How to make traditional toad in the hole:
Despite its name, Toad in the Hole is in fact a traditional British dish which consists of Sausages cooked in a Yorkshire pudding batter. It had the advantage of being cheap and easily prepared at times when meat was very expensive. Obviously the quality of the sausages you use will have a significant impact on the flavor and as such we would recommend using locally sourced, organic sausages where possible.


1 1/2 cups plain flour
2 large eggs
1 pint milk (or half a pint of milk and half a pint of water)
8 sausages
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Arrange the sausages in a baking tin.
- Make a smooth batter by beating the eggs into the flour and gradually adding the milk.
- Pour the batter over the sausages and cook until risen and golden at 220 degrees centigrade (see temperature conversions) for about 30-40 minutes.
- Serve with onion gravy.
