This is the one. No fail, not heavy podge but yummy wonder A perfect toad in the hole . for me this means brown yummy sausages (or left over beef/pork/lamb), a light custary yorkshire pudding, crispy on the edges and risen and fluffy inside. Onions to add flavor. Many use onion gravy but i am a little bit of a heathen here..with this recipe i can enjoy all of it without needing lashings of gravy but of course it would be perfect on it. A brian turner recipe slightly tweaked by me. Its best known as an english dish but with canada';s british heritage its very popular here as well.
Do not be afraid of the proportions or the vinegar. I was, so used to heavier batters, more flour..and never with vinegar. Yet it helped lighten the pud and the batter was just perfect with the sausages..they even rose in the cooking.
made this for the 3rd time, and this time was wanting something even quicker so didn't use the onions or herbs, just browned the sausages in the baking dish while the batter sat. Also halved it and it was just as wonderful
