If you were to have crumpets as a meal like lunch or dinner with cheese and beans (as opposed to a snack) how many would you have?

One! Topped with beans and grated cheese and some salad/veg along side.

I don't like cheese but i would only have 1 i think. 2 if i was really hungry (I don't eat a lot)

Three - two with beans and cheese and one with lashings of butter.

Crumpets are breakfast or supper. I have 2 with butter or cheese spread.

Once I ate 9 in one go! But normally 2 or 4 at a time. Any time of day or any meal.

2 I would want more though confused

so you 1-crumpet eating weirdos must be the reason why i occasionally have an odd crumpet lurking in my bread-bin. who eats crumpets in uneven numbers? not anyone in my house, so you folks MUST be breaking in and eating single crumpets from my bread-bin while i am asleep.

I only eat crumpets if someone else is. It's wrong to cook one lol!

When I was pregnant I ate an entire pack of 8 though. I was suddenly starved and they were the only thing in the house that I wanted. I only toasted 2 at a time but before I knew it, the pack was empty sad

What an eye-opening thread. I thought the answer was obviously two, and it's not even the most popular. I need to broaden my outlook on life.

Two. I'd have two slices of bread if it was beans on toast so I'd have two crumpets. Although not sure I'd put anything other than jam or nutella on a crumpet in the first place.

Two. One's not worth the effort, three or more is piggy.

Pootles2010 Wed 10-Aug-11 14:12:02

Obviously 2. With butter, poss peanut butter. Preferable home made (crumpets that is, not pb!)

nappyaddict Wed 10-Aug-11 14:14:09

Oooh nutella and peanut butter has made me want to try some with bananas.

Two. Have never had beans on them, but sometimes have cheese.
