Bugs Bunny would love a Gloucester Crumble as they're packed to the brim with sources of Vitamin A, lot of carrots and corn.
A cousin to our popular Glastonbury and Shropshire Crumbles, they're made with the finest Double Gloucester cheese combined with buckwheat, carrots, sweetcorn, red onions, eggs, basil and oregano.
They can be eaten hot or at room temperature making them a nice change for an evening meal or lunch on the go.
We like to eat ours in the great outdoors with a picnic spread or with roast potatoes, lots of veggies and baked beans – yummy.

Buckwheat is a native of Russia and although it's often referred to as a wholegrain it is actually a herb, not a cereal grain. It's gluten free and another nutrition superpower helping to lower risk of high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Not only loved by Bugs Bunny– we love them too! They are a rich source of Vitamin A and carotenoids. They also contain B Vitamins, phosphorus, iodine and calcium and the phenol coumarin which helps prevent blood clotting and has anti-cancer properties.
Corn is a whole grain food, high in fibre low in fat, and contains two important carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, relatives of vitamin A that support Eye health. In fact, corn is the only grain that contains Vitamin A.
Basil is a warming, pungent restorative herb which helps restore your balance, especially for lung and stomach related complaints.
One of the most popular among culinary herb plants, oregano is native to the Mediterranean regions. The chemicals that give the herb its unique and pleasant smell are thymol, pinene, limonene, carvacrol, ocimene, and caryophyllene
Not only does oregano provide food flavour, there are also a substantial number of health claims associated with its potent antioxidants and anti-bacterial properties.
