Foodie divides opinion by saying bread is important part of roast dinner
Is it weird to have bread with roast dinners?
It’s a question that divided Reddit over the weekend – with many saying they uses slices to mop up leftover gravy.
A Brit asked: “Do you eat bread and gravy after a Sunday roast or is it just a weird thing that my family does?
“Since I was little, I’ve always finished off a Sunday roast with a piece of bread in the gravy.
“I know my parents grew up in fairly low-income families so bulking up a meal with bread was regularly practiced in their household.
“I’m just wondering if anyone else was brought up to eat this too.”
The question divided Redditors – with some saying they always have bread with their Sunday lunch too.
One commenter remarked: “Totally normal, very common for folk to do that.”
Another said: “North West, and if it’s edible it can be paired with bread.”
A third wrote: “I’m from the south and my dad always did this.”
Another said: “It’s the best part of the meal. Bread's got to be buttered though.”
And a fifth added: “From Surrey and we always did this, along with bread and butter on the side of most meals.
“Also we had the occasional bedtime snack of dipping bread into a jug of gravy.
“I think it's more to do with having parents born just after WW2 and being raised with rationing/not a great amount of food.”
While many said they use bread to mop up gravy, others said they prefer to use Yorkshire puddings to do the job.
One wrote: “I mean, I'd just Yorkshire pudding the f**k out of it usually.”
Another said: “That seems weird to me. This is what Yorkshire puddings are for.
“They are way more delicious I think.
“The idea that they are only for with beef is a mistake I think too.
“Beef is the best Sunday roast, and they are best with beef, but I still have them with other roasts (when I don't have beef).”
And a third added: “Sounds a little crazier than dipping the left-over Yorkshires but you do you.”
