Toad in the Hole


Toad in the Hole is the ultimate in British comfort food. Glorious Yorkshire puddings and sausage – what could be finer on a cold windy night? Nearly everyone I know gets excited at the prospect of a crispy Yorkshire pudding.

Best served with butter laden mashed potatoes and rich onion gravy with your feet up in front of the fire! I make my Yorkshires in a muffin tin – making them super crispy and portion sized.

Use the best quality sausages you can get your hands on and ensure your oil is super hot and they will come out perfectly.

Toad in the Hole

Serves 4

6 Good Quality Pork Sausages
1 1/2 Cups Plain Flour
1 1/2 Cups Milk
3 Eggs
Sunflower Oil
Sea Salt

1) Pre heat the oven to 220C. Fill the bottoms of a 12 cup muffin tray with a little sunflower oil. Place in the oven to pre heat for at least 10 minutes.
2) Meanwhile, brown the sausages in a large frying pan on a medium heat for around 5-10 minutes. Remove from the pan and cut in half.
3) Make the Yorkshire Pudding Batter by combining the flour, milk and eggs with a little salt and whisk well – try to incorporate as much air as possible into the mixture.
4) Remove the muffin tray from the oven and quickly pour the batter amongst the 12 cups. Place a halved sausage in each cup and return to the oven.
5) Cook for around 20 minutes or until well browned. Remove from the oven and allow to cool a little.
