  • 2 crumpets
  • 2 medium British Lion eggs
  • Ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano or mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 25g grated cheddar or mozzarella
  • Toppings of your choice such as sliced olives, sliced mushroom, peppers etc
  • Small bunch of chives


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / Fan 180C / Gas Mark 6. Crack the eggs into a jug. Add a little black pepper and the herbs, then use a fork to beat everything together.
  2. Pour 1/2 tsp of olive oil into two little ovenproof dishes (12-16cm across) and brush it around the base and sides. Place a crumpet in each dish then pour an equal amount of eggs over each crumpet so it fills up the holes. Leave it to soak in for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle grated cheese over the crumpets. Next, decorate each with your choice of toppings to make ‘Easter Bunny’ faces. When you’re done, stand the dishes on a baking tray and carefully put in the oven.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes until the egg has set and the crumpets are golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes. 
  5. Use the chives to make ‘whiskers’ then they’re ready to serve.
