This recipe is from Jamie Oliver’s ‘Jamie at Home’ book (available here on Amazon) – since we first had this it has been a real favourite for my husband and I- it’s super easy to do but qualifies as a ‘special’ breakfast in our house! You might feel  a bit doubtful about the addition of the chilli, but please try it (if you generally like chilli) it works SO well with the rest of the ingredients. We always have ours with brown sauce although Jamie says you can also use maple syrup.

If you are following Slimming World then the crumpets do use up some of your syns for the day- I have used Co-op crumpets here which are 4.5 syns each (and I’m having 2!) but it’s Mother’s day and I think I deserve a treat! However, I think one eggy crumpet would still provide you with a filling and satisfying breakfast!

(Please note that in the photo I haven’t removed the fat from the bacon as I usually would!)

Ingredients

  • 4 crumpets
  • 1 red chilli finely chopped
  • 4 smoked bacon medallions optional
  • 2 large free range eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • low calorie cooking spray
  • Brown sauce

Instructions

  • Beat the eggs in a flat-bottomed bowl, and add in the chopped chilli and salt and pepper
  • One at a time, place the crumpets in the egg mixture and press down with a fork until they have soaked up all of the egg, set aside on a plate (scrape any leftover chilli onto the top of them)
  • Fry the bacon medallions until cooked at set aside
  • Spray a pan with low calorie cooking spay, and gently fry the eggy crumpets for a few minutes on each side, until they are golden brown, and when you push on them with a spatula you don't get 'wet' egg squeezing out
  • Serve the crumpets with the bacon and brown sauce, and sprinkle over a little extra chilli if you fancy!

Notes

More often than not we have these without the bacon- they are delicious either way!

I just made this for the first time and it was really nice and so easy to make. I even added some baked beans with mine. The only thing I wasn’t sure was if the crumpets had to be cooked before adding to the egg, I guess not else it would say. The crumpets tasted a bit doughy that’s the only thing. Otherwise I will definitely have this one again.
