For me there is no other food that says "Great English Dish", than Toad In The Hole served with mash potato and a lovely rich onion gravy. The recipe below is just a lovely plain one, but you can tweak it to your tastes.


Serves: 4 

  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 300ml water, milk or beer
  • a twist of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil or lard
  • 6-8 sausages of your choice

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a hollow in the centre and add the eggs.
  2. Mix whilst gradually adding the liquid. Use a whisk to beat out any lumps of flour.
  3. Leave the batter to stand, the longer you can leave it the better, I personally make my batter the night before and then leave in the fridge overnight.
  4. Heat the oven to 220 degrees C. Heat the lard or cooking oil in a high sided roasting tin, add the sausages and cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Place the roasting tin over a high flame until the fat smokes (the pan and oil must be very hot), pour in the batter and return to the oven. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes and serve.
