Saturday Supermarket Smarts: Vegemite
In the brand-new March issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray, we share eight delicious toast topper ideas. One of them is Vegemite Toast, a classic salty Aussie spread that is finally hitting it big in the U.S. But what the heck is this stuff?
Vegemite is an Australian breakfast staple, which celebrated its 90th birthday last October and is still going strong.
Why You Should Buy It
Made from brewer's yeast, the super-savory, slightly nutty spread has a concentrated flavor and a tarlike texture, so a little bit goes a long way.
How You Should Use It
Vegemite toast is the most classic use, but also try stirring a tablespoon of the umami-rich condiment into a Bolognese sauce, or mixing a few tablespoonfuls with honey and EVOO to make a marinade for grilled chicken.
