It has been a grim couple of days weather wise so I'm breaking out the comfort food! My Mum bought me a new pan from Paris which is the perfect size to make toad in the hole for two! I made a delicious toad in the hole with onion gravy to accompany it and served it with courgettes, carrots and beans.
Toad in the Hole (from Eat Like a Girl)
50g plain flour, sifted
pinch of salt
150ml whole milk
Whisk together the salt, egg, milk and flour until there is no lumps and leave aside for an hour.
Preheat your oven to 200C and lightly roast the sausages in a little oil / fat until they are starting to brown.
Remove the sausages and add more fat, it should cover the whole of the bottom of the pan (or you won’t get a nice crisp bottom). Heat in the oven then add the sausages and pour in the batter until it comes half way up the sausages.
Roast for 20 minutes, in white time the pastry will puff up and crisp. Serve with gravy.
