  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Line a 2lb loaf tin with baking paper. 
  2. Mix the butter, garlic and parsley together, then add a good grind of black pepper and mix until well combined. Stir in the parsley, chopped mozzarella and grated Cheddar. 
  3. Spread the butter mixture over each piece of crumpet. Layer the reserved whole parsley leaves over the base of the lined tin. Top with the crumpet slices, four at a time, layering up until they are used up.
  4. Cover with tinfoil and place in the oven for 20-25 mins.
  5. Remove and allow to cool slightly before turning out and serving. 

Tip: No need to cut, just pull each piece of crumpet away to reveal the cheesy garlic goodness!
