  • 6 crumpets
  • 4 tbsp passata
  • 4 tbsp ketchup
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • toppings of your choice (peppers, cherry tomatoes, red onion, sweetcorn, olives, ham and basil all work well)
  • 75g cheddar cheese, grated


  1. Heat the grill to high. Lightly toast the crumpets in a toaster or under the grill. Meanwhile, mix the passata, ketchup and oregano together in a bowl. Season. Chop your chosen toppings into small pieces – young children can tear basil, or chop soft veg in a cup using safety scissors.

  2. Line a baking tray with foil. Spread the sauce over the crumpets, then top with the veg and cheese. Arrange on the tray and grill for 3-4 mins, until the cheese is golden and bubbling. Leave to cool slightly before eating.
