Now that is officially autumn I decided we should celebrate with some traditional British comfort food. Nothing is more comforting that toad in the hole served with lashings of ketchup (for me) or lakes of gravy (for Hubby). We can both happily eat it with no other accompaniments. Although I made tonight’s toad in the hole, Hubby seems to make it better…even though we use the same recipe?!? Today’s sausages were the flavoursome Garlic & Black Pepper ones from Chantry. Sometimes I wrap bacon around the sausages and add onions while the sausages are cooking.
Toad in the hole
Serves 2-4..depending on how hungry they are!
100g/4oz plain flour
1/4 pt milk
1) Preheat oven to 220oc. Make a well in the middle of the flour and crack in eggs. Gradually beat in the milk. Season.
2) Place sausages in tin and drizzle with oil. Bake for 15-20 min, until beginning to brown.
3) Pour batter over sausages and cook for a further 25-30 min.
