3 Traditional Aussie Recipes for ANZAC Day

For a long time, Australian food had a great resemblance to British food, largely due to the fact that most Australian settlers were of British origin. Yet over time, Australian cuisine has taken on its own unique fusion of Mediterranean, British, and Asian flavors. This article features 3 favorite Australian recipes you’re sure to enjoy!

Sausage Rolls

The Aussie Sausage Roll

Ingredients:

  • 6 slices of bread
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 4lbs ground sausage meat
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp mixed herbs
  • 24 ounce package of ready puff pastry (thawed)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • Desired seasonings to taste

Directions:

Take the crusts off of the bread and soak the bread in hot water for about 5 minutes. Remove the excess water from the bread. In a large bowl, mix together the sausage meat, bread, onion, desired seasonings, and mixed herbs. Blend well, then place the mixture into an icing piping bag (or a freezer bag with a corner snipped off). Roll out the pastry sheets and cut them in half. Pipe the filling along one edge of each sheet of pastry. Roll the pastry over the sausage twice (or until the sausage is fully encased in the pastry). Cut a few slits into the top of each pastry and brush them with a beaten egg. Move the sausage rolls to a baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees F for about 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees F for an additional 10 – 15 minutes.

  • 1.5 lbs ground beef
  • 2 beef stock cubes

  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 deep dish pie crust
  • (topping of pie)
  • 12 ounces puff pastry
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp water

Allow mixture to boil, then reduce heat. Cover & simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine 1/4 cup of water with 2 tablespoons of flour and mix well. Add this to meat, stir until well combined. Return meat to heat and stir until mixture thickens. Add soy sauce and stir well. Simmer (uncovered) for 5 — 10 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool before pouring into pie shell. Roll out puff pastry onto floured surface then cut pastry to fit over pie. Mix egg yolk and water together, and brush over top of pie, then bake at 400 degrees F for 5 minutes, or until pie crust is golden brown. Reduce to 350 degrees F and cook for additional 10 minutes.
