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…
