Toad in the Hole is a classic, and a great way to get your children eating vegetables they may not normally ‘opt’ for.

There’s something about the yorkshire pudding that makes children wolf down anything along with it, especially with a good gravy.

So here it is; you will need:

12 good sized pork sausages (cumberland or lincolnshire are best)
1 red onion
Approx 230 to 350g of batter mix
1 medium sized egg
1 tbsp chopped thyme (or dried if you can’t get fresh)

Preheat your oven to 220 degrees. Pour a good glug of sunflower oil into a roasting tray and place it inside for around five minutes.

Meanwhile….

Put 400ml of cold water into a mixing bowl, combine it with the egg and the batter mix and whisk thoroughly (if you don’t have a whisk, a fork will do fine). Add some salt and pepper and the thyme.

Chop your onions length ways, forming large slices. Remove the roasting tray from the oven, pour in your batter mixture. Place the sausages and onions in, taking care to spread everything out.

TIP: If your tray is too small, consider putting everything into two trays instead.

Put the tray back into the oven for 45 to 50 minutes. Resist the urge to open the oven, as this can stop the yorkshire pudding (batter mix) rising properly.

Check to make sure the yorkshire pudding has risen properly, using either the oven light or by shining your phone light through the window.

If golden brown and crispy on top, serve with mash and peas or any seasonal vegetables. We had ours with corn on the cob and peas!
