Last week, I ate a Butter Pie for the first time.
I thought it was amazing, I even said I regretted not having tried one earlier after living in the county for three years.
But with the Butter Pie came an endless amount of comments, on Twitter and Facebook, with a tonne of recommendations on how to properly eat and enjoy one. I was unaware the pie could be any better, but according to our readers, they can.

I ordered the pies and ate them all within 12 hours.
So, here you have it, the Lancashire Butter Pie tried and tested in the five most popular ways - according to users on Twitter and Facebook.
For the record, for my first butter pie ever, I admit I was tame on my eating process. I didn't want to taint my experience with any of the following.
With brown sauce
After collecting the pies, my grand idea of testing all these recommendations hit me like a brick. I lay them out in front of me, the only person set to consume the pies, and decided to start easy.
Helen Thornley recommended this one, writing: "Butter pie with brown sauce".
Gwyn Love recommended adding "extra butter" alongside the brown sauce, but to be honest, I didn't have the courage.
I think those who swear by the Butter Pie and Brown Sauce combo should push the boat a bit, live a little, what do you have to lose?
Brown sauce, hot sauce and mayo
On the note of living a little, here's one that taught me that when it comes to butter pies, you have absolutely nothing to lose.
After a slight miscommunication on Whatsapp, I was under the impression that the combination of brown sauce, hot sauce and mayo was both different and popular.
Turns out, its really just absurd and, in the words of my own boss, "I don't think anyone does this."
But it was too late. I had already tipped the sauces on top and had no choice but to go forward.
Honestly, it wasn't world-ending - but as someone with a spice tolerance of a chicken korma it did deem my second pie inedible.
I've written about what I'd do, so today I'll consider what I'd do if I were an inventor.
Not this. I definitely wouldn't do this.
My third recommendation was from Matthew Nightingale on Twitter.
He said: "I have mine with chutney on top."
When I quizzed him on what type of chutney (there is a lot) he said "Major Grey's Mango Chutney would be my choice."
Bingo! But, when I stalked the sauce aisle of Sainsbury's, I could find no regiment under the name of Major Grey, so I got Sainsbury's own brand.
I think that there are two types of people when it comes to Mango Chutney. The first are the Mango Chutney lovers, those who can dip whatever they like in the jam and feel happy about it. The second is those who don't mind dipping a poppadom in it now and again. I consider myself the second option.
It was fine, but if I'm totally honest, while I appreciate your recommendation Mr Nightingale, it was just a bit boring. Each to their own though, as you were.
With bread and butter
Also in the land of Twitter was a recommendation given to me by a user called Plot144.
Plot144 said the Butter Pie is "an absolute thing of beauty" and recommended: "Next time you try it with a slice of bread and butter - you are going to love it!!"
Little did Plot144 know, but I too had a plot to eat a Butter Pie just three days later in between two slices of bread and butter- I call myself Plot1 for a reason.
My Butter Pie sandwich made for Friday morning's breakfast.
By Friday morning, I would have said I would be happy to never see a Butter Pie again, by the way. My stomach was so hard I thought I was going to fall into a butter river and be drawn into a pipe that shot me to Greenhalgh's Butter Pie room.
It was nice, I can see why people might do it, but it seems a bit excessive. I have no interest in how many carbs were in that sandwich, I will never speak of it again.
Grated cheese, chips and gravy
I wish I could explain how happy I am to be at the last recommendation on this list. I would like to thank my mum and my dad, my supportive partner and encouraging colleagues - thank you all.
The final recommendation was from Simon Bentley on Facebook. He said: "Butter pie topped with grated Lancashire cheese, with chips and gravy was my favourite school dinner."
Simon added that it sounded "minging" but it was actually chef-kiss worthy.
I grated a lot of cheese, cooked some chips and stirred some gravy. What I would like to say to Simon is never, ever think your food recommendations are "minging" ever again.
This combination was the best out of the five, easily.
I mean, it makes sense doesn't it? Add a portion of peas and you've basically got pub grub. But I suppose the addition of chips (potato) onto an already potato-based pie is a bit much.
For now, my affair with Butter Pies is going to have to an end though. The thought of those beautiful things coming anywhere near me for at least a month is making me feel sick. Don't even dare to come near me with another recommendation.
