Aussie Bikkies (Crackers) With Cheese and Onion

Total Time
Prep 2 mins
Cook 0 mins

Traditional Australian snack for when unexpected guests drop by. To be truly authentic the cheese must be the very cheapest brand available and the crackers a little stale. Use a good and strong fresh onion though so your guests don't know the difference.


  1. Slice cheese and onion.
  2. Place slice of onion on each cracker and top with a slice of cheese.

Mate, you are soooo funny - but the seriousness in the reviews is just as precious!!! five stars - not so much for the recipe as the memories and the chuckles this gave me! Thanx.... Good ole Aussie Humour - how I miss it - no one gets (understands) me here in the US!

My mum used to make this, but with pickled onions instead of fresh ones. I always knew when the end of the week was near and shopping day was nearing as these little beauties would appear. Oh the memories!!

I had not realized this was an Australian delicacy, I have eaten this in the US for years. I followed your directions, except that I was forced to use fresh crackers as that was all I had on hand. I thought it would be alright though because I was only making them for myself and not for company:) Seriously though, I sometimes eat this for lunch adding sliced tomato as well.
