Be the golden child this Mother’s Day

This Sunday, May 10 marks Mother’s Day and what better way to celebrate than whipping up a delicious and quick meal for the entire family to enjoy.

Aussie pork is a staple for special occasions, whether it be a roast and crackling on Christmas day or a bacon and egg roll on Mother’s Day morning, pork is always a good choice!

Australian Pork have a number of delicious pork recipes and have mixed things up this Mother’s Day, suggesting a bacon, egg and tomato tart for an extra special Mother’s Day brekkie.

Bacon, Egg & Tomato Tart


  • 2 sheets frozen butter puff pastry
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil + extra for greasing
  • 1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 6 Australian rindless streaky bacon rashers, halved lengthways
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup pure cream
  • ½ cup coarsely grated parmesan
  • 250g grape tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup basil pesto


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced.
  2. Grease a 30cm x 20cm slice pan with oil. Line pan with partially thawed pastry, joining sheets to fit the pan. Turn excess pastry on pan edges over to form a 1cm border. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden and just cooked through. Set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, for 4-5 minutes until onion is softened. Set aside to cool slightly. Sprinkle onion mixture over pastry base.
  4. Arrange bacon rashers over onions. Combine eggs and cream in a bowl. Season to taste. Whisk until well combined. Gently pour egg mixture over onion. Arrange tomatoes on the tart.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until egg mixture is set. Drizzle tart with basil pesto, slice and serve.
