Who doesn't love a thick slice of warm toast? Hot and dripping with butter, served with a warm cup of tea. A humble breakfast that's undeniably hard to resist. Apart from the gloriously familiar and warming aromas wafting from a well-used toaster, what make this simple snack so satisfying? It comes down to science.

Exposure to heat in a toaster or under a grill revamps the taste and texture of bread (as a result of the Maillard reaction) to create something crunchy and comforting. The best part? The variety of ingredients you can put on a piece of toast is limitless, so you can never get bored of it.

We asked our Facebook followers what their favourite thing to put on toast was. We've chosen the top 10. Have a look...

1. Nanette Turner: 'honey and cinnamon'

2. Angela Walker Bennett: 'cheese, melted with a sprinkle of cayenne pepper'
