  • I miss cold butter

    You know, like sweet cream butter smeared on bread. And here is the part I'd never expect to say... I really don't miss the bread at all - but I miss a carrier for the butter. I've been giving in to rice cakes just to have some sort of butter carrier that won't melt it (like cooked veggies). Any ideas?

    I make piklets out of buckwheat flour, although I have them warm because I love melted butter - yum. You let them cool down though.

      I know exactly what you mean.

      Without having tried it myself, just brainstorming, maybe lettuce or baby spinach--wrap the butter in it, or put it on top of a leaf. Or endive.

      I can also imagine a crock of chilled butter and chives, or fresh herbs, served with any kind of crudite. A little old-fashioned, kind of James Beard-ish, but could work.

      Oooooo--how about par-boiled and room temp or chilled new potato quarters or thick slices?

      And to think, in the name of consuming fewer calories, I didn't have butter on my shopping list this week...

        There are couple of coconut flour muffin recipes floating around here that look like they might be good slathered with butter.

        I love cold butter too. I like to smear it on a hunk of dark chocolate and eat it that way....yummy!

          I've been known to nibble on it straight from the butter dish.

          I also spread it on a Larabar once. YUM.

            Pork rinds. The big ones. And I love to gross out cw types by telling them.

              I'm a fan of rice cakes for almond butter spreading, but I've also seen many gluten-free crackers in my grocery store. Even in non-health oriented grocery stores, you can find at least a couple selections.

              Why don't you also look into gluten-free bread like rice flour bread?

                Thanks for the suggestions. My carb intake has been creeping up due to this recent insatiable craving for butter... I'm trying to get it back down by not eating a sleeve of rice cakes per day...

                I may try it on raw veggies - for some reason cauliflower seems like it might work. Never would have thought to try chocolate - that would be a nice little fat bomb

                Hedonist - What type of pork rinds do you buy? I tried some random brand in our regular grocery store and just couldn't eat them - which amazed me since bacon is something I could eat all day.

                    I put cold butter on cold bacon, or just eat it by itself.

                      If I was craving "carried butter" that bad, I'd just make myself a damn potato and drench that sucker.

                        I haven't tried these yet, but the reviews are good! Might be just the trick for your butter craving! The person who recommended them online said to just leave out the sweetener, its not necessary!

                          Whats wrong with putting it on thinly sliced (cold) steak?

                              Have you ever tried butter on radishes? Apparently it's a French thing, but I love it!
