Get Stuck In
1. Crack your eggs into a bowl and give them a little whisk with a small pinch of salt and pepper and most of the chopped chilli. Then heat a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and fry the bacon in a tiny amount of olive oil. Let it crisp up on both sides.
2. Meanwhile, get your crumpets and really push them into the egg mixture. Turn them a few times – they’ll soak it up like a sponge. Push the golden bacon to one side and tilt the pan so the fat runs into the middle. Add the crumpets to the pan and fry them for a few minutes until golden, then turn them over and fry them on the other side.
3. Serve the eggy crumpets topped with the crispy bacon and serve maple syrup on the side.
