Weisswurst with beer-braised onion and soused cabbage
What better way to celebrate Australian democracy than with some Australian-as snacks? Yes, there's meat pies and passionfruit slices, sausage rolls and variations on the democracy sausage. There's a canapé-appropriate upgrade of avocado on toast, and popcorn, of course, for those high-tension moments when the psephologists call the election. And when life hands you raw onions, make some onion rings, we say.
