Marmite And Poached Egg

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.


4 eggs
8g Marmite for squeezing and spreading
4 crumpets
20g butter
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.
