Toad-In-The-Hole-1

Toad In The Hole

Toad in the Hole is a magical way to turn seemingly meagre ingredients into a delicious meal. Though the recipe suggests 90ml milk and 90ml beer, you can of course use all milk – we just wanted to give you the suggestion for next time you’re making an adults-only meal.

Serve with the classic gravy, mash and peas combo, or a tasty salad.

Serves 4
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil, beef dripping or lard
  • 8 sausages
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g plain flour, sifted
  • 90ml fresh milk
  • 90ml dark beer
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
To serve:
  • Gravy
  • Mashed potato
  • Peas

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan/gas mark 7. Put half of the oil, dripping or lard in a roasting tin and place in the oven to heat up until very hot.

  2. Heat the remaining fat in a pan over a medium heat. Brown the sausages on all sides.

  3. Place the eggs in a large bowl and beat until thick. Beat in the flour and milk bit by bit until smooth, then stir in the beer and mustard. Leave the batter to sit for 15 minutes.

  4. Once the sausages are browned all over and the batter has rested, take the roasting tin from the oven. Immediately pour in the fat from the sausage pan, followed by the batter, which should sizzle as it hits the tin. Add the sausages, spacing them out evenly, and return the roasting tin to the oven.

  5. Bake the toad for 35 minutes or until the batter is golden brown and puffed up. Serve immediately with gravy, mash and peas.
