Toad in the Hole

Best toad recipe here, secret being the oven must be hot, use an ovenproof frying pan and only have the batter a couple of cm deep in the middle of the pan. This will ensure a well risen, crispy side and cooked slightly soft bottom.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 large sausages, spicy or Cumberland
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 115g plain flour
  • ½ pint milk (300mls)
  • salt and freshly milled black pepper
