Toad in the hole

This is a meal that is perfect for those busy mid week evenings as you can prepare the batter in advance to save time.

I always try to make twice the amount so that the kids can have a small portion with salad in their lunchbox the next day at school.

 Quarter pint (150ml) water
 Quarter pint (150ml) milk
 2 eggs
 4oz (115g) plain flour
 Pinch salt

 12 Good quality (at least 80%) pork sausages
1

Heat the oven to a high temperature 200c

2

Put all of the ingredients in a blender and whisk well until the batter is smooth and light. Leave this for as long as possible before cooking, ideally 2-3 hours and at least 30 minutes for the batter to rest

3

Put the oil in the roasting tin (just enough to cover the bottom) and place in the oven until really hot (starting to smoke)

4

Carefully remove the tray from the oven and lay the sausages in the oil immediately and straight after pour over the batter and replace back in the oven

5

Cook for at least 25-30 minutes without opening the oven door and letting the heat out

6

Serve with peas or your favourite green vegetables

Add some dried sage and chopped onion into the batter for an interesting savoury twist

Try to use the same oven tray for this dish every time and just wipe it clean. Like a wok, it will become seasoned over time.
