How to eat Marmite: 4 easy, delicious ways

Hey! Guy from Midwinter Minis here. Now
I know what you’re thinking “wait, you paint little models on your channel, why are
you showing us how eat Marmite?” Good question. I recently did a collaboration
video with an American friend of mine and along with some models to paint I
sent Brent from Goobertown Hobbies some Marmite because… you know… thinly veiled
imperialism. Anyway, long story short, bless his heart, he committed this
terrible crime on my beloved brown gold. Now my first instinct was obviously to
alert the Queen, but I thought that the best course of action would be to show
all you newcomers to the world of Marmite how it’s done so hopefully you
can actually enjoy it if you ever get sent some, or feel a bit adventurous if
you visit the UK. So let’s start with the easiest and arguably best method:
Marmite on toast. Just three ingredients needed: bread, butter, and of course Marmite. Toast your bread however you want I prefer mine slightly browned with a
bit of give, but my girlfriend prefers it firm and golden brown. No giggling at the
back, thank you. Butter your toast, real butter and plenty of it… none of that low-fat vegetable oil nonsense. Finally a small amount of Marmite, evenly spread.
Enjoy with tea, coffee or freshly squeezed orange juice. For maximum
Britishness discuss the weather while you eat it. Recipe number two: super cheese on toast again just three ingredients needed:
bread, Marmite, and your preferred cheese no butter required for this recipe as
the fat from that melting cheese will provide all that oily moisture we need.
Lightly toast your bread, but stop short of when you’d usually call it done.
we’re going to toast it a little more in a minute so you don’t want to burn it.
spread a little Marmite straight onto your bread again, don’t go nuts, just a
small amount will do, and then load up with your favorite cheese. The most
popular choices are firm sharp tasting local cheeses like Cheddar, Double
Gloucester, Wensleydale and Red Leicester and yes we do name all our cheeses after
the towns they come from… good job they don’t make cheese in Fingringhoe.
Now pop your toast cheese side up under your grill or broiler and cook until the
cheese is nice and gooey. Again, when you take it out is up to you,
some prefer it just melted, others like it crispy and brown on top, A perfect
afternoon snack for lazy weekends. Enjoy with the glass of Port, a sherry, or a
cheeky whisky . If you’re a bit more adventurous with your cheese, or just a
pervert like me, swap out your Cheddar for a creamy mild blue cheese like St
Agur or Danish Blue.. now that tastes seriously naughty. Number three is super
quick and it’s not really a recipe more a recommendation: Marmite
stock. Marmite is a great way of adding a salty savory umami punch to any dish
that calls for stock or bullion. It’s also pretty practical because you won’t
be adding more moisture to your dish just the flavour. A teaspoon is usually
enough for a dish for two or three people and you can obviously add more if
you like. Marmite has a really unique almost meaty flavor even though it’s
totally vegan, and that makes it perfect for making wholesome vegetarian dishes a bit more robust and punchy. Pasta sauces, stews, soups, stir in a spoon of Marmite
and change your life for the better. Finally, here’s one hardly any British
people know about: Marmite and honey glaze. So let’s say you’ve made some
delicious fried chicken, or maybe slow cooked ribs, a roasted duck perhaps, or
something that isn’t a cute but delicious dead thing. You’re gonna want to glaze
that, right? I mean, you’re not a monster. Heat a pan and mix in one part of
Marmite to three parts of runny honey heat it until it starts to bubble and
slightly caramelise then toss your food in it and serve. Salty, savoury, sweet, tangy probably the best thing ever. All things considered. Now, I can almost
hear you asking the question from here. Yes, Marmite is pretty salty so if you’re on
a low-sodium diet my advice is.. honestly we’re all gonna die eventually, so you
might as well die of something this delicious. Go out with a bang, a mouth-watering salty Marmite bang. As I said at the start,
this isn’t a cooking channel, I paint miniatures so don’t go hitting that subscribe button if you’re looking for more food
videos you greedy little piglet. If you like pretty chill entertaining hobby and
craft videos though I’ve probably got you covered. So catch you next time maybe,
bye for now

  8. Ardmanuk says:

    Well done 👍 no more burnt mouths for our over seas friends 😁

  9. Vengeance161 says:

    I’m absolutely shocked you didn’t include marmite on cream crackers! What would the Queen think!

  10. Danielle Goldman says:

    How do you make runny honey, do you just mix honey with glaze medium? Is Vallejo a good brand for that?

    Also can Vegemite serve as a replacement for Marmite?

  19. Holly Grieves says:

    No matter how thinly you spread it, it still tastes of Marmite. Eurgh =D:

  20. Zingbo says:

    I was watching a video yesterday that was explaining how dislikes are just as good for a video as likes when it comes to The Algorithm. I have a bunch that this will probably be a good thing when it comes to Marmite advocacy videos.

  21. Big Boz says:

    Vegimite > Marmite

  22. David Myers says:

    I love this channel.
    If they want to make something they do no fuss about it.

  23. I'm a hexagon (carefully modulated scream) says:

    Ugh, marmite the food of cultists.

    Edit: throw some chocolate into that spaghetti for the ultimate depth of taste.

  24. wolfwinddh says:

  25. lyle torok says:

    Dammit , why is our toaster , already packed away to move house now i have the Marmunchies

    Optional for extra British bonus points , eschew the bread for a crumpet , and follow the method described for toast or cheese and marmite toast.

  26. Wayne Catlin says:


  27. Ben Rafferty says:

    Sending him Marmite and then making this video is possibly the most English thing that anyone has ever done, I love it.

  28. Ben Rafferty says:

    Also, new music?

  29. William Stephens says:

    WTF is marmite??? I stopped Eating/ fingering hoe once I got married… JS’in

  30. Morgan H says:

    It should be law for people to watch this video before eating Marmite for their first time.

  31. Russell Young says:

    A public service announcement brought to you by Midwinter Minis.

    Love this!

  32. Teretrix Wargaming says:

    The British army was sent, gobber Is now in prison.

  33. Red Rose Wargaming says:

    Marmite is amazing, but why would you dilute it with dairy… This is sacrilege. Gonna have to call Sir Fompington Clomperton of the Order of the Marmite Ethics Light Brigade and get him to address this crime

  34. Red Rose Wargaming says:

    Also, you can get reduced salt marmite 🙂 I get it for my mum and it tastes fine 🙂

  35. #OUTLANDISH says:

    I can take or leave Marmite, not so polarising

  36. Brother Mandalore says:

    Reported for shit taste.

  37. PirateChris says:

    The most truly horrifying Halloween video I've seen this weekend…. ugh, marmite.

  38. Paul Brewer says:

    Soooo! What you are saying is If you like Primaris space marines you……..
    Oh it is just about eating marmite, got it sorry.

  39. pop burnsy says:

    What comes from Fingringhoe?

  40. Will Dunn says:

    Being sophisticated Australians we have perfected your Marmite, which was was on the right track we will admit.

    However we discovered the secret ingredient, the yeast waste from making beer.

    😫👌 Vegemite; perfection!

  41. Wolfgangtheseal says:

    a similar idea to idea 4, but melt some marmite with butter in a microwave, roasts some small cubed potatoes and 5-10 minutes before the end drizzle you marmite butter mix over them, taste fantastic

  42. Ironclad Lad says:

    British heretics using thin amounts of yeast extract, the australian way is to apply with a spoon.

  43. Nikos says:

    A great video!! Just great!!

  44. WarWithReality says:

    Marmite is disgusting. I bet my friend to taste a spoonful and he ended up throwing up.

  45. Will Dunn says:

    You should name the Moon for the Batrep Martmite Alpha!

    Er… Beta I mean, yes Beta.

  46. Magnus Mørkøre Johannesen says:

    I'm guessing a lot of the naysayers come from across the pond? Everything over there is far too sweet; even their bread is like eating cake D:

  47. PeppermintShore says:

    Marmite addict here. Think hot toast, lots of butter and good thick layer or Marmite. I have it about the thickness of american in your video. Also I have it with a good sweet cup of tea. if the toast goes cold before i get a chance to butter it then something else goes on it.

    Also there is now a low salt option. look for the blue label rather than the yellow.

  48. Reise Bus says:

    Like a fat guy from france already said in the year 50b.c.: "these britons are crazy!"

  49. Conor Flanagan says:

    Probably a stupid question, but does marmite taste like anything? Like could you compare its taste to something else? I've never tried it and am too scared to do so 😄

  50. J says:

    Marmite sounds like a thick, spreadable soy sauce.

  51. Volker Herten says:

    Best video on the channel 😂

  52. geronimo8159 says:

    That cheddar could have used some nuln oil to really bring out the texture, didn't you learn anything?

  53. Sergio LP says:

    How is possible ive never tried Marmite eveen do i had visit UK for 5 times

  54. DrTuckles says:

    I wouldn't say no to a tea video…

  55. Thomas Frewer says:

    Remember what happened to Adam Ragusea… one cooking video and that's all we've seen from him since.

  56. Nelson Baietti says:

    lol 😄

  57. Caleb Billing says:

    So yeah, completely unrelated question- what's your opinion of the new Warriors of Ch- I mean, Slaves to Darkness models? I know you don't really do AoS on this channel, but… it's Warriors of Chaos we're talking here, they're important to everyone.

  58. Joe Flitton says:

    Instructions not clear, now my deathwatch models are sticky.

  59. hugues aufrais says:

    It would be easier to teach me how to paint eyes on a mini with a paintroll! #so french#betterdeadthanmarmited

  60. Goat Man says:

    You're the kind of person who probably eats pineapple on pizza, you digust me
    (No hate really, i just hate marmite)

  61. Kultek Discordia says:

    I’m concerned it’s not vegemite. But I’ll let you off the hook because of that England thing.

  62. asdasd9174 says:

    I'm just here to watch your subscriptions tank back down to the three or four hundred deviants that like marmite, then we will take names and round up you degenerates once and for all.

  63. Ataerus says:

    I'm going to have to try some marmite now, aren't I? Is this how Scotland dies? From yeast extract?

  64. Anna Elizabeth says:


  65. James Henderson says:

    Marmite is the work of the devil but I'll let you off just coz of the liberation of Jersey mug

  66. Alfred Manley says:

    I salute you, you glorious herald

  67. Euan Smith says:

    Marmite: one thin coat.

    I tend to put down a blob of butter on to the hot toast, so it starts to melt a little. Then I take a bit of Marmite and mix it in to the butter to produce an even spread. I then smooth this across the surface of the toast. This way you can avoid those startling taste explosions you can get when taking a bite of pure Marmite.

    Remember, kids, you can't say "Marmite" without saying "Mmmmmm-Cultural-Imperialism!"

  68. Jsh Pk says:

    My grocery store here in NC has Marmite, I have become a fan!

  69. Luke McDonladson says:

    Marmite .. "You Sick Bastards" .. nobody likes Marmite !!! are you being held hostage by the league of Marmite men? .. why are they making you say such horrible things .. Vegemite is King .. Accept no Substitutes 🤣😂😁

  70. james johnson says:

    Was a good channel just got worse n worse unsubbed

  71. DrawnSteelHero says:

    Couple of others:

    Similar to the stock, fat-free chips. Cut your potatoes into chips and part-boil them for about 20 minutes with a couple of teaspoons of Marmite in the water. Then drain the water, spread them onto a tray, and put them in the oven till they're your preferred level of brown. Great guilt-free chips, with a hint of that not-meaty flavour.

    Second, put a teaspoon of Marmite into a mug and fill with boiling water and stir. That's the recipe. A lovely savoury drink, especially good for that last mug before bed. I also tend to favour it when I'm feeling ill…

    EDIT: Just remembered my twist on Marmite on toast; use cream cheese instead of butter. 😉

  72. Beyond Hope says:

    Sorry Midwinter Minis, this is the first of your videos that I almost downvoted. There is literally NO delicious way of eating Marmite. And the only easy thing to do with it is throw it in the bin 😀

  73. Angry Scotsman says:

    I have no intention of eating that yeast extract from hell

  74. Murth says:

    I feel uncomfortable because of how wholesome your videos are, Midwinter Minis

  75. Cup of Tea says:

    There is a fifth way….
    Marmite on top of Peanut Butter on toast.
    Try it smooth or nutty

  76. Daniel Klinglesmith V says:

    IDK guy, looks like basing paste to me… now that would be a fun video. Mix in some pva glue and base a mini with it.

  77. They Call Me Piccolo says:

    By far the most helpful video you have made

  78. Thomas Hawkins says:

    Best video ever. I used to hate Marmite, until I met my partner. She used to sit on the sofa eating marmite with a tea spoon!! I gave it a few more tries and now I love it. It is especially amazing when you are ill or have a cold.
    Lovely salty snack 🙂

  79. Julian L says:

    Nope nope nope

  80. NallenTV says:

    I'm going to try that cheese on toast but it's going to take something special to replace Worcestershire sauce

  81. Stephen Spackman says:

    You and you alone have a coherent plan to restore us to our former glory! My hat is utterly off to you.

  82. Cody - says:

    So Marmite with some Vallejo medium, water, and a little Vellejo brown would make a nice leather color no?

  83. chris clarkson says:

    Marmite AND a Lurpak butter dish… true class

  84. V the Snail says:

    Why did a video about different ways of preparing marmite get weirdly existential towards the end?

  85. Stephen Baugh says:

  95. James Cretchley says:

    Marmite, vegimite and Bovril all have very strong tastes that need diluting to enjoy properly. otherwise, it's like getting punched in the mouth

  96. Grey Sky says:



  97. John Suarez says:
