A typical light Australian breakfast includes porridge, cereal, toast, and fruit. A heavier breakfast would include traditional eggs, bacon, and toast. Vegemite is typically spread over the toast. Vegemite is a dark salty spread that is usually eaten in the morning.
Lunch is not a popular dining time in Australia due to the fact that many citizens fill up on their morning tea. If you were to eat lunch, you would make sandwich with anything you can find! Baked Beans, Vegemite, or even cold spaghetti can be used to make a sandwich.
Dinner is the biggest meal of the day for Australians. Australian dinners are "Americanized" for the most part. Popular dishes include barbecue, pizza, pasta, stir fry, and vegetables.
Meat pies and sausage biscuits are popular in Australia. ANZAC biscuits are also a specialty of Australia. They are made of rolled oats, flour, coconut, sugar, butter and golden syrup. Pavlova is a meringue cake with a light, soft inner layer complete with a crispy crust.
