  1. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and paprika with seasoning. Dip each crumpet into the egg mixture on both sides, then place into a hot, buttered pan. 
  2. Cook crumpets for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. While the crumpets are cooking, pan fry or oven cook the bacon until crisp. 
  3. Place 2 crumpets on each plate. Spread with pesto, then top with avocado slices and bacon. Serve with rocket and a generous drizzle of aioli.
