Tea and Crumpets for Breakfast

I purchased British Style Crumpets
during a quick visit to the new Trader Joe's in Lexington
on Sunday afternoon.
Plain Crumpets (above) and Cinnamon Crumpets (below)
have become a new favorite breakfast for 13 year-old AJ.

I toast them in the toaster oven,
spread a little pure Irish Butter on the warm crumpets,
then add jam to the plain crumpets
and a little cinnamon sugar to the cinnamon crumpets.
Yum!  Yum! 

I found a recipe
in the book
Tea and Crumpets
Recipes and Rituals from European Tearooms and Cafes
by Margaret M. Johnson

but, the Trader Joe's Crumpets are
perfect for a quick breakfast on school days
especially with a nice cup of English Breakfast Tea.

Yum, sounds good, don't believe I've ever had any.

I recently watched a You-Tube video on how to make crumpets. But crumpets coming from Trader Joe's would be the next best thing to homemade. I'm making a stop at Trader Joe's today to get some Maple Cookies for my Anne of Green Gables tea party. I'll have to check out the crumpets.

I saw some crumpets at the grocery store recent, this post makes me want to go back and buy them!

I've enjoyed browsing your three blogs! I always enjoy hearing anything about tea time!

Wish we had a Traders Joe! I've bought crumpets in the freezer section of our local grocery store and with butter and jam very good! Have a wonderful weekend.

Now this is my kind of breakfast. Can I come and have breakfast with AJ? How fun! Now I must go to Trader Joe's for sure.

I can purchase the Kerry Gold cheddar cheese in our grocery store and although expensive, my absolute favourite! Have never seen the butter.
With all the things I bake, I've never had the desire to make my own crumpets - store bought is all I've ever eaten. :-)
I'll be the cinnamon ones are tasty.

I like to make crumpets myself (hadn't thought of adding cinnamon, yum!), but I am certainly willing to try the ones from Trader Joe's. Thanks for the info!
