In last week’s five frugal things post I shared a photo of my posh toad in the hole and a couple of you have emailed to ask how I made it so I thought I’d share my recipe with you today.
Before I do though, I should probably warn you that it’s not all that posh! I’m not sure you could ever class a toad in the hole as posh to be honest but it’s cheap, filling and easy to make – we call it posh because of the addition of the red onions which really do add another dimension to the traditional version of toad in the hole.
How to make Posh Toad in the Hole
100g plain flour
1 large red onion (or 2 smaller ones)
Oil for cooking
- Turn your oven on as hot as it will go (mine goes to about 240 c).
- Add a generous amount of oil in the bottom of your baking tray.
- Chop your sausages into halves or thirds and add them to the baking tray along with some chopped red onion. I chop mine quite chunky for this.
- Pop the sausage and onion into the oven and get on with mixing the Yorkshire Pudding batter while that cooks away.
- The Yorkshire Pudding batter is super easy – just mix the flour milk and eggs until it’s smooth.
- When the sausages are about three quarters cooked, get the tray out of the oven and pour over your batter. You need to get it back in the oven as soon as possible as the hot oil and cold batter mix are what makes puffy, crispy puddings!
- Don’t be tempted to check on your toad in the hole for at least 15 minutes.
- When the Yorkshire Pudding is cooked through and looks crispy rather than soggy then you’re good to go!
