This recipe for Marmite and poached egg on crumpet is the perfect substantial breakfast. The smear of Marmite really adds that extra umph of umami.
8g Marmite for squeezing and spreading
2 large mushrooms (optional)
Fill a deep saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a rapid simmer.
Once ready whisk the water vigorously in a circular motion to create a whirlpool in the middle of the pan. Quickly crack an egg into the centre and allow to cook for 3-4 minutes.
Meanwhile, spread a small amount of butter on the crumpets and squeeze Marmite on top. Pop them under the grill a couple of minutes to toast them..
Once everything is ready layer the mushrooms (optional) on the crumpets and top with the eggs.
