Grandma's Vegemite gravy

We’ve given classic gravy an Aussie-inspired twist using a secret ingredient… Vegemite! Pair it with your next roast dinner - it’s a flavour sensation.





  • 2 tbs roast turkey or chicken pan juices, or 2 tbs melted butter
  • 2 tbs plain flour
  • 2 cups (500ml) chicken stock
  • 1 tbs Vegemite
  • Roasted onion wedges, to serve



Place the pan juices or butter in a roasting pan or medium frying pan. Place over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring and scraping the base of the pan, for 2 mins. Gradually add the stock, stirring and scraping the base of the pan constantly. Bring to the boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 mins or until the mixture thickens. Strain through a fine sieve into a heatproof jug.


Return the gravy to a clean roasting pan or frying pan over medium heat. Add the Vegemite and stir until well combined. Stir in the onion. Season with pepper and sprinkle with thyme springs. Serve the Vegemite gravy with roast turkey or chicken.
