Simple Tip: Warm Butter in Between Toast

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:

  1. Use a butter knife to cut a sliver or small pat of cold butter. Place on a piece of toast.
  2. Cover with another piece of toast, creating a stack.
  3. Wait a minute for the butter to melt. Move the top slice to the bottom. Wait another minute.
  4. Once the butter is warm, spread to cover the toast with the knife.

How do you warm cold butter for toast?

I've been doing this for years! Sometimes I don't have to put the bread pieces together; I just let the butter sit for a few minutes and then spread it.
