There suddenly seems to be some sort of debate forming around the old fashioned and very gorgeous crumpet!
It seems many people just enjoy them hot with lashings of best butter on and that’s the ONLY way they enjoy them……….
Seriously, crumpets are amazing and they must be experimented with. You owe it to the crumpet! Respect it enough to smother it in your face food and try eating them together!!
Growing up we always eat crumpets, not just for breakfast but as a meal also!
My mam would often toast them and give us them for breakfast where we would spread on lots of best butter until it was literally dripping through, then me and my brothers would put either choc spread, jam, golden syrup or even peanut butter on them! They taste sooooo good.
If my mam made them to eat as a meal, she would often serve them up with beans and a fried egg on top, for a light lunch she would put poached eggs on them with a blob of salad cream (my fave)
Just recently I’ve had these every morning for breakie! I’m 21 weeks pregnant and wanting them BADLY!
Yesterday I decided to add a little smoked salmon on top of the best butter and added a poached egg. It really was nice! Also add asparagus or spinach for a real treat and turn it into a heavier meal!
Honestly don’t list to the majority of society who tell you it’s wrong! Why is it wrong? Just because they’ve not heard of it before or even dared to try it?
Get experimenting and don’t forget to comment back and tell me what you put on yours and did you enjoy it???
