How to make it

  • Put the oven on REALLY high, e.g. 240C. Put two tablespoons of oil in a big flat dish (ceramic or metal is fine) and put that in the oven to heat up. Leave quite a bit of space between the dish and the top of the oven.
  • If your sausages are frozen, put them in the pan to start cooking now. You will need to turn them at some point.
  • Mix together eggs and milk with salt and pepper (I use a whisk). Set a timer for 15 mins and leave to stand.
  • If your sausages are unfrozen, put them in after 10 minutes is gone on the timer.
  • When the timer goes off, mix the flour into the egg/milk mixture until you have a smooth batter.
  • Next (this bit has to be fast - you want the oil to stay as hot as possible througout!) whip the dish out of the oven and pour the batter in over the sausages. Re-distribute the sausages so they're roughly evenly spaced and whack the dish back in the oven again pronto!
  • If you did it right, and the oil was hot enough, you would have seen the batter start to rise at the edges as soon as you poured the batter in. Do not stand and gaze at this phenomenon, you need that dish back in the oven. Lol
  • Set your timer again for 15mins, as it may well be done in this time if you have a good fan oven. Other ovens you may need to give it a bit longer. When it's done, your toad in the hole should be a giant and puffy thing of golden beauty. If it comes out a bit flat, don't worry, it will still taste yummy.
  • Bear your dish to the table triumphantly to the ooohs and aaaahs from your assembled diners and serve with gravy and peas or carrots.

    Lolaroba, I ALWAYS use Veggie sausages. Soy type 'fake meat' sausages work great, and better than the vegetable sausage kind probably would (I'm thinking the leek and cheese ones I buy sometimes).

    This looks like a wild recipe. I wonder if I can substitute some soy sausages as I don't eat meat. I think I'll give it a try.
