Toad in the Hole

Toad in the hole to me is a total classic. I think it is the ultimate winter treat!

You will need:

  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 125g plain flour
  • 150ml milk mixed with 150ml cold water
  • 1 level tbsp grain mustard
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 pork sausages
  • lard
  • 100g of bacon for that cheeky added extra

Preparation Method:

  1. Whisk together the eggs, flour, milk, mustard and seasoning, beating out any little lumps of flour.
  2. Rest for 15 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
  4. Put the lard in a roasting tin and leave it in the oven until it is smoking.
  5. When the lard is very hot, add your sausages and bacon if you wish. Keep your eye on them and allow them to colour until lightly golden.
  6. When sausages are lightly golden pour the batter mix over the top.
  7. Place the tin back into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and crisp.

I would always serve this with an array of winter veggies; mash potatoes, carrots, peas and broccoli. Of course its not complete without a little onion gravy.
