Toad in the Hole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Alli46

I found this on Jamie Oliver's website and it is amazing, I have simplified his recipe but the recipe itself makes a batter that touches the top of your oven.

I made this the other night. I have to say, I've tried a few TITH recipes on this website (my mum measures by eyesight - not helpful!) and I like this one the best. The flavour is a little richer and it rises better. I let the batter rest for a bit. Not on purpose, I was waiting on the sausages, and it worked brilliantly. Thanks for posting!

  1. Mix the batter ingredients together and put to one side. You can add herbs such as thyme or rosemary to the batter if you wish.
  2. Put a little sunflower oil in a baking tray, then place on the middle shelf of your oven set to it's highest temperature. Add the sausages and allow them to colour slightly, this will take 10 mins or so.
  3. At this point, take the tin out of the oven and pour the batter over the sausages. Don't open the oven door for at least 20 minutes but keep an eye on your toad after this point. It is cooked when golden brown and crisp.
  4. The secret to a good toad in the hole is a very hot pan when you pour in the batter.
  5. I have made this often with low calorie sausages to lower the calories and it tastes wonderful. I serve it with mashed potatoes, any vegetables you like and gravy.
