    This is a tricky one, but I'd say my favourite at the moment is Warburton's Toastie. Light, fluffy and tastes amazing with Guiness Marmite.

    I like that Greek bread with seasame seeds. Something magical happens to those seeds in the toaster.

    That said Greek bread is better not toasted at all just with butter on. Mmmm.

    Not a bad shout (minus the Marmite)

    But you just can't beat fresh bread for toasting.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    Warbies is great for sarnies, but IMO for great toast you need the really cheap and nasty 17p a loaf jobs. The flour, being of crappier quality, toasts MUCH better.

    I agree that fresh bread can be better, but for all round performance, I'd say that Warburtons is best - it stays fresh for ages and that's what gives it the advantage over fresh bread.

    I'm eating some now and it's divine. I could live on toast and tea, no problem

    That's a good point actually - I used to eat Sainsbury's economy bread and that tasted rather nice when toasted. Absolutely shite for sarnies though.

    £5 ain't gonna be enough to wash that mental image away...

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    Sesame oil.

    Just rubbed into the loaf before baking. I've made my own but it never seems quite right (I can never get the crust chewy enough) but it really is lovely.

    Even Tescos in-store baked ones aren't bad.

    Thought it was something like that. I've developed a scary sesame allergy over the last couple of years, my wife suggested I should steer clear of it. Can't eat humous either, which is lovely smeared over toast.

    Slightly old bread toasts better too.

    For white bread, Warburtons have it. You can make the perfect toast with that where the sides are crusty but the inside is still moist and fluffy.

    For brown, the Burgen loaf with cranberry gives a little bit of a fruity edge to a bacon toastie.

    Eeek you have my sympathies. I love a bit of sesame oil added to various things.

    Might be worth making your own hummus and just adding a neutral oil like olive oil to the mix instead of anything else.

    I don't particularly like toast unless it is covered in a fried breakfast or with soup. And to take this off topic a little more.... Bloody Sainsbury’s hamburger buns!!!! Made some super fine burgers last night, stacked them up bacon, pineapple cheese and the rest. Only to have the whole thing disintegrate as I tried to eat it.

    A They are to small
    B They are super poor quality
    C They taste like powdered ass.

    Where the hell are the decent hamburger buns

    Spellink.

    Yep, I love Warburtons too. The Tesco Finest white batch bread is pretty good toasted - a bit crunchier in the crust department.

    Otherwise, fresh bread (out of a bread machine) does indeed win over everything else, but you do need to eat it within 48 hours otherwise it just turns solid.

    I tend to use crusty rolls for this exact reason. Slightly toasting 'em before making your killer burger helps, but the fluffy white burger buns you get in most supermarkets are just horrible and just dissolve the minute you put anything like sauce or mustard on 'em.

    The other key question is....soggy or crispy toast? Personally, I love it all dripping with butter and marmite, really soft and gooey, but my parents religiously put theirs in a toast rack, allow it to cool before eating it cold and crispy. Bleurgh.

    Both are equally great.

    Once worked in a care home and our break consisted of lots of now cold toast that was surplus to requirements - delicious although it conceptually sounds rotten.

    The butter/marg needs to go on while it's hot dammit. That's why you need the fluffy core. It stops the fat seeping all the way through so you get a firm backbone.

    Personally, I like it inbetween - the toast still needs to be quite hot, but not so hot that the margarine melts instantly and seeps through the bread. I usually get my bread out of the toaster and leave it for about 15-20 seconds to cool down to the correct temperature.

    It's a fine art, I tell you.

    Hot toast, melted flora marg on it, then peanut butter slapped on.

    It's the only way.
