Summary
Melba Toast is named after Dame Nellie Melba, the stage name of Australian opera singer Helen Porter Mitchell.

Melba toasts are very thin, dry pieces of toasted bread that are usually served with pate, but can also be used as the base for canapes.

It is named after Dame Nellie Melba. Its name is thought to date from 1897 when the singer was very ill and it became a staple of her diet.
