Toad in the Hole

This is a classic British (Yorkshire?) dish that we’ve recently started making again. It is easy enough that my 9 year old is able to make with little intervention. (BTW, the American version of this dish is completely unrelated.)

  • 1 ½ cups of flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8-10 sausages (or “bangers” from Wholefoods)

Grease a large wide casserole dish and place in the oven to preheat at 425°F. In a large mixing bowl, make a well in the flour and add the eggs. Stir in as much flour as you can to make a paste and then slowly add milk whilst mixing in more of the flour. You should have all the flour mixed in with half the milk used at which point you can break up any lumps by whisking the paste. Gradually mix in the remaining milk. Set the batter aside.

In a frying pan, brown the bangers on all sides.

Once the casserole dish and oven have reached 425°F, quickly arrange the bangers in the dish and pour all of the batter over them. Place back in the oven and cook for 25-35 minutes.
