I went for a less fattening version of this and removed the butter and using 75% less marmite. Tasted absolutely delicious with a bit of rocket (in substitute of bay leaf) but felt that that bit more than 2 slices of bread was needed.

Can anyone, Delia perhaps, advise upon where I might obtain a nice white plate like the one in the picture?

Can you tell if the marmite has gone off? Is it like wine?

I cooked this meal for my wife and children three weeks ago and so disgusted was she with my efforts she subsequently left me. Since then, as word has spread throughout the local community I have become a social pariah. People cross the street just to spit on me. Even the cat has buggered off. To say I wasn't entirely pleased with the results is an understatement. I can only offer a rating of 3.5/5

I sent this amazing recipe to my American cousin who wanted to sample the very best of traditional British cuisine. However, she was very apprehensive about quantities, as they measure everything in cups over there. I said I thought a slice of bread might be about a cup, but she wanted to be sure. By the time she had squished the bread into a cup and removed it again it was in no condition to be toasted (or 'broiled' as she calls this process). Still, since she had been proposing to substitute something called 'Spicee Cheezorama Dairy-style Spread' for the Marmite, perhaps it was all for the best...

As I'm on quite a strict diet I thought I'd try a more healthy alternative - so I ditched the toaster and steamed the bread instead! I also decided to use some lovely rapseed oil instead of butter. I looked for some reduced salt Marmite - but I couldn't seem to find it anywhere (anyone got any suggestions?). Why didn't I replace the bread with something far healthier (and tastier!) like rice crackers? Well, I wanted to try and stay as true as I could to the original recipe! Anyway - the result, needless to say, was delicious!!

I tried it on a french baguette now I have been branded as pro European and the UKIP have threaten to arrest me if they gain power! thanks marmite!

asg24 - Traditional wine to go with this dish would be a glass of Buckfast. But if that is too heavy for you taste and you'd like something lighter Lambrini would work fine as well.

Frustrating. I used a microwave instead of a toaster. It didn't work. Sorry, but not all of us are lucky enough to have specialist kitchen equipment on hand. I'm certainly not going to go out and buy a toaster for one recipe.
