Marmite - Love it, Hate it or just plain not bothered?

Recommended Posts

On the word association thread Groovychook's latest 'answer' was Marmite with a sub that she isn't really bothered one way or 'tother! As someone who can eat it straight from the jar (tho its nicer dribbled over a plate of sprouts) I couldn't let that one go!!!

 

Sooooooo, where do you stand on Marmite? Any thoughts on Vegemite or Bovril?

Love, love love it!!! Haven't tried it on sprouts though ... will have to give that a go ...

My failsafe "recipe" for quick supper is marmite pasta (well, it's not really a recipe and credit has to go to Nigella, I'm afraid). Just mix some marmite (you need quite a bit, but probably best to just start with tiny bit to begin with) into cooked pasta and eat ... absolutely divine and now I'm very hungry!!!

Not bothered about Marmite, dislike vegemite and love Bovril :D OH loves vegemite, isn't bothered about Marmite and drinks Bovril once a year if feeling ill. We have all 3 options available in Portugal for guests :D They are the only thing we bring from the UK now, other than tea :D

Life without Marmite would not be worth living - ok, that's a bit of an exaggeration but I can't imagine not having a jar in the cupboard. Stirred into gravy or soup, spread on soldiers with boiled eggs, just on toast, under cheese in a sandwich, can you tell I'm a Marmite addict? I haven't tried it on sprouts though. :think:

Scrambled egg on toast is greatly enhanced by smothering the toast with Marmite (no butter) before piling on the egg!

Chunks of really strong Cheddar cheese benefit from a layer of Marmite as does goat's cheese :drool: Bovril is a no no.....tastes different to me but I know others who swear its better than Marmite and Vegemite is not a patch on the real thing!

Love love love Marmite! Especially Nigella style - mixed with a little bit of butter - on Spaghetti! :lol:

 

Like Bovril, but always forget it exists - thank you for reminding me.

 

Not sure I'e even tasted Vegemite, not sure if I want to !
