thanks for your help.

    butter one side filling on the other

    thats how it works!!!!! lol

    depends on the person, i butter only one or neither, dont like eating a sandwich full of butter or mayo or mustard or any sauce really

    If i'm using butter, i butter both sides, otherwise it tastes quite dry.
    But if it's a filling other than cheese, then i don't use butter.

    Both sides!

    It holds the sandwich apart!

    Both - always

    Someone mentioned sealing the sanny with butter on each slice. Anyway, my mum put butter on everything, fried daily in butter and had heart disease. I hate butter.

    Both sides for sarnies 1 side for rolls.
    1st thing ex~m~in~law usta do whn given a sarnie was open it 2 chek. Lol (sair~faced auld cow)

    Both sides, thats how I roll.

    Both sides unless there is mayo in it , then none

    none, butter is yuck. I hate buying ready made sannies cause they are always slimy!

    Either 1 or none, and depending on the filling, a bit of mayo on one side.

    Same here.

    both, and it's got to be spread right to the edges

    Both. My girlfriend insists on putting it on one side. Put it this way, she will NEVER do it again.

    one only otherwise its too buttery!

    I butter all four sides, just to make sure.

    I agree. But not too thick. Except on toast, where I want it dripping off the edges and down to my wrists.

    A very valid point. :thumbsup:

    I don't have butter on sarnies myself but when making for others i only butter one side.

    My ex once commented and said both sides should be buttered,at a later date whilst making his sarnies for work i went back to buttering only one side and after a few days he hadn't even noticed!

    I think it's psychological!

    I used to put butter on both sides, but I thought I would cut down & only have it on one slice :thinking:

    both, but i use flora light not butter

    never used butter on sarnies, kids now dislike taste of fatty sandwhiches. same goes for sugared tea if you never use it the kids grow up prefering the "healthier" taste.

    I know,i never understand why parents put sugar on kids cereal for example,surely they'd like it without as they'd never know the difference.

    sandwiches..............would rather have a sandwich than chocolate any day

    I can't be bothered with spread these days just go straight in with the aioli

    Correct :thumbsup:
    Nearly all cereals already contain high amounts of sugar in the first place, also the milk contains sugar too.
    So they would still be getting a nice battering on their teeth.
    Putting sugar on cereal is like putting tomato ketchup on tomatoes.

    Low fat spread thin on both slices.
