A British Classic - Toad-In-The-Hole

Such a basic basic meal - but such an overlooked British Classic. It's YEARS since I last made this and I'm now wondering why I've left it so long ! It's basically a yorkshire pudding batter with sausages baked in.

Simple ingredients, simple to prepare and quick to cook... I made mine in a silicone roasting tray which makes washing up afterwards a complete breeze. These do need supported on a metal baking tray.

3 x fresh medium / large sized eggs
3oz plain flour
225ml milk
3 tablespoons sunflower or vegetable oil
salt and pepper
favourite herbs
8 > 12 butchers sausages

preheat fan oven to 200deg C

put raw sausages in a roasting tray in the oven with the oil to brown for aobut 10 > 15 mins

Meanwhile, make the batter.

Whisk together milk, eggs, flour, salt, pepper and herbs (if using).

It's a glorious yellowy colour with the bright yolks from our own free ranging hens

When the sausages have started to get a bit of colour

Whisk eggs, milk, plain flour, salt, pepper and herbs together to combine

Pour the batter into the tray with sausages.

Bake in oven for about 15 mins until puffy and golden brown edges.

Serve with some homemade gravy, potatoes and veg of your choice.
