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.
- 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)
- Whisk the two eggs in a shallow flat container with the seasonings.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Carefully with a spatula/egg flip, flip over onto the other side. Pan fry until the bottom again is golden brown.
- 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.
