How to Make a Vegemite Sandwich. Vegemite is an Australian spread first devised in 1922 by Australian Fred Walker. Made from brewer's yeast extract, vegemite is thick and very dark in color. Vegemite is also a very good source of Vitamin B. While people in Australia grow up eating vegemite, non-Australians often don't eat this particular food. However, if you want to give vegemite a try, a vegemite sandwich is a good place to start.

Step 1

Use a knife to spread butter on two slices of bread. You can use any type of bread that you choose.

Step 2

Spread a thin layer of vegemite on one of the buttered slices of bread. Try not to use too much vegemite, as it has a very strong flavor.

Step 3

Add any extras to your vegemite sandwich that you desire. Some people add cheese and others add honey. You can also add peanut butter or eat a vegemite sandwich with vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes and onions.

Step 4

Close the vegemite sandwich with the other piece of buttered bread. Be sure to put the buttered side down.


  • Toast the bread if you prefer. Vegemite is an acquired taste. Don't be put off if you don't love vegemite right from the start. In the United States, you can purchase vegemite through online retailers, at specialty grocery stores or in the international foods section of most larger grocery stores.


  • Vegemite is high in sodium. Don't eat vegemite sandwiches too often, especially if you are watching your salt intake.
