Bacon and Pumpkin Fritters

Five steps for an egg-ceptional Mother's Day


250 grams pumpkin, grated
150 grams bacon, (about 5 rashers) finely chopped
2 Sunny Queen Free Range eggs
50 grams fresh breadcrumbs
1/4 cup parmesan, grated
1 small handful pine nuts, roughly chopped
salt and pepper, for seasoning
olive oil, for frying


In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin, bacon, eggs, bread crumbs, Parmesan, pine nuts and salt and pepper and combine really well with a spatula.
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
With your hands, make small walnut-size balls, then gently press down on them to make small patties. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. In batches cook the fritters for 5 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towelling and serve.

Although Mums deserve to be spoiled every day of the year, Mother's Day is always an extra special egg-scuse to pamper and appreciate her.

This year Mother's Day is on Sunday May 13 and Sunny Queen Farms has the perfect step-by-step guide of activities you and your Mum can enjoy, with some delicious Sunny Queen Free Range inspired treats to whisk up at home that we know she'll love!

Make her breakfast
Let your Mum relax as soon as she wakes up and treat her with a cracking breakfast cooked from the heart like poached eggs, whether it be in bed or with the family. See below for some other scrumptious, easy-to-make breakfast options from Sunny Queen Farms that will have Mum saying yum! Most Mums enjoy a bit of space, so make sure when cooking your Mother's Day feast to use Sunny Queen Free Range eggs laid by hens who enjoy six times more space than the national Free Range Standard, to roam and play.  


Pamper her with an at-home spa experience
Pamper your Mum with the ultimate spa experience – from the comfort of her own home! Light some scented candles, run her a steaming bath with some soothing essential oils or a bath bomb, put on her favourite music and let her relax with a face mask and hair treatment. You could even cook her some Portuguese Custard Tarts , made with fresh free range eggs, to enjoy as a sneaky treat!  


Do the household chores
Do not let Mum lift a finger! We all know Mums love a clean and tidy house, so – as Mum is relaxing – do the dishes, vacuum the house and give it a tidy so your Mum can enjoy a clean and clutter-free house. You can even go the extra mile and arrange all of Mum's Sunny Queen Free Range eggs to smile at her when she opens the fridge door! How cute!  


Enjoy the day with a picnic
Take the whole family out to enjoy the fresh air with some fun family activities at the park, and a packed picnic for lunch or afternoon tea. Make sure Mum doesn't go hungry with some delicious snacks like our Zucchini Slice or for a quick, healthy picnic option hard boiled free range eggs always make a tasty treat. Need some inspiration? Check out for a range of scrumptious recipes the whole family can make!


Take your Mum out
We all know busy Mums rarely get time to indulge themselves, so take Mum out to that movie she's been wanting to see, or to that restaurant she's always wanted to go to.

No matter how you plan to celebrate Mother's Day, we have some scrumptious recipes made with our Sunny Queen Free Range eggs to spoil her from dawn to dusk.
