Fairy bread sangas, sausage rolls, lamb chops and meat pies. These are just some of the Aussie foods to make your Australia Day get-together a bloody ripper of a shindig.
We’ve got some of the most iconic Australian foods wrapped up in delicious recipe ideas, perfect for any Australia Day celebration.
BBQ at the ready, come see what other Australia Day food we have to keep the crowd well fed!
1. Throw a prawn on the barbie!
Is there anything greater than grilled prawns? Nup, didn’t think so!
2. Lamb for the BBQ win
It doesn’t get much more Aussie than a bit of lamb on the BBQ. Try this marinated butterflied lamb recipe on for size this Australia Day.
3. All the refreshing melon snacks
Serve up some icy cold lemon snacks – but not just any melon snacks – Australia shaped ones. Bust out your Australia shaped cookie cutter and go to task on a rockmelon , watermelon or pineapple.
4. Kingston biscuits
Wheaty yet chocolatey, these bickies are a firm favourite in many homes across the country. Have a crack at making your own kingston biscuits. An Australia Day food favourite, for sure.
5. Koala in a creek
Not to be mistaken for ol’ mate frog in a pond, we love this Australia Day food idea of a koala in a creek!
6. Meat pies
They don’t even have to be fancy – just serve them up with a bottle of tomato sauce and you’re on a winning wicket. Of course, if you do want to make your own, try this handy party pie recipe. Delicious!
7. Sausage rolls
The natural partner to the aforementioned meat pies, sausage rolls are the ultimate Aussie food snack. Wrapped in puff pastry and bite sized, who can resist?
8. Iced VoVo ice cream sandwiches
A fancy take on the Iced VoVo biscuit, this is one for the foodies. Icy cold and cute as can be, you’ll want to get around the Iced VoVo ice cream sandwich creation.
9. Fairy bread
I can’t think of one reason why you wouldn’t want to serve up a plate of fairy bread at any Australian themed anything. The kids (and the kids at heart) will thank you.
10. Milo cheesecake
Just because we really do love all things Milo, why not include a Milo cheesecake on the Australia Day sweets table? So cheesy, so malty!
