We love an easy recipe and what I try to do is to make them as simple as possible while keeping the great taste of the dish.
All week I have been chatting with my boys and my OH to see what we shall make for Sunday dinner and we have decided on Toad in the Hole. It’s quite an English tradition so I am going to see what my OH thinks of it. My youngest son Little G has also made a vlog which you can watch and is also great if you want to get your little ones involved in cooking with one of their peers.
Here’s what you will need – Ingredients List:
4 fluid ounces of water
6 fluid ounces of milk
Half a teaspoon of mustard
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
And here’s how to make it:
Mix the eggs with the flour.
Add the water and stir in with a whisk lightly.
Add the milk and again stir in lightly being careful it doesn’t spill over the side of the bowl.
Add the mustard and whisk in.
Once it’s all mixed together into a smooth liquid then set aside for the mixture to rest.
Put the sausages in the ovenproof dish with the tablespoon of oil and cook for 20 minutes. They should let out a fair bit of oil which will join with the added oil.
One of the main points of this dish is that the oil should be really hot…if it’s not then the batter will not rise and lift out nicely.
Take the ovenproof dish out of the oven and pour over the batter and get it straight back in the oven for 30 minutes on gas mark 7.
When it’s risen and nicely browned then you’re ready to take out of the oven. We really love this meal served with onion gravy, mashed potatoes and peas. Brilliant for autumn and winter evenings.
Added tip – If you have any leftovers of the batter then it is delicious with a spoonful of clotted cream and jam for a sweet treat!
