  • shallot 1, grated
  • mature cheddar 75g, grated
  • emmental 50g, grated
  • wholegrain mustard 2 tsp
  • onion chutney or onion marmalade 1 tbsp
  • giant crumpets 4
  • soft butter 1 tbsp


  • Step 1

    In a bowl, mix the shallot, grated cheeses, mustard, chutney, some freshly ground pepper and the tiniest pinch of salt, and mash everything together.

  • Step 2

    Pile the cheese mix on the holey sides of two of the crumpets and sandwich the other two crumpets on top.

  • Step 3

    Spread some butter over the crumpet tops, flip and spread the butter over the bottoms too.

  • Step 4

    Heat a wide, non-stick, ovenproof frying pan over a medium heat and heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

  • Step 5

    Put the two sandwiches into the pan and fry until the underside is golden brown and crisp.

  • Step 6

    Flip the sandwiches, and sit a heavy, smaller pan on top of the crumpets with a can of something to weigh it down and squish the sandwiches.

  • Step 7

    Once golden and crisp, remove the weighing pan, flip the crumpets and cook in the oven for 5 minutes.

  • Step 8

    When the cheese is melted, quarter and eat straight away.
