Recipe – Toad in the Hole

I am a little bit obsessed with Yorkshire puddings at the moment. Jack loves them – I’m sure he’d have them with every meal! I thought I’d sneak this in before the summer came as it’s a great, cheap family meal perfect for cold days.

To feed 4-5, you will need:

  • 10-12 sausages, Cumberland preferably
  • 3 small red onions, sliced
  • 135g plain flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 270ml milk
  • Freshly ground pepper and salt

Heat the oven to 180 degrees.

Make the batter first. Put the flour, eggs and a shake of salt into a bowl. Slowly add the milk, whisking until you have a smooth batter. Place in the fridge.

Place the sliced onions across a deep-sided roasting tin and place the sausages on top. Place in the oven for 30 minutes. Shake the tin a couple of times so the sausages cook evenly.

Just before the 30 minutes is up, take the batter out of the fridge and whisk again. Take the tin out of the oven and pour over the batter, putting it in the oven straight away. Turn the oven up to 240 degrees. Bake for ten minutes, turn the oven down to 210 degrees and bake for another ten minutes.

Serve with gravy, mash and greens.
