Princely Toad in the Hole

Toad in the Hole, it’s classic British grub and for me, it’s definitely a dinner time staple. As long as the sausages are good quality and you get the oven nice and hot you can’t really go wrong. I’ve fancied it up a bit though, why have a toad when you can have a prince?

You will need; 

sunflower oil

8 good quality sausages

100g plain flour

2 eggs

50g grated parmesan cheese

250ml skimmed milk

pinch of salt

handful of sundried tomatoes

The Method;

Pre heat your oven to 200 c, add three table spoons of oil to a small roasting tin and place in the oven until hot

Mix the flour, salt, parmesan and eggs together and then slowly add your milk until the batter resembles the thickness of double cream. Set aside

Get your tray out of the oven being Very careful, the oil is going to be extremely hot and will probably be spitting at you like a peeved alpaca.

Carefully place your sausages in the tin and cook on the middle shelf until they start to turn brown

Once they start to colour, remove from oven, add some sundried tomatoes to the tin (get them hugging the sausages), then pour on the batter and immediately put back in to the oven for 20-30 minutes. The batter needs to rise and become crisp around the edges and golden.

Once the batter is added to the tin and you close the oven door remember to keep it closed or it wont rise, and nobody likes a soggy, flat Yorkshire pud!

For a Summer dinner time, serve alongside salad with a honey and mustard dressing; 3tbs olive oil, 1tbs whole grain mustard, 1tbs clear honey

Or, serve with a dollop of mushy peas! Mmm, Mmm!

    • In that case, it’s a must! Also, little Yorkshire puddings with a sun-dried tomato in each is good with a roast 😉 Thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to comment 🙂

  1. Toad in the hole is one of my all time favourite things to eat and is, frankly, ashamedly shunned by too many pubs and restaurants. 😉 I have to ask though, how do the sundried tomatoes go with gravy? It’s a lovely idea!

    • I know, i wish it was on more menu’s too 🙂 Oh well, they’ll soon work it out! I must admit, I have only used the parmesan and tomato combo without gravy so far, but i should imagine that a nice onion gravy would work quite well with the flavours 🙂 I’ll be making another one this week and shall use gravy and give an update! Thanks for stopping by and commenting, it’s much appreciated 😀
