This recipe for toad in the hole is a traditional recipe using sausages and Yorkshire pudding mix.
Getting everything ready
- Make the Yorkshire pudding mix and let it stand for 1 hour.
- Grill or fry the sausages to obtain a nice even colour.
- Make the onion gravy and keep warm.
- Pre-heat the oven to 200°C (Gas Mark 6).
- Pour some oil into a shallow ovenproof dish, place it on a baking tray and put it in the pre-heated oven to heat. When the oil is hot, remove from the oven, arrange the sausages evenly in the dish and ladle in the pudding mixture and return to the oven. Bake for about 25–30 minutes, depending on the depth of the dish, until crispy and golden brown.
- When cooked, remove the toad in the hole from the oven. Hopefully, the pudding will have risen. Divide the toad in the hole between warmed plates, spoon over a little hot onion gravy and serve immediately.
- This toad in the hole is nice served with lovely creamed potatoes.
Toad in the hole – hints and tips
Try not to open the oven door until cooked as we don’t want draughts getting into the pudding mix.
Give the pudding room to rise — we don’t want it to stick to the roof of the oven!
