I don’t ever remember having toad in the hole before tonight. I’ve had sausages, mash, and Yorkshire puddings all together, just not cooked in the hole as such. So, this is Hunky Husbands recipe. It was absolutely fantastic. It is incredibly filling, so don’t do what I did and try to eat loads. I couldn’t move for about an hour; it was delightful.
To be honest, I’ve only just perfected my Yorkshire pudding. They’ve been terrible, too small, too big, too flat, weirdly puffed up and cakey. But, I’ve learned that the key is making sure the oil is super hot when you put them in. My first attempt at toad in the hole was the same. The batter rose, but everywhere. So there was no hole, it was a toad in the slightly odd sausage cake. Tasted fantastic…looked deformed. So, make sure your oil is hot!!
- 12 Sausages
- 6 eggs
- 300g flour
- 300ml milk
- Pinch Salt and pepper
- Cooking oil
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Add a good glug of oil to a large, deep baking tray, then add the sausages. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
While the sausages are cooking, whisk together the flour, eggs, seasoning, and milk in a large mixing bowl, until smooth. It’s ok to leave this for a while, while you wait for the oil to heat.
After 15 minutes the sausages should be cooking nicely and the oil should be sizzling or smoking. If it doesn’t seem dangerously hot, pop it back in the oven for 5 minutes.
Pour the batter mix into the pan, around the sausages and return to the oven. Don’t worry if you seem to lose the sausages or they move about a bit, they will find their way to a nice toad in the hole shape while they cook.
Bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown.
While baking prepare mash potatoes, vegetables and gravy to serve. We all absolutely love toad in the hole, Yorkshire puddings in general really. The Boy especially is obsessed with them so this is a big favourite.
A gorgeous, filling meal. We will definitely be having this a lot more.
