Unadorned Toad-in-the-Hole step by step
Sieve the flour into a bowl. Season and mix together. Make a hole in the middle of the seasoned flour..
Add the eggs and incorporate into the flour with a balloon whisk. Then progressively add the milk until all the ingredients are mixed together into a lump-free thickish batter..
Rest the batter (best in the fridge) for at least 1 hour but ideally a few hours or even overnight..
When you’re ready to cook, pre-heat oven to Gas Mark 5 or electric equivalent (Circotherm 160C) then melt the butter in a roasting dish and cook the sausages for 20-25 minutes, turning two or three times, until the sausage skins are lightly browned all over..
Turn the heat up to Gas Mark 8 or electric equivalent (Circotherm 190C). Whisk the rested, chilled batter and pour the mixture into the roasting dish. Cook for 30-35 minutes, until the batter has risen and is a nice “Yorkshire Pudding” colour but not burnt..
Enjoy on its own or with the accompaniments of your choice..
Because I don't like my eggs runny I covered the pan with a lid to help cook the top of the egg some.
We sat out in the patio.
The food was great and the service was wonderful.
