This makes a great breakfast, brunch or snack. You can use any egg really, but a duck egg tends to have a larger yolk, so makes for a richer dish.

4 crumpets, cut in half vertically
4 thick slices of good-quality cooked ham
4 x ½cm-thick slices of Black Cow cheese, cut vertically
5 ducks' eggs
A little rapeseed oil for cooking

Toast the crumpets on what was the outer side. Preheat the oven to 180C.

Put the ham and cheese on the bottom layer of the crumpets, place the tops on and warm through in the oven for about 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese melts.

Meanwhile, fry the ducks' eggs in the oil, lightly seasoning them as they are cooking. Serve the crumpets immediately with an egg on top.
