Thanks for posting a recipe suitable for those who might be cooking for one, an often overlooked demographic. For people like me catering for two, it's possible to increase the serving by increasing the amount of toast. You will need more butter and Marmite, too.

This looks great but as a hardworking unemployed layabout, I don't have time for complicated recipes like this after a long day in the pub/down the bookies. Does anyone know if this is available as a ready-meal in any of the supermarkets?

I've been using a fork to spread the butter but the toasted bread seams to break up, is there a special kitchen implement to spread butter?

I'm going to give it a go..... but I'm a bit stuck. Instructions on how to use the toaster needed! :\

"Spread the marmite on the toast" WITH WHAT!?

It sticks to my fingers more than the bread and my spatula doesn't fit in the jar!

Trying to cut down carbs, so I tried this recipe without the toast. (omit steps 1 & 3.) A little messy to eat, but still delicious

This is a great little recipe, and so versatile! I had a little trouble with the first step as I don't own a toaster, but this was easily overcome by starting a small campfire of the remaining bread in the packet, and popping my two slices under the oven grill.

Thanks Benno!

I don't have a toaster but I'm dying to find out what this culinary classic tastes like. Does anyone know if I'll do myself any harm if I use raw bread?

This is one of my personal favorites! The assemblage of this dish only took about 10 minutes despite drilling a hole in the middle of the bread with my rock-solid unsalted butter. However it later turned out that the hole in the middle is the perfect vehicle for the bay leaf. Couldn't be more please with the outcome, hope you post something similar with marmelade and basil.

For an Australian twist on this recipe you can substitute the Marmite with Vegemite and the bay leaf with Eucalyptus. Cut the bread into boomerang shapes and place on the BBQ. For that authentic Australian style, make sure you flip your BBQ upside down after lighting it.

I loved this, but my husband absolutely hated it! Oh well. Anyone know if this recipe is suitable for freezing?

I made this recipe for the first time last night. I found that I neither loved it nor hated it but felt rather indifferent to it.

I shall be writing to the Global Intellectual Property authorities as this was my idea many years ago. How dare you share with the world my idea and pass off as yours.

I hope you feel guilty!

Your recipe has some gaping holes. Like for instance for the Marmite to really "hug" the toast propoerly it needs direction.

In no way have you mentioned the angle of the knife plus is the toast steaming when applied or in your description (none)

You are a thief and I hope you are caught be the proper people and given the full treatment.

You are a lier. You ar a cheat. Money too tight to mention....

You know, better get a good lawyer.

I substituted duck breast for the toast, and an orange and cranberry reduction for the marmite. I'd recommend serving with a confit of pears and roasted potatoes with rock salt in goose fat. The bay leaf added a degree of sophistication to what is otherwise a pretty cheap, quick, and tawdry meal. I tied my bay leafs into a sort of Fleur de Lys shape, the kids loved it.

Ah thank goodness for this! I kept buttering the toaster and putting marmite on the kitchen side! My toast is finally no longer tasteless :)

Tried this recipe and it really works. if you're struggling for a bay leaf a sprig of parsley works really well! Will definately by using this recipe again and again.

I'm not keen on turkey and was looking for an alternate for Christmas Day and I think this is it. The glistening brown sheen of the marmite over the glossy butter, on top of the crispy bread. The crunchiness of the bread is just great and the butter compliments the saltiness of the Marmite.
I think we will start on the day with that seventies classic, Prawn Cocktail (crisps of course) and finish with Butterscotch Angel Delight, made the way my Mum did (lumpy). All washed down with a glass of Buckfast. Can't wait.

I must be doing something wrong. I used the marmite straight out the jar but it tasted absolutely disgusting! Are you supposed to cookl it first or something. I also nearly broke my teeth on the bayleaf. Won't be trying this one again in a hurry.
