These were really lovely. I served with the Curried Lentil, Apple & Parsnip Soup from this site. They went very well with the apple flavour from the soup. Would definitely make these again.

I used the same ingredients but placed on top of white pitta breads, created a sort of pizza! Yummy. Kids loved it.

I used chives instead of spring onions as I didn't have them. Really nice and juicy and tasted yum! Will be making this again.

Try switching the spring onions for a (smaller quantity) of chopped fresh sage, delicious!

I used large slices of doorstep loaf and it made a very nice breakfast.

Tried it and loved it. It made a good alternative to buttered toasts with ham.
