In the 60s, one of the savoury courses to finish Dinner was Croute Baron. Devils on horseback are well documented, but what was Croute Baron?

Chief Steward speak. Presumably it was something wrapped in pastry. Personally, I'm still trying to get my head round Potage a la Merde.

Croute Baron - piece of buttered toast dressed with sliced mushrooms, bacon and marrow, seasoned with a pinch of cayenne
served hot from under the grill.

Thanks for that info. On an RMS Sylvania menu 1957! Those were the days for greedy boys. Cholesterol hadn't been a problem.

The term is actually Croute a la Baron If You look at the link below it shows menus from 4 of the old passenger ships that reference the dish.
