Vegemite on Buttered Toast
This is how you eat Vegemite. Sorry to anyone who thought you could eat a spoonful straight from the jar because that's what Mary Kate and Ashley did in Our Lips Are Sealed (that was 100% Nutella anyways) because that's just nonsense. It's very salty and yeasty and best eaten sparingly. The real secret Aussie hack for Vegemite toast is to add some slices of ripe avocado or a freshly poached egg. YUMMM.
Giant Cheese & Vegemite Scroll!
Because I'm obsessed with either tiny or gigantic things, I decided this Australia Day I would try and make a giant cheese and Vegemite scroll. It would be ideal for when you don't know exactly how many people you will be feeding. There are plenty of recipes out there for cheese and Vegemite scrolls but most use self raising flour while I wanted to use yeast as I wanted it more bready than cakey. I also wasn't as taken with the idea of straight Vegemite and cheese and wanted to use Vegemite…
Where did Vegemite Originate? In Australia of Course
Vegemite is Australia's most popular spread. Made mainly from Brewers Yeast, it was invented in 1922 and in October 2008 celebrated the making of it 1 billionth jar. Vegemite even got a mention in "Down Under" by Men at Work
