Sydney is a breakfast city. It does lunch well and perhaps dinner even better, but breakfast best fits its collective psychology.
When the weekend arrives cafes spill out on to the pavement with hungry customers vying for tables in anticipation of breaking their fast.
While I love going out for weekend brekkies, I can't stand the thought of lining up. It's been over 12 hours since my last meal. It can go one of two ways. One -- I faint. Two -- I turn violent.
For me, and those poor souls around me, hunger and queues are a potentially lethal mix. So the safest bet is to whip up something at home.
Last weekend I made these dainty little bacon and egg tarts spiked with a little Parmigino Reggiano for a sharp bite. The tarts are easy to make and are delicious served hot or cold. They're also quite nice with the addition of little baby spinach or wild rocket (arugula).
