If you don't keep butter at room temperature, it can be pretty hard to spread it straight out of the fridge onto a piece of toast. That's why I've been employing my dad's easy technique for quickly melting butter between toast for years. Here's what you do:
- Use a butter knife to cut a sliver or small pat of cold butter. Place on a piece of toast.
- Cover with another piece of toast, creating a stack.
- Wait a minute for the butter to melt. Move the top slice to the bottom. Wait another minute.
- Once the butter is warm, spread to cover the toast with the knife.
