What is Throwback Thursday? How does it work, you might ask? I get to choose a blog post from the past (either a few days or a few years) and repost it as a TBT.
Today, I chose a post from one year and one day ago, when Sean explained what breakfast looks like for an Australian. It is pretty different to an American breakfast.
Here are just some of them:
Vegemite on toast: This is one probably best left to the locals as most visitors can not stand the taste of Vegemite. Amanda's family has many colourful names for it including "road tar" and "axle grease". Vegemite is a yeast extract and has a unique taste. It is hard to explain exactly what it tastes like except to say it is salty. It is normally eaten thinly spread on buttered toast and is a popular option for those looking for a light meal or something that can be prepared quickly.
Baked Beans on Toast: Baked beans on toast is another popular option for those who are looking for a light breakfast or something that can be prepared quickly. Most baked beans in Australia are in a tomato sauce rather than the bbq sauce that is common in baked beans in America. Baked Beans on toast is served mostly at peoples home but can be found on some menus at cafes, motels and other locations.
My favorite McCafe order is a Double Chocolate Muffin and a Cappucino. That was a very yummy breakfast last summer when we were down in Oz.
These are just some of the more interesting options for brekkie (What many Australian call breakfast). Which of these would you be willing to try?
Such a fun thing to compare and contrast. Hope you enjoyed this blast from the past. Which breakfasts sounds the tastiest to you?
