Vegemite is an Australian spread first devised in 1922 by Australian Fred Walker. Made from brewer's yeast extract, vegemite is thick and very dark in color. Vegemite is also a very good source of Vitamin B. While people in Australia grow up eating vegemite, non-Australians often don't eat this particular food. However, if you want to give vegemite a try, a vegemite sandwich is a good place to start.
Things You'll Need
- Two slices of bread
- Sandwich extras (optional)
Use a knife to spread butter on two slices of bread. You can use any type of bread that you choose.
Spread a thin layer of vegemite on one of the buttered slices of bread. Try not to use too much vegemite, as it has a very strong flavor.
Add any extras to your vegemite sandwich that you desire. Some people add cheese and others add honey. You can also add peanut butter or eat a vegemite sandwich with vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes and onions.
Close the vegemite sandwich with the other piece of buttered bread. Be sure to put the buttered side down.
Tips & Warnings
- Toast the bread if you prefer.
- Vegemite is an acquired taste. Don't be put off if you don't love vegemite right from the start.
- In the United States, you can purchase vegemite through online retailers, at specialty grocery stores or in the international foods section of most larger grocery stores.
- Vegemite is high in sodium. Don't eat vegemite sandwiches too often, especially if you are watching your salt intake.
