I think you call them English muffins in the States..
Don't know why you don't just call them crumpets..
They're dirt cheap in England but here they're a rip-off..
English muffins are different. According to Wikipedia, "[crumpets] differ from the English Muffin, which is cooked on both sides, in that the dough is usually more moist to start with, so that a muffin ring may be required to hold the batter's shape." and also: "The crumpet should not be confused with the sweeter English muffin."
Also they appear to be eaten differently, apparently people just slap some butter on a crumpet and eat it, we eat english muffins with jelly or jam mostly, but also we make eggs benedict, but the best thing to do is melt cheese over them.
