I have recently been made redundant, due to office relocation. Some 60 people have lost their jobs because of this. I have always tried to live healthily and economically. I have been told by my children that I “do well nice random meals“! High praise indeed! I try to take advantage of any offers that Tesco has at the time and adjust my recipes accordingly. I ran out of bread, and only had crumpets, and sadly, I didn‘t get time to take a photo, the food was devoured so quickly! Apparently, it made a difference, using crumpets.. what can I say? Isn't it nice, though, when you hear, "Cor, thanks Mum!"? This recipe did that. Nuff said.

Grill the bacon and pop the crumpets into the toaster. When the toaster pops, butter the crumpets, place the bacon on top, and then top that with the fried eggs.

Just add mushrooms, or whatever you prefer. Cheap and easy. I thought of this on Sunday morning, when the clocks had already gone back, but I had forgotten about that small detail and It became brunch, not breakfast! And I improvised, all the way, hence, breakfast on a crumpet as I had no bread left. I just used what I had in the fridge. You all know that one! Sadly, I can‘t upload a photo, because the food has been eaten! How very dare they! But hey, it looks like a crumpet, with egg and bacon on top. I also added sausages, left over from the previous evening..My name is Mum, apparently ... you know who you are!
