Smokey Baked Beans

Start the day with the quintessential hot breakfast of Bacon & Eggs on the BBQ. Here are some special additions to help take your breakfast to the next level…


Throw an Aussie Lamb Burger on the BBQ and if you have the time top it with my Beetroot Relish.

Aussie Lamb Burger
Aussie Meat Pie Filling

I don’t think you can go past the Aussie Meat Pie for your lunch on Australia Day. The Aussie Meat Pie Filling can be served with mash & mushy peas, instead of pastry for a healthier alternative or you can use it to make some epic meat pies (where you know exactly what is in it!). The general rule is short crust pastry on the bottom and puff pastry on the top.

Ketchup Hidden Veg
The Ketchup with Hidden Veg is a must for your Aussie Meat Pie!

You could even top your pie with some Ketchup with Hidden Veg from The Healthy Mix V.

If you are looking for something a little lighter you could make some THM: Curried Egg Spread & Lettuce Sandwiches or perhaps treat yourself to a THMII: Prawn Cocktail Salad.


Being of Greek Heritage and a proud Australian, it would only be right for me to recommend my Souvlaki from my cookbook A Little Taste of Greece for an Australian Day dinner – fusing the best of both worlds!

Souvlaki kebabs
Throw some Lamb Souvlaki on the BBQ this Australia Day!

Combine it with my pita breads, tzatziki and a tasty Greek salad for a truly magnificent dinner.

Some other BBQ Ideas

Salads, Sides, Dips & Sauces to make it the best BBQ

German Potato Salad Thermomix
Quite possibly the best Potato Salad I have ever tasted.. the German Potato Salad in The Healthy Mix V is a MUST MAKE.


skinnymixer's Raw Lamington Truffle
Raw Lamington Truffle

I released the Raw Lamington Truffles recipe for Australia Day a few years ago, and I still think they are a perfect way to celebrate lamingtons on Australia Day if you have intolerances, allergies or are just trying to choose healthier options. If you are short on time, or lazy like me, simply make them into a slice!

Watermelon Gin Fizz

The Watermelon Gin Fizz is a great drink for entertaining in this heat. You can make the syrup ahead of time and then add the soda water when you are ready to serve.

Stir some passionfruit through your Lemon Tart for the most delicious Lemon Passion Tart

And if you are still hungry after all of that…why not make a Cheese Platter with skinnymixer’s Cheese Logskinnymixer’s Avocado Dip or one of the other ideas from excellent The Skinnymixers Guide to Entertaining.

Finish on a fruity note with a Lemon & Passionfruit Tart by replacing 80% of the lemon juice in the THMIII: Lemon Tarts  with fresh passionfruit.

Thermomix Mango Macadamia Cheesecake
Mango Macadamia Cheesecake

Mango Macadamia Cheesecake is the perfect Summery dessert.

Sweetened by the beautifully ripe sweet mangoes, if you prefer a sweeter cheesecake then I recommend increasing the sweetener.

Still have some mangoes leftover? Why not make a couple of sneaky Mango Fizz Cocktails.
