    Mille®'s Note:

    Homemade Melba toast has the edge on the bought packaged variety. It is nicest served while still a little warm, in a basket or on a napkin-lined plate. If it is made a short time ahead, store it in an airtight container, then refresh it for a short time in the oven.

    Melba Toast

    • 8 slices white bread

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the broiler to high and toast the bread lightly on both sides.
    2. 2
      Cut off the crusts and then, holding the toast flat, slide a sharp knife between the toasted edges to split the bread so that you now have 8 slices that are toasted only on one side.
    3. 3
      Cut each piece into 4 triangles, and then toast under the broiler, untoasted sides uppermost, until golden and the edges curl.
    4. 4
      Serve warm with soup.
    5. 5
      Alternatively, make Melba toast earlier in the day, and warm for a short time in the oven at 170ºC/ 325ºF/ Gas Mark 3 before serving.

      This is such an easy make and always gets rave reviews. It is really good with appetizers such as Smoked Salmon Timbales ( No Cook). I have uploaded a sequence of pics showing the steps - you can see how easy it is! Use a good quality bread, sliced by the bakery (thin, if they can do that, or medium is okay, but not thick). I usually do the final toasting in the oven, so they are completely dry; that way the toast will keep for several days in an airtight container.
