Toad in the hole is one of those good old fashioned suppers that kids (and big kids) love. Its also very easy to make, and cheap too.


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


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!
