    Default If you burn your toast, do you throw it out and start over, or eat it even though it's burnt?

    As I was throwing some burnt toast away today, I heard my mother's voice in my head from long ago and far away telling me I was being wasteful and had to eat the toast even though I burned it instead of putting fresh bread into the toaster to make new, unburnt toast.

    So what do you do?

    i eat it. unless its so hard it would hurt my teeth or something. throwing an entire item of food away feels weird.

    I used to try to eat it, but depending on the level of burntness it's usually not worth the terrible taste. Sometimes I feed pieces to my dog and have him do tricks for it, but usually I'll just throw it away.

    On the one hand, yeah, it's kind of wasteful, and generally I try not to waste food (e.g. ordering/making only what I'll eat). On the other hand, at least food is biodegradable.

    I grind it into a fine black paste and snort it. It's a great substitute for caffeine if you ask me.

    No way I'd eat burnt stuff. Since we live in a first-world country, throwing away burnt food is perfectly reasonable.

    My SLE brother keeps throwing away toast.

    We got a new toaster. I wanted a sandwich. I set it to the usual sandwich temperature and put the bread in. It came out too dark, so I made jelly toast with that bread.

    I'm avoidant. I don't even try for toast.

    it's easy

    1. lightly burnt: eat it
    2. moderately burnt: scrape off the surface, then eat it
    3. heavily burnt: throw it away

    ...and this is SO type related.

    If it's just over toasted (e.g. lightly burnt) then I eat it. Anything beyond that is garbage in my books. Just because other people are starving, doesn't mean I am. Also, the people who are starving STILL won't benefit from me eating or not-throwing-away my toast. I typically don't waste food, but it's not wasteful in my books to toss something that's barely edible.

    This is exactly, word for word, what I was going to write as soon as I've seen this thread title. It all depends.

    (How badly burnt <=> whether I deem it worth the time and effort of scraping off the black parts, that is.)

    The only things I can think of is forgetting about it or not being familiar with the toaster settings.

    Looks like someone grew up in a house with timed toasters.

    ^ Also, if you only make 1-2 toasts every time, you might be unaware of the fact that making more in already hot toaster requires lower setting (and learn this by burning the second batch the first time you try it). Unless you have one with more sophisticated settings than just time adjustment.

    Thanks for letting me know I didn't miss anything interesting, tut.

    You compost it, feed it to some plants after ~ 3 weeks of compost maintenance and wait a couple months for harvest; eat the tasty fruit.

    You'll capitalize on your original toast investment at least tenfold, feeding millions of microorganisms on the way. This way, everybody wins.

    Toast gets burnt here because one of my kids likes to turn the little dial on the toaster. The other one can't reach it or she'd probably stick a fork in it and kill herself or something. The primary job of the parent of a toddler is to keep the kid from killing herself.

    eat it, toss it and make more, toss it and don't bother making more, remove the burnt part(s), whatever depending on the degree and my mood (i'll eat it as long as it still seems edible)... wouldn't feed it to birds because apparently they can't digest it well and it can kill them if they eat too much bread. anyway i rarely ever use my toaster these days.

    It depends how burnt it is; if it's only blackened on some parts I usually just scrape it off with a butter knife
