  1. Heat the grill to the highest setting. Spread the bacon and sausages (cut side down) out on two baking trays and grill for 10 mins, turning the bacon halfway until cooked through and turning crispy.

  2. Meanwhile heat the beans in a pan over a low heat. Add the Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and paprika, stir in ½ the butter and season. Leave to bubble away.

  3. Fry the eggs in the oil and remaining butter, basting from time to time until the whites are set and yolks runny. Sprinkle with sea salt if you like.

  4. Grill the crumpets. Divide the bacon, sausages and beans between 3 of the crumpets, top each with a fried egg, then spread your choice of sauce (if using) on the lid of your crumpet sandwich. Shut together and serve.

I used 1 x giant crumpet each and piled everything on top. The addition of Worcester sauce and paprika to the beans, really takes it out of the ordinary. We're all really full now!!
