Air Fryer Cheese & Marmite Crumpet Loaf

Serves
6
Total Time
23 Minutes
Ingredients
6 sourdough crumpets
6 tsp of Marmite
350g tub of four cheese sauce
125g of grated cheddar & mozzarella
Parmesan, finely grated, to sprinkle
Rocket leaves, to serve
Method
Step 1
Preheat the air fryer to 200°C. If you have a small loaf tin that fits into the air fryer (about 18cm x 8cm), use that. If not, use the cardboard sleeve from the crumpet pack as a size guide to make a rough tray out of foil, discarding the cardboard afterwards. Line the tin or foil tray with a rectangle of baking parchment.
Step 2
Toast the crumpets for 2-4 minutes in the air fryer, turning halfway, until just golden.
Spread the hot crumpets with Marmite, then top each with about 1 tsp of cheese sauce. Sprinkle each one with a little grated cheddar and mozzarella. Spoon half the remaining cheese sauce into the base of the prepared tray.
Step 3
Stack the crumpets snugly on their sides in the prepared tray. Dot with the remaining sauce and sprinkle over the remaining grated cheese and a little parmesan, if using. Bake for 10 minutes until piping hot throughout, bubbling and golden. Serve immediately. Some black pepper on top and rocket leaves on the side make tasty additions.

Add the garlic, Marmite, rosemary, tomato purée, lentils, Worcestershire sauce and maple syrup/sweetener, if using. Stir and heat through. Add the red wine and bring to the boil.
Step 4
Finely dice the ceps, if using, and add to the pan with their soaking water. Add 500ml of the reserved celeriac cooking water to the pan. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked, adding more cooking water if needed. Season.
Step 5
to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas Mark 4. Spoon the lentil mixture into a deep, medium-sized casserole dish and top with the celeriac and potato mash. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, then finish off under a hot grill to brown the top.
