A Healthier Toad-in-the-Hole

Though I always stress the presentation of food, here is an exception: Toad-in-the-Hole, a classic British supper that consists of Yorkshire pudding and sausages.  Not the most attractive meal but you will be hooked and the family will ask for it by name.  It is also one of the easiest meals to make when time is short.

As always, we use chicken sausage to cut of the majority of the fat in this recipe.  Goes well with vegetarian baked beans or roasted potatoes.

  • 1 1/2 cup of plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb of good-quality sausage (we always use chicken)
  • salt and pepper

Place your baking dish in the oven with some vegetable oil and pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Sift flour into a bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper. Make a well in the center of the flour. Whisk the eggs and the milk into the center of the well in the flour, gradually to smooth out lumps. Cover and let stand 30 minutes.

Place the sausages into the preheated baking dish and return to the oven to brown for about 10 minutes, turning once.

Pour the batter over the sausages and return to oven. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the batter is risen and golden. Serve at once.

Serves 4-6
