Did these 4 foods make it to your Australia Day plate?

Don’t go thinking pavlova when you think of an Australian food, because it turns out New Zealand has stepped up to claim it as its own. 

But not to worry because us Aussies, we’ve got so many more fair dinkum foods to celebrate with.

1. Lamington

A square shaped sponge cake covered in chocolate icing and desiccated coconut is exactly what it sounds like: absolutely delicious! Though, in my opinion, don’t go adding that jam stuff in the middle…

2. Tim Tams

If it weren’t for Tim Tams we’d have no slams which are the real champion food combination to come out of Australia.

But honestly who could say no to two chocolate biscuits filled with chocolate and then coated in more chocolate? Absolutely nobody!

3. Meat Pie

Filled with meat and not fruit, this is an Australian delicacy. With crisp, flakey pastry it’s never going to disappoint. 

4. Burger with ‘The Lot’

True blue Aussie burgers that come with ‘the lot’ means it is layered with pineapple, beetroot, egg and bacon as well as the regular beef burger ingredients. You know you’ve gotten a good one when all the burger juices ooze out!
