Melba toast is a preparation of daintily cut bread slices, buttered and crisped to perfection. This crispy snack can be prepared a day in advance and stored in an air-tight container to save time in the morning. The suggested dip, made of cheese spread and curds, is not only tasty but also very easy and quick to prepare. Together, the Melba Toast with Creamy Cheese Dip is a convenient and delicious snack to pack in the tiffin box. To ensure that they remain fresh and flavourful for a few hours, make sure you pack them in separate containers so that the moisture of the dip does not make the toast soggy. Also pack some Murukus ( Tiffin Treats for Kids ) in another tiffin for a perfect short break combo.
