Easy Vegetarian Toad in the Hole
A big thank you to Clare from The Lazy Girls Guide to Cooking for sharing her recipe with us. This makes a lovely supper from very simple ingredients.
3 fluid ounces (fl oz) of Milk (semi skimmed or full fat)
75 grams (g) of Plain Flour
1 Large Egg
4 good sized quorn sausages
Salt and pepper
1 measuring bowl
1 large square oven proof dish
1 Frying pan
HOW TO COOK IT:
Firstly you will need to defrost your sausages if they are frozen- so not cook this with them still frozen.
You can then brown these off- if they are thicker butchers type sausages this is a good idea, but don’t over cook them, just brown the outside.
Switch the oven on to 220c/Gas Mark 7
Then take your bowl, and measure in the flour, egg and milk. You need to be pretty accurate with your measurements, so do use scales for this. Then, give it a really good stir to remove all the lumps and mix all the ingredients together. Sprinkle in a pinch of salt and pepper (black pepper is my favourite, I find white pepper a bit too peppery).
Once that’s gone like a thick batter, place the sausages in the oven dish- space them out so they aren’t touching. Then, simply pour the batter over the lot. Give it a tiny bit of a shake to make sure it’s all evenly spread.
You can at this point either place in a fridge for later, or place in the oven straight away.
Remember not to keep opening the oven door as you want the batter to rise- every time you open the oven it lets the heat escape.
This should take no longer than 20 minutes, less so for a fan assisted oven, but definitely no longer than 25 minutes.
Even better, the batter recipe (eggs/flour and milk) make terrific Yorkshire Puddings too!
