Eggy Crumpets

I saw this idea on Jamie Oliver’s new (new to the Food Network anyway, it’s from 2007) show Jamie at Home.  On his egg show, he did a recipe that he didn’t name, but I rather thought should be called Eggy Crumpets.  Turns out, so did he.  Here’s my take on it.

Ingredients 

  • 1 small pat of butter
  • 2 large eggs (preferably organic – they taste better!)
  • seasoning of your choice – I used Trader Joe’s 21 Seasonings Salute.
  • 2 crumpets (organic if you can get them)
  • good organic tomato sauce (aka ketchup)

 

Method 

  1. Whisk the two eggs in a shallow flat container with the seasonings.
  2. Place the crumpets top side down into the egg mixture to soak up.  Push down to get maximum soakage, then turn over.  Repeat with the other side.
  3. Put the small pat of butter In a non-stick frying pan,  moving it around to coat the whole base of the pan. Heat until it just starts to sizzle.
  4. Place the crumpets into the pan, flat side down.  This is where I also drizzled about half each of the left over egg over the top of each crumpet.  Pan fry for about a minute or two, until the bottom is golden brown.
  5.  Carefully with a spatula/egg flip, flip over onto the other side.   Pan fry until the bottom again is golden brown.
  6. Gently flip into a plate, and serve with a good lashing of your condiment of choice.  Mine is Heinz’s organic Tomato Sauce (US) or Australia’s Rosella’s Tomato Sauce.
