EoMEoTE #5: Eggymite--Scrambled eggs with Vegemite

Hot buttered toast with Vegemite?
Or hot buttered toast with scrambled eggs?

Why not do both?!?

When inspiration for this month's End of Month Eggs on Toast Extravaganza struck me, I had visions of soft fluffy egg pillows decorated with beautiful dark brown swirls of salty goodness.

I whisked the eggs with milk and then added half-a-teaspoon of Vegemite. Trying to swirl the solid lump of brewers yeast artistically was more difficult than I had naively envisioned.

Instead of swirls I got a rather brown looking omelette, but taste-wise, this definitely provided sodium satisfaction and a nice contrast of flavours.

To my horror I actually did consider Marmite as a more feasible substitute for swirling with its thin toffee-like consistency, but no, this shall remain a Vegemite-only household thankyouverymuch! =P

For a look at this month's eggs-on-toast interpretations in the global kitchen, check out Jo's wrap-up at The Passionate Cook, the first-ever "eggs-ternal" host of EoMEoTE.

    Oooh yum....I like the sound of that! I reckon a bit of cheese as well, and it'd be perfect!

    hey AG
    looks like i miss another EoMEoTE!! Er...I dont think bread (toasted) and butter pudding goes under the EoMEoTE category eh? :p

    Ohh I like vegemite, not on toast though. Actually I like Bovril better but it's beef extract which has a very very similar taste to Vegemite (about 90%). Oh yup,my granny usually swirl vegemite into a bowl of plain congee for us kids to eat whenever we got sick. :)

    You should have topped it with more vegemite! haha. Seriously is Marmite better tasting than vegemite?

    It's a beautiful dream, will we see it in our lifetime.

    What about Japanese tamagoyaki and instead of sneaking in a layer of nori, a nice spread of vegemite?

    Well done for not yielding to marmite, terrible stuff, apparently made from small children.

    So how does it taste? I have a tiny bottle of vegemite someone gave to me as souvenir from Oz, and I don't know what to do with it. Do you recommend trying it with scrambled eggs as a first Vegemite experience?

    eeks i've been in sydney for 2 months but havent had the courage to try vegemite yet! especially when friends say "you really should try vegemite" with an evil grin..

    it's more than just salty right, given the extreme reactions people give? besides toast, are there any other ways to eat it with?
