There are not many things more australian, than a sao biscuit with coon cheese and tomato on it. It's right up there with football, meat pies, kangaroos and holden cars.
I'd say just about every kid in australia grows up on either sao's or vita wheats. In our house it was sao's. I myself actually prefer a vita wheat, but I guess Mum and Dad were sao fans.
So a sao is just a plain dry square biscuit. Sort of like a giant water cracker. Once you bite into it you can't inhale again until you've mushed it or you're in danger of choking on the crumb dust.
So here he is.
And here he is dressed. With Coon cheese. Vintage.
Now I'm more of a vita wheat girl. Remember when the holes used to actually work. And you could squeeze your two biscuits together and all the butter and vegemite would ooze out the holes. They don't really work any more. They're only decorative holes, not functional ones.
So here's my naked vita wheat
And here he is dressed. Yumm. Much better as well because I usually only eat cherry tomatoes. Or baby romas are even better.
Must add that the cheese I used on this was very nice as well. It was Mainland Club Cheddar Vintage.
And I'd also like to add that I don't really eat vegemite, I eat bovril, but hardly anyone knows what that is. But it still used to squeeze out the holes well. Better actually because it's kind of runny.
But in the end what I really prefer is a rice cake. I have them every day for breakfast. With cottage cheese and chilli sauce on top.
My stomach is rumbling now.
