Time for another breakfast recipe – because you know I love them. Today I’m making Eggy Breakfast Crumpets (with bacon.)
I’ve been using the Campbells breakfast meat box regularly for the last few weeks, and wanted to use it again! This recipe came from seeing an instagram from (@whatgeorgiaeats) and I thought I would give it a go. The first time I didn’t soak the crumpets for long enough so there was a lot of egg to pour over the top but I’m learning. (So, keep that in mind.) Enjoy.
Put in your trolley
(Serves 1 but double/triple depending on hangreyness)
A sprinkling black pepper
1 fresh red chilli chopped
2 rashers of bacon. (I used Campbells from their breakfast box.)
1 round crumpet
2 large eggs (free range obvs.)
Crack the egg into a bowl, give a whisk with a fork and season well. Chop up the chilli and add to the mix. Heat up a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat.
Chop up the bacon rashers and pop into the pan. Let them crisp a little on both sides. (Crispy bacon for the win.) Meanwhile soak the crumpets in the eggy mix. Turn them over a couple of times so that they soak up allllll the eggy goodness. (Push them down too so you get it all in.)
Move the bacon to the side of the pan, but move the bacon juice around the pan. Pop in the crumpets and fry until till golden on one side and then tip over to fry on the other side. Garnish with the bacon and whatever else you fancy. Maple syrup? Honey? Herbs? Feta? All will work. 12
Numbers if you’re bothered
This comes to under 300 cals even with the bacon which is brilliant. You could also add extra vegetables like peas/mushrooms/grilled tomatoes if you wanted to attempt the 10 portions a day I think they suggest.
I recommend reading Man or Mango by Lucy Ellwood. Brilliant, mixed up book, worth a flick through over this scrummy breakfast.
