G'day mates!...It's time for another dose of the street food guide to the FIFA World Cup 2014! This time we're headed down unda' (that's the last one) to Australia (playing the Netherlands at 11am CDT) for a Sausage Sizzle and a Dark n' Stormy. There's a huge street food movement in Australia going on right now, but a lot of it is Chinese dumplings and dim sum. While that's delicious, it doesn't really highlight the average intake of an all-Australian bite. The two indulgences we'll be looking at today are both delicious and simple to make in time for you to watch the match!

The Sausage Sizzle isn't super complicated; it's essentially a glorified hot dog. I found a recipe to kick up the simmer to a full on sizzle. Cooking the sausages in a covered pan with onions really helps flavor both ingredients. After you get a nice crisp from the grill and a good caramelization on the onions, you're ready to rock! Check it out and let me know what you think.

Australians, much like Americans, like to keep it simple. The Dark n' Stormy has three ingredients: dark rum (use Rougaroux Full Moon to keep it local), ginger beer, and a hint of lime. The refreshing ginger beer will not only make you feel pumped about life, but ginger also serves as a digestif which will help you out if you've been snacking on game food.
