Crossword Genius

Consume in one attempt (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

eat

Here is my best explanation:

'consume' is the definition.

(eating is a kind of consuming)

'in one attempt' is the subsidiary indication.

'in' indicates a hidden word.

'eat' is hidden in the letters of 'one attempt'.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for eat that I've seen before include "Do cats - bats? Do bats - cats? (Alice in Wonderland)", "Break bread", "Bit, chew and swallow", "Consume for tea", "Munch", "Consume (food)", "Use a knife and fork", "Corrode", "Partake of" and "Bite, chew and swallow".)
