A few months back I discovered a new food. I was just standing there, considering my cream cheese options, and looked down and noticed a package of crumpets. I had heard of them before, probably in a book, and felt they sounded very high tea-ish. So I snatched the package up.
I don't toast mine, I prefer it soft and sort of chewy. I put 2 on a plate and microwave them for 30 seconds or so.
Then I put butter on them, and let it melt down into all the little holes. Aaaah, butter.
Speaking of the holes, that is my favorite part about these crumpets. It makes a neat texture, and when you cut off a bite, it looks like little vertical posts inside.
So there you have it. Crumpets are delicious and delightful, and you should go get some.
