About the Holiday

National Melba Toast Day celebrates these crunchy thin cracker-like breads. It was on this day in 1897 that famed chef Auguste Escoffier coined the term. At the time Australian opera singer Nellie Melba was ill and the only thing she could eat was this kind of toast he named Melba Toast. Melba toast is basically thinly sliced bread or baguettes, ends removed, buttered, seasoned, and baked. If you cube the bread it will be croutons. You can eat Melba Toast plain or with a topping like cream cheese, pepper jelly, tuna or chicken salad, crab spread, bruschetta, etc.
