This is really quite interesting.

I grew up in Scotland calling it the "heel" and that is what everybody I know called it. It's interesting that many Americans call it the same thing. You see, we are not two nations divided by a coomon language after all.

Yes, we all grew up calling it the heel. But today, the liberal cry babies would declare HEEL to be an inflammatory, insulting racist moniker that must be banned from use in our multicultural society.

We wouldn't want to make anyone feel "uncomfortable", now would we?

According to Webster, the description of a heel is "an inconsiderate or untrustworthy person". A scoundrel, rogue, rascal, reprobate, miscreant, beast, rat, louse, swine, snake, scumbag, scuzzball and last but not least stinker.

All very apt descriptions of a liberal, but not the much sought after end piece of a nice loaf of fresh out of the oven homemade bread. Which, by the way, is much more valuable then a liberal. :big grin:

Doc, aren't you glad you are the OP of this thread? LOL

The heel, otherwise known as what can I use for a hamburger when I am out of buns.

The heel. Crust is the browned edge of the slices of bread.

Heel is what we call it also. I've never heard it called anything else.

Cat, I did and Webster defines gab ion is as follows: a basket or cage filled with earth or rocks and used especially in building a support or abutment

Am I mistaken?

sorry I couldn't resist I ran across that word recently so now I am using it everywhere as a goof. Yes it is a basket of rocks. That's why I put the grinning green face. I apologize. Yeah I know I have a warped sense of humor.

Everything I've seen the end of bread is called the "heel." I suppose I'm also a "heel" for my "Gabion" goof?

My wife tried to tell me it was a joke. She always says I never listen. I be thinking she is right.

You got me. Enjoy the moment, my friend. Now the rest of us have learned a new word.

Now what do you call the first slice when you pull apart a 2 bun loaf. We call it "the kissing slice".
