If it's toast for breakfast, I use real butter and a fruit jam. If it's a sandwich, I use Miracle Whip and stone ground mustard.

Sometimes I mix my mayo with a small amount of mustard or horseradish or even both, and that goes on the top of my meaty cold-cuts. It probably would taste good spreaded directly on the bread.
Mayo alone doesn't have much taste, but my fav - the Japanese Kewpie is a bit tangy, though.

I had my British friends over for a luncheon of sandwiches and soup. While I made their sandwiches I asked if anyone had any dietary restrictions. The wife said don't put butter on her hubby's sandwich because he's watching his LDL I stopped and thought to myself, I've never ever put butter on a sandwich. Ever since then, I will put butter on my own sandwiches.

This is a small but nice addition, I've discovered. Even better than butter alone, add black olives on a sandwich. It changes the game. Butter and black olives as condiments bumps it up to the point that you will be making your own sandwiches and anticipating the next one.

IMO

Ms. Elnina,
Ever had a Rueben sandwich?
They are delicious!
Take seeded rye bread, and a bit of olive or grapeseed oil, heated in skillet. Toast both sides of two slices.
Set aside.
Meanwhile, make the dressing, or sandwich spread. Mayonnaise, with a dash of ketchup, enough to turn it pink. Add diced sour pickles, and spread each slice of bread.
In same skillet, add sauerkraut, corn beef, heat until sizzling. Top with a slice of swiss, cover to let swiss cheese melt. Remove and add to bread. Serve with a koscher dill. Slice in half and enjoy.

In Britain and Ireland, sandwiches have butter on them.

BTW: The origins of the humble sandwich supposedly lie with John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, in the 1700s. Poor old John was too busy gambling to eat a proper meal so would ask his servants to pop his roast dinner between two slices of bread. For someone who became an earl at age ten, that’s some pretty forward thinking – and to say the sandwich has taken off is probably the understatement of the century.

Most Europeans use Butter or Margarine, although I suppose it's what you are brought up with.

It's also normal to put butter on scones, toast, crumpets etc in Britain.

the things you learn.....around the world and a few states over...

butter on bread was a "side" growing up....both were cheap.....

and growing up...the food scientists back then said ...real butter will kill you but this shed spread margarine.....is ok.. (in the 70's) I love butter/margarine......we used tons of it on popcorn on Saturday nights...popcorn was a treat

after high school I worked in a slaughterhouse and on a commercial fishing boat and had a small.... apartment.... one of my favs to cook was grilled cheese sandwiches....because I could buy 2 day old bread at the bread thrift store.... a bucket of margarine was cheap and the cheap cheese or whatever it is... wasn't much...…..id butter the outside of the bread and fry up the sandwiches...….sometimes having 4-5 sandwiches...might be all I ate for the day

and to bring lunches...out on the boat or in the barn.....id sometimes bring buttered bread and that was it...

French toast was my other fav to cook because that was so cheap to make......but if I didn't have any syrup id put butter on ..

I only buy real butter today ….. and love the flavor...

just the other day I drove by a place I use to park my car (and sleep in it between jobs......after the slaughterhouse job..and clean up.....id drive to the coast and would have to get up by 3-4 am for the fishing job) but id have a loaf of bread and butter/margarine in the car...lol )

I mostly use mayo unless it's an Italian sub then it's a little olive oil & vinegar. I only use butter on grilled cheese.
