Crumpets with Bacon

TV chef Jamie Oliver published an extraordinary cookbook, Jamie's Dinners, full of quick, British-inspired recipes. Consider what he does with crumpets, which look like English muffins but are doughier and full of small holes.

He likes to top the crumpets with maple syrup and a little bit of chopped red chiles.    Great Comfort Food Recipes
