#BEDN 16 - Chloe Likes To Eat

I'm quite glad that today is themed 'Hobbies' because blogging and eating basically encompass mine. Cycling also features in there, but I've been talking about that a lot lately, so I thought it was about time I did a 'Chloe Likes To Eat'.

I've actually spent most of my day, as I often do on a Saturday, in the kitchen, but brunch is a tradition on the weekend, I usually make T do it, but today we did a trade off for some other jobs.

Not bad for a cobbled together brunch- beans, French toast style crumpet topped with a fried egg.
Baked beans topped with French crumpets & fried egg. 

IT was a bit of a cobbled together brunch because it turned out the milk I wanted to use had gone over, but I'm pleased. The crumpets are 'French toast style' here's a How-To

Pull from cupboard: 
4 eggs
1 can baked beans
2 crumpets
Splash of oil or butter

Elegantly in a silk dressing gown a la Nigella:

Dump beans in heat proof jug, shove in microwave for a couple of minutes 

Beat 2 of the eggs with seasoning- or not, if it doesn't grab you, heat a heavy base frying pan and put crumpets in, holey side up. Pour the beaten eggs into the crumpet holes- I'd recommend being gentle, but some of the mix will run out or off, and it's not a big deal. 

Turn the crumpets over after about 2 mins, and heat your fat ready to fry the eggs. 

Pour beans onto plate into bowls, dump crumpet on top and fry eggs. 

The above quantities served 2 of us- 1 crumpet and 1 fried egg each and half the can of beans. It's super quick, but you do need to keep an eye on everything all the times. It's not one you can wander away from to keep half an eye on Saturday Kitchen.....

Scoff with a side of coffee from your favourite mug.
