Tongue toast is a traditional open sandwich prepared with sauteed beef tongue and scrambled eggs. It is seasoned to taste with black pepper and onions. The tongue was sometimes served on buttered toast with a poached egg instead of a scrambled one. While it was primarily prepared as a dish for breakfast, it was also eaten for lunch and dinner.
A variant served for breakfast involved the use of boiled, smoked beef tongue, cream, scrambled egg, and seasoned to taste with nutmeg, pepper, chopped parsley, and chopped green peppers. A modern variant involved the use of reindeer tongue instead of beef tongue.
Tongue toast was also served as an hors d'oeuvre, prepared in a similar fashion to a French toast preparation, as a star-shaped appetizer stamped out of buttered toast with mustard butter added to it.
