The times I’ve visited Australia have been magical, in no small part because of the way they make some food their own. The hamburger, a traditional American fry-out food, is transformed into something glorious here. What really makes it aussie is “put an egg onnit”.
I pulled this from a great article in the guardian’s Word of Mouth blog, both as a great recipe, but also as some of the best food writing around. I’ve included the whole article below the recipe for archival reasons.
Grilled cheese sammiches are the traditional midwestern comfort food. Paired with tomato soup, they are wonderful for when things are cold and blowy, or when you don’t want to think about what to make.
This recipe originally was clipped out of an ad, but I’ve since done away with that recipe in favour of my own.
