Smoked salmon and scrambled egg crumpets

Serves 4

Crumpets are great with eggs, scrambled, fried or poached. I've used my home-smoked salmon here and sliced it thicker than normal; why are we obsessed with slicing smoked salmon so thin that you can see through it?

4 good-quality crumpets
A couple of good knobs of butter
8 eggs, lightly beaten
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1-2tbsp double cream
8-12 slices of smoked salmon

Toast the crumpets and keep warm. Melt the butter in a thick-bottomed saucepan, then add the eggs and double cream, season and cook on a low heat until lightly cooked. Arrange the salmon on serving plates with the crumpets and spoon the eggs on to the crumpets.
