Foods you can spread on wet cardboard to make it taste great
As I was going through the comments on an earlier post, I came across this intriguing one by Cleatus:
Re: JM's Granny Early's Sour Cream Cookies (sounds great, BTW): There are only a few food substances like sour cream, but it's true: you can spread it on old wet cardboard and it'll taste great. Soy sauce is another one. Chocolate, of course is another. Almond paste. Brie. Nominations?
Hal nominated garlic butter, and Joyce W. came up with grilling (which I'm not sure counts) and Nutella. ...
What interests me is that my "food you can dip/spread/pour on wet cardboard and it will taste great" isn't any of these.
Well, maybe garlic butter.
But if I can only have one, I would say brown butter. When I was going through my high-calorie breakfast phase I would make waffles every morning and eat them with brown butter, real maple syrup and crisp bacon.
Its nutty brown butteryness is equally good on vegetables, meat, fish, popcorn, frosting and I don't know what all.
