Cook’s tip
To make Melba toast, grill 4 slices of white (or brown) bread on both sides.
Trim the crusts and very carefully cut each slice of toast in half horizontally.
Cut the bread in half diagonally and pop back under the grill until toasted and
crisp. Watch the toast as this doesn’t take very long!
