How do you have your bread with soup

Does anyone here butter their bread then dunk it in their soup,yuk,lol.

My son in law swears by it,he’s English I’m not and he says everyone does it do you?

Never!!!I have my bread buttered but I never dunk it in my soup. I usually have a half a baguette with it although sometimes I will have some sort of flavoured bread- like a herb or cheesy focaccia 😁🐰

I do it all. I dunk but also use a spoon 🥄 for soup and bread 🍞 afterwards. What do u do?

in reply to Zoom12345

No it’d be awful greasy to me if I dunked it with butter,I like to break my dry bread into my soup give a stir then eat using my spoon.

Lol he’s like my 4 what hard lives they have Not! I usually have one on each corner of the bed and the youngest cuddled into my arms but when I move house and they can go out to play again they’re all banned from bedroom they’ll be relegated to their own beds.I only have them beside me for cuddle time each night then they go downstairs to their own beds they are very clever and know the routine.

Definitely sounds like it. You could take some drastic measures like a whistle. I tend to be a bit too polite and as soon as money is mentioned I put the phone down. Have you by chance signed a petition about Syrian refugees? Often they will insist on a phone number, and get you that way.

Cheers, Midori

I do dunk bread in soup but I don’t put butter on it 😄

I dunk grilled cheese mmmm

I most definitely do dunk buttered (or unbuttered) bread in my soup! I also tear it into small pieces and throw a few at a time into the soup. Reckless, I know! Don't know if it's relevant but I am half English, half Irish, grew up in England! 🙂🌸

in reply to Marnie22

Love Camden. Actually we were more in Chalk Farm. That was back when I was 21! Many, many, many years ago! Xxx

BTCCET profile image
BTCCET in reply to Niao

Wow that's a coincidence, we live more the other way, up towards Kentish Town, Camden is very trendy now! The place to be for the nightlife if you're the right age😂 my mates and I still go down there occasionally for a game of bingo (or we did) 🙄

Niao profile image
Niao in reply to BTCCET

Know Kentish Town well, or did, last time I was there was 1995. Camden was already very trendy when I was there in 1985, fantastic nightlife and markets etc. Used to see Rik Mayall quite a bit there, think he lived in Kentish Town. And some from Eastenders, amongst others. Got chatted up by one of them in the Hawley Arms!😁 Xxx

Aww. Yes I think it was one of the first places I went if my memory serves me well, which it quite often doesn't! I made it my mission to visit absolutely as many bars as I could possibly manage, so it's all quite a blur now!😁💜

I was telling Marilyn, when I worked at the Interchange, I had the keys to the tunnels/catacombs and the staff were always asking me to take them down there. And 90% of those asking were women, it seems the fairer sex like scary thingsmore than us men !!😁😁😘

You referring to yourself there, which would be more scary, catacombs or Bazzak!😁 I'd love to go down there, if I could find another tour guide! Only kidding! 😘😘😘

BazzakReading Rabbits in reply to Niao

It used to run a long way in different directions all the way to Morrisons and along the canal to the Euston railway track, but they built new offices by the canal and cut off the tunnels, which was a shame 🙄😘

Like Soho :Berwick St, Wardour St area- lost all its character.

BTCCET profile image
BTCCET in reply to MadBunny

It's so sad Maria Camden had its own unique atmosphere even before the stables Market and that sprung up, its already changed so much it doesn't need any more done to it! xx

MadBunny profile image
MadBunny in reply to BTCCET

I never knew Camden. Another 'victim' is the old Spitalfields/ Brick lane areas. Yes, progress can be a good thing, but so much character has been lost.

I know the Berwick St area quite well- my hairdressers was just off it- now in Wardour St and Berwick St had a fantastic market- especially fruit n veg- and so many unique little shops. And characters.

And as for Hertford- well, don't get me started!🐰

My youngest daughter loves Hertfordshire it's her ambition to one day live in Ware? I hope she achieves it, as we've all learnt from this last year we should know what we want to do and go for it! 😘

MadBunny in reply to BTCCET

Absolutely. I'm certainly going to do that.- within reason of course😁I always said I'd never dwell on the past and on the whole I've been very content with my life but over this year I have been reflecting quite a bit. I certainly wish I'd travelled a lot more. Why does she like Ware? It is a nice little town and there's not as much development as in other places.😁🐰

That sounds nice. I dnt like it mushy either the secret is half and quarter the bread the just drop a broken up quarter at a time into the soup then eat that lot and repeat lol.that just gave me an idea for another thread lol

Yes.... I do it!!!!

ddmagee1 profile image
ddmagee1 in reply to Veteran250

Me too, Don! I like the taste of soup, crackers and butter all together - especially potato soup, with leek!!! So, I butter the crackers, and dip them in the soup! It is a most luscious taste!

ddmagee1 profile image
ddmagee1 in reply to ddmagee1

I use crackers and bread both, interchangeably sometimes!

😊Yum, homemade lentil soup! Yum to all actually, though I can't have the clam chowder, unless there's a vegan clam!

in reply to Niao

I drop a slice of Parma ham into my lentil soup Niao then I blend it all when it’s cooked and it’s a lovely smoky lentil and bacon flavour,cheats way I know but quick and tasty in the soup maker.x

Niao profile image
Niao in reply to

Mmmmmmm, I could put in vegan bacon. Xxx

in reply to Niao

Yes sometimes I put crispy streaky bacon in it,it’s such a nice change everything is so bland these days,I’ve even been doing a jacket potato with curried cauliflower as a filling,I think I had Covid and it killed my taste buds so I seem to want strong flavours in everything.good idea xx

Yum again! That's not nice though, I really do hope it improves! Xxx

in reply to Niao

I’m ok now thankyou Niao knocked the stuffing out me at the time but it’s just that lack of taste I’m finding with everything.on the plus side it’s making my cooking more interesting lol,xx

We don't have bread with our soup very often Daisydot1. I quite often put bread into soup in the way of croutons, but our household favours a nice buttered cheese scone with our soups.

in reply to Callendersgal

Now that’s a new one on me too Callendersgal.I love scones but usually as part of a cream tea lol.

It can be for sure, and I'm really thankful there's such a choice these days.

I’m just waiting on my house move completing and I can’t wait to have a garden again but my plan is to grow container vegetables, have you had any success with them or are yours ground dwellers?

I'm English and never dunk buttered bread in soup! Dry bread yes. I do butter my bread but take a bite then have some soup. It may be common in just one part of England but certainly not when I am. Many think English folk are all the same but we all have different customs in different areas.

in reply to hypercat54

It’s a bit like all Scots eat deep fried Mars bars ,I’d never even heard of that and lived the first third of my life in Glasgow.

Me too, on and off veggie/vegan most my life. I was used to the Martian stare! Yep it can be hard to ensure good protein levels etc.

😊👍

No never. If I have soup it's always unbuttered bread that I have with it.

focused1 profile image
focused1Reading Rabbits

Depends who I am with and where I am . In company in a decent venue I rarely have soup but would slice a roll in half , butter and break off pieces . No dipping . At home sometimes folded uncut bread with generous amount of butter to dip in a cup a soup or dish . I know when to behave and when I won't get caught but my family wouldn't notice as they are men who eat fast and furious .

Midori profile image
MidoriVisually impaired

I'm English too. For me it depends on the soup and the bread, I only butter very thinly on sliced toasted bread. French bread I don't.
