Deliciously crisp and buttery Melba Toast, served hot with a tangy or cheesy dip, is perhaps the best thing you can have with tea! While this is actually easy to prepare, you need to take care of a few things to make sure you get it right the first time. Cut the edges of the bread slices soon after they are toasted with a sharp bread knife. If you let the bread get cold, it will be tough to chop off the edges. Likewise, when baking the cut slices with butter, keep checking the oven as these slices are thin and might get burnt fast.
