Step 1: You will need
- 6 sausages
- 120 g plain flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 ltr 0.25 litres milk
- 50 ml vegetable oil
- large bowl
- balloon whisk
- oven dish
Step 2: Cook the sausages
Pre-heat the oven to a temperature of 220ºc. Oil the oven dish, place the sausages in it and put them into the oven.
Step 3: Make the batter
To make the batter in which the sausages - or toads - will wallow, tip flour into a mixing bowl and add salt and seasoning to taste.
Now make a well in the flour and crack the 2 eggs into the bottom. Whisk the eggs into the flour, then carry on whilst slowly adding the milk, all the while being careful that no lumps appear. At the end, the mixture should be thick and smooth.
Step 4: Add the batter to the sausages
Back to the sausages. After 10 minutes of roasting, your toads will be nice and brown. Take the oven dish out, and pour the batter over them.
Now put the sausage and batter back in the oven for 20 minutes.
Step 5: Remove from the oven
If everything's gone according to plan, the batter will have risen nicely around the sausages. Only then does this dish deserve its name… because if the batter does not rise, Toad in the Hole becomes another dish entirely: Frog in the Bog.
Step 6: And serve
Accompany with green vegetables of your choice.
