  1. Preheat the grill to high. Put 4 large eggs in a saucepan, add enough cold water to completely cover, then set over a medium- high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 4 mins (for a soft-set yolk). Meanwhile, put 6 crumpets on a baking sheet.
  2. Spread ½ tsp yeast extract such as Marmite) evenly over each crumpet, then top each with 25g sliced Tesco Finest Vintage Cheddar. Grill for 4-5 mins until the crumpets are crisp and the cheese is melted.
  3. Remove the eggs from the pan, put in egg cups and slice off the top with a knife. Cut the crumpets into soldiers and serve with the eggs to dip in.
