Egg and Vegemite Soldiers

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Tisme

I grew up with vegemite soldiers, my grandmother made them for my mum, my mum used to make them for me, and then I made them for my kids, and I guess it's just one of those things that will continue. I still love this recipe every now and then and so do my teenage kids and DH. Yes we are all Happy Little Vegemites here!!!! And of course it goes without saying the spread MUST be vegemite........NO alternatives !!!!

A wonderful Aussie twist on an old favorite grew up eating soft boiled eggs with buttered soldiers and thoroughly enjoyed the Aussie twist of using Vegemite. Thanks for the post
