Toad in the Hole

Decided to cook all of Frankie’s favourite meals this week whilst he’s recovering & especially with the darker nights there is nothing better than a toad in the hole!

It’s a wholesome inexpensive dinner and it’s so easy to make! I had the flour, milk & eggs in the cupboards already but the meal in total is well under £5 and makes at least x4 servings (x6-8 child’s portions).

Shopping List:-

  • X8 thick sausages (x12 chipolatas)
  • X3 eggs
  • 200g plain flour
  • 190ml semi-skimmed milk
  • X1 onion
  • *optional* herbs, salt & pepper

How to:-

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200c (fan assisted)
  2. Put the sausages in a casserole dish/roasting tin, drizzle with oil & cook for 10-15 minutes until brown
  3. Whilst sausages are browning tip flour into a mixing bowl and add all eggs and mix
  4. Gradually pour in the milk whilst mixing non stop until smooth
  5. *my Nan always instilled me to mix well by hand but an electric whisk is quicker*
  6. Leave to stand
  7. Thinly chop up your onion
  8. When browned, bring the sausages out and wait for the fat to stop sizzling
  9. Add the onions and pour in the batter mix
  10. Cook for 25-30 minutes (don’t open the oven once in, this will cause the batter to deflate!)
  11. Serve with mash potato & your favourite vegetables, we had carrots & runner beans with gravy 👌🏼😋
