Saucepan Kids cooking mid week meals Toad in the hole

 Quarter pint (150ml) water
 Quarter pint (150ml) milk
 2 eggs
 4oz (115g) plain flour
 Pinch salt
 Olive oil (or lard or dripping to be traditional!)
 12 Good quality (at least 80%) pork sausages

Heat the oven to a high temperature 200c


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


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


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


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


Serve with peas or your favourite green vegetables
