Prep Time

"Vegemite is an Australian icon, enjoyed on toast by most Aussie's for breakfast. Vegemite a dark brown Australian food paste made from leftover brewers' yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives. For the ultimate Toast and Veggie experience you want to start with toast that’s nice and hot and straight from the toaster. For those new to Vegemite it is best not to spread it thick like jam or peanut butter, it is far better to sample it (like a fine wine!) first with a light smearing of Vegemite."

Step 1

Toast bread in the toaster. For the ultimate Vegemite experience, the toast must be hot.

Step 2

Smear butter onto the hot, toasted bread. Don't be shy now with the butter, in my opinion a good lather of butter is better! Butter will melt a little but that's fine, all the better for the Vegemite topping.

Step 3

Take a small dollop of Vegemite (or more) and smear it over the melted butter.

Step 4

Tuck into the Vegemite toast whilst hot!

Step 5

NOTE: For anyone feeling adventurous, a great Vegemite recipe is Vegemite toast with avocado and/or melted cheese. Once the toast is buttered with Vegemite, add slices of avocado, or dress it up with cheese (I use and prefer cheddar) place under the grill until the cheese melts and bubbles.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



A classic Aussie snack breakfast love it though I prefer wholegrain/wholemeal toast. Thanks Tisme for posting.
