Posted on 5 May 202021 Self-Isolation Meals That Only Australians Will Froth OverMmm, can't wait to have avo toast for the billionth time.by Isha BassiEntertainment ProducerFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. Vegemite and cheese sandwich View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Self-iso is slowly, but surely, aiding the return of lunchbox favourites like the vegemite and cheese sambo. It's a humble meal, but also one of the tastiest. 2. Avo toast View this photo on Instagram instagram.com You can't get more Aussie than slapping some fresh avo on your toast. If you're fancy, you may even season with some chilli flakes and an egg on top. But, as I'm sure many of us are finding out, avo on toast doesn't taste quite as good when you've been eating it three days in a row. 3. Meat pie View this photo on Instagram instagram.com You're lying if you say your freezer isn't stocked with a small army of these bad bois. Yes, they're not the healthiest thing to classify as a "meal", but honestly, who even cares these days. My only concern is chomping down to make sure the middle isn't still frozen, only to burn my tongue in the process. 4. Sausage roll View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Just like meat pies, sausage rolls are high-tier frozen goods, especially during self-iso. Flaky pastry, that mystery meat filling — shove that right in my gob, tbh. And kudos to you if you make them from scratch, but that's calling for the sort of energy I don't have right now. 5. DIY Bunnings snag View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Even though Bunnings snags have been suspended for now, that doesn't mean Aussies can't still get their daily fix of this iconic meal in self-iso. And while it doesn't quite live up to the standard of a Bunnings sausage sizzle, it'll do for now. 6. Macca's nuggets View this photo on Instagram instagram.com We've all caved into ordering Macca's one, two...maybe even three times a week. And look, there's no judgement in that because who could resist the thought of dunking these crispy bois into some sweet 'n' sour sauce? 7. Fish fingers View this photo on Instagram instagram.com I can't decide if fish fingers are about the saddest meal you can prepare in self-iso or one of the most comforting. On the one hand, they're always soggy and covering them in tomato sauce or serving them with some mushy peas doesn't always save them. But on the other, I distinctly remember devouring these for a large part of my childhood — and for that reason, I'm placing them into the category of comfort food, self-iso edition. 8. Banana bread View this photo on Instagram instagram.com File this under old-school baking recipes that have suddenly become popular in lockdown. And why not? Banana bread is a classic and Aussies around the country have discovered that instead of paying an exorbitant amount for it at a cafe, they can make it at home with those overripe bananas they forgot about. 9. Instant soup View this photo on Instagram instagram.com With the weather cooling down, it's no surprise that packet soup has become everyone's best friend. It's the quick and easy answer to listlessly staring at your cupboard and wondering what to eat for lunch. Plus, the Creamy Chicken With Croutons from Cup A Soup will always slap. 10. Cheese toastie View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Look, let's be honest. Aussies are a lazy bunch — we like to work smarter, not harder and that's why the cheese toastie rules in self-iso. Also, haven't we all wondered what else we can chuck cheese onto and make a meal out of during lockdown? 11. Chip butty View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Soft, white bread slathered with butter, crunchy chips and a good dousing of tomato sauce. It's carbs on carbs, which makes it the perfect self-iso meal to drown all your sorrows in. 12. Instant mac 'n' cheese View this photo on Instagram instagram.com If you look up comfort food in the dictionary, you'll find a picture of instant mac 'n' cheese, specifically of the Kraft variety. Yes, it tastes extremely plastic-like and artificial, but you can't get enough of that delicious cheese powder. 13. Tuna melt View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Tuna melts are the sort of meal you cook up when you want to feel like you've put in a bit of effort. Plus, they go a long way to clearing the stacks of John West you have hiding in your pantry. 14. Bacon and cheese roll View this photo on Instagram instagram.com We've all picked up a six pack of these from Coles or Baker's Delight and tried to make them last the entire week. But then that turns out to be a joke because you inhaled, like, three of them yesterday. There's something about that soft bread, bacon and cheese combo that is clearly irresistible. 15. Spaghetti on toast View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Canned spaghetti by itself? Good. But whack it on a slice of toast and you've got a great meal that took you no time at all to prepare. Bonus points for using Heinz spaghetti, that's quality. 16. Frozen pizza View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Gone are the days where frozen pizzas were kept handy in case of an emergency. Now, everyone has turned into a sort of frozen pizza connoisseur, knowing the exact temperature and time needed to get that crispy base. 17. Fairy bread View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Times are tough, which means anything, including childhood birthday faves, rank as a self-iso meal. Plus, who wouldn't want to add some colour and joy into the mindless routine that is WFH? 18. Instant noodles View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Self-iso is a lot like being back at uni — you've got odd sleeping hours, you only leave the house when necessary and your diet consists solely of the goodness that is instant noodles. 19. Rissoles View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Ah, yes. The humble rissole. No doubt yours were probably a bit more burnt than intended and doused in tomato sauce, but still a solid meal that'll fill you up. 20. Spag bol View this photo on Instagram instagram.com This should be renamed to mum's spag bol because you've either used her recipe to make it, or she found out that you were living off frozen goods and had to fix that pronto. Either way, the requirement is that you must serve this dish with a shit-ton of cheese on top. 21. Weet-Bix View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Weet-Bix is basically the official cereal of Australia. And it's great, it's nice, it goes well with some fruit — that is until you start eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner because you can't be fucked to make anything else.
