  • 2 crumpets
  • 1 medium free range eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 40 g 1.5 oz grated cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • sprig fresh parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/390F (180C/355F fan). Beat the egg and milk together.
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Put two egg rings on an oiled baking sheet and push the crumpets to the bottom inside - it needs to be a snug fit.
  • Whisk the eggs and milk together and pour evenly on top of the crumpets into the rings.
  • Sprinkle the cheese on top of each one.
  • Bake in the oven for around 7-10 minutes, until bubbly and set through.
  • Allow to cool a little, then lift off the rings.
  • Serve with a sprinkling of parsley and a pinch of ground pepper.
