There's nothing easier than some sort of paste spread on bread, crackers, fruit,...or eaten straight from the jar.
(Jam is not counted as a spread, it needs a whole new poll to determine which jam is your fave)

Oooh! Wickedly good choices -- couldn't make this easy for us, could you? Very Happy Trying to select a favorite was fun, while munching on toast (with plain butter) and drinking my cafe au lait this morning at breakfast. But no, my vote was not for plain butter.

Don't know that I have a favorite spread but this seems like a good enough spot to say I bought myself a butter "bell" -- one of those earthenware thingies that holds butter upside down in a crock of water to keep it at a spreadable consistency. It's terrific!

I've eyed them in catalogues at $20 (US) and up. When I saw one for $10 at a Whole Foods market, I snatched it up and we're really enjoying it by effortlessly spreading butter on freshly baked bread. Yum! Wink

plain butter goes under some of the others, doesn't it?? Butter and Nutella, butter and peanutbutter...I consider 'butter' as a nice little sheet for what comes on top of the bread...so now what to vote?!?!? Very Happy

Sometimes butter can be anything but plain.
You got the Butter with sea salt, with Sel de Guérande or Fleur de Sel which has a taste of iode which is delicious. But it's true that some shameful combinations such as toasted brioche+butter+PB+nutella are just as good.
Choices, choices...

That was hard! I picked Nutella, but it was only because I couldn't choose from among the likes of hummus and tapenade. I love them too much.

I'm probably the only one voting for chestnut spread....guess i'm so captivated by it because it's so hard for me to find & is something I associate with being in Paris.....nutella is a co-first choice

I cast my vote for tapenade, being a bit of a fixation of mine. While living in Australia I was introduced to the "glory" of vegemite! Took a bit of getting used to but I ended up quite liking that savoury spread----really good on English muffins mixed with a bit of peanut butter> (Is that sacrilege??)

Agree that we need a new poll for jam, jelly, and preserves. Maybe someone should begin a new thread. I don't even know the difference between jam, jelly, and preserves.

Last night I finished off my oatmeal (after it cooled and hardened and became the consistency of a cake) by topping it with a rasberry preserve (Smuckers) which was terrific. That's the first time in my life that I added a fruit preserve to my oats. Going to have to experiment further with this trend.
