The rule of thumb:

Cook toast, remove it from the toaster immediately and generously spread with butter or margarine. Use lots, the more the merrier Don't let the toast get cool because it makes it harder to spread the butter.

Place a small amount of Vegemite on the toast and spread it thinly like in the picture above.

Sit back and enjoy.
Hahaha whats wrong with the younger generation? As kids we ate it spread like axle grease! If you don't shudder when you take the first bite there's not enough on your toast . :-)

Oh I absolutely agree with you. I was pointing out the correct way to eat it for the Aussies to be / recently arrived and have yet to ever eat it in their life. That would be the way to start off.

Personally, this is how I prefer it, but that's taken almost 30 years of eating the stuff to love it that much.

I still can't eat it spread too thickly. I do like more than a tiny smear, but it can't be lathered on or I gag.

I once dared my brother to eat a huge spoonful and watching his eyes bulge as he started spluttering was hilarious. For the record I did that in response to him making me eat this hot chilli powder.

I don't mind Vegemite, but coming from NZ, I was raised on Marmite, so if you can't handle Vegemite buy some Marmite (from Coles), because it's not as strong, and spread if thinly for newbies. I think all Kiwi and Aussie babies are brought up on either Marmite or Vegemite. I imagine it would be an acquired taste though.

Tim Tams, yeah they're OK, bit sickly, but they do have more flavours in Oz.

Love my Shapes, I can scoff a packet by myself just watching a movie.

Kangaroo, I won't touch the stuff anymore, blerk. That's after I found out they're not farmed, yeah running free might paint a nice little picture in your head, but the reality of how they are killed is anything but.

Love Aussie fish and chips, they're not as greasy as back home and I especially love barramundi,

How strange that Americans don't have beetroot in their hamburgers, haha, I always thought everyone in the world did.

I was in Sydney last year and my brother in law got a pepper pie. Blerk, not as in capsicum, but as in meat liberally sprinkled with black pepper. Can't say I liked it much, but the pies in general seem better from the bakeries opposed to the big franchises which are made with horrible hard pastry. And is that mushy pea thing we get in Queensland from the UK, because I thought I'd try it, and yep, they taste like peas that are mushed. Hmmm.

But I do love my Weetbix, lamingtons, pavlova, my Sunday Roast (that's probably British) and I love my prawns, yum!!!
