  1. In a shallow bowl, mix together the beaten egg and milk and season with black pepper. 
  2. Heat a nonstick frying pan over a medium heat and spray with the cooking spray. Dunk the crumpets into the egg mixture until well coated. Cook the crumpets top side down, for 1-2mins flip and add the grated cheese to the tops. Cover the pan with a lid to help melt the cheese and cook for another 2-3 mins. 
  3. Lift out of the pan and allow to cool. Meanwhile, stir together all of the ingredients for the salsa dip and divide between 2 pots. Slice the crumpets if you’d like and add to the lunchboxes. Serve with sliced pepper for dipping.
