National Melba Toast Day
#NationalMelbaToastDay - Melba toast is a dry, crisp and thinly sliced toast, often served with soup and salad or topped with various foods.


Melba toast is made by lightly toasting slices of bread under a grill, on both sides. The resulting toast is then sliced laterally. The thin slices are then returned to the grill with the untoasted sides towards the heat source, resulting in toast half the normal thickness. Melba toast is also available commercially.
