Vegemite on Toast

"Vegemite is an Australian food icon, which can be consumed daily. It is a spread made mainly from concentrated yeast extract that is leftover from the beer brewing process, but that doesn't make it alcoholic."

  1. How clever of you to submit this as a recipe! Yum! I've loved vegemite since I was a kid (of course) but I have to admit that I spread about six times the amount you show - but then, I eat it by the spoonful (or off the spreading knife, lol).<br/>NO comparison with marmite or promite though, please! Neither are nearly as good! :D
  2. Whilst I was brought up on this breakfast (along with milo) I have found in later years - having lived in the Irish land of beer and guinness - that it is a fantastic hangover cure-all. It has the protein needed for energy, the B vitamins to perk you up (if only for a short time, but at least long enough to realise you haven't died and gone to hell) and its usually spread on carbs which will emit energy over the next couple of hours. Hallelujah vegemite!!
  3. OH MY GOD! Never ate Vegemite before today and I'm hooked after one bite. Did add some mild cheddar.
  4. Another favourite at our house is vegemite on toast with a fried egg on top - a great breakfast! Or buttered toast with a smear of vegemite and then avocado spread on top. Tomato slices, as others have said, on vegemite is great too - so many ways to enjoy!
  5. Vegemite is the best! Forget Marmite and Promite. The other way to enjoy vegemite on toast is to serve it as "soldiers: for dipping into soft boiled eggs.


  1. As others have commented I grew up eating vegemite on toast. Married a Canadian and moved to Vancouver where I am somewhat shocked to see I could purchase my breakfast staple in the local large chain grocery store. My favorite is vegemite on toast with mashed avocado (salt and pepper). My brother in law calls it vege-poison. A spoon full in a stew also adds another taste dimension.
