SAVOURY TU0U8t. Before dealing with the varlone kinds of ervoury touast, we meet dwell a little upon the aoural tonstirg of the bread, upon wblab a good deal of too exoelle'oe of our dish depeo de Uetlespe peallly Isated to the oontrary to the reolpo, the alloe of bread Upon whblh any savoury oomposition is to be plaoed should be .do;bately fried in , butter till of a golden colour. This sto preferable to toasting it In the ordinary manner. Ordinarily toasted bread, if it is kept waiting at all, becomes spongy or a?dden, and soon loses its oriepeese. Another point to be borno in mind Is that it the savoury toast must be served very hot. It may be kept h't in the oven, but it is far better when soot to table the moment it has been fl ished The cooa must have every. ,, thiog ready, but must not aa:ually complete the making of the toast till it Is wanted.
