  • KFC fans go wild for latest menu hack that combines crumpets with its Original Recipe chicken

  • Recreate this burger at home using cupboard staples and a couple of ingredients from KFC

London, United Kingdom, November 14, 2019- Born out of the very British obsession with crumpets and KFC’s Original Recipe, the Crumpet Burger is the new flavor combo everyone needs in their life.


Fans are jumping at the chance to make it at home. Featuring two Original Recipe Fillets, sandwiched between three deliciously fluffy crumpets - toasted to perfection, topped with cheese and smothered in Sweet Chilli sauce. Crust us when we say it’s the best thing since sliced bread…

Want to give it a go? Head to your local KFC and ask very nicely for two succulent Original Recipe Fillets, two cheese slices and a dip pot of Sweet Chilli Sauce. Make sure to pick up some crumpets on the way home.

  • First toast your crumpets

  • Stack it to your liking

  • Slather in Sweet Chilli sauce

  • Tuck in!

About KFC:

In 1952 Colonel Harland Sanders opened the first KFC restaurant in Utah. Since then, his perfectly crafted Original Recipe chicken and its secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices has become famous all over the world, and today we have over 900 restaurants across the UK and Ireland.

The Colonel was all about doing things the right way. That means our chicken is delivered fresh from farm to restaurant in 48 hours. It’s prepared carefully by hand in-restaurant by trained cooks, using the very best chicken reared to strict welfare standards. In July 2019 we took the next big step in our welfare journey and signed up to the Better Chicken Commitment, a set of six criteria that have been designed to improve the lives of all chickens within the KFC supply chain, by 2026. That’s what makes our food so finger lickin’ good.

The right way also means serving fresh proper food, packed with flavour. So, we’ve worked hard to make nutritional improvements across our menu, so our fans have as much choice as possible, and we’ve committed to removing 20% of calories per serving by 2025.

The Colonel also believed in feeding promise, wherever it’s found. So that’s why we invest heavily in the development and careers of our 27,000 employees – we were the first restaurant to launch an honours degree. And since its 2015 launch, our KFC Foundation has paid out grants totalling £5 million to our charity partners who are passionate about developing and nurturing young people across the country.
