Following on our Yorkshire pudding post last week, we thought it made sense to share our Toad in the Hole recipe. Known over here as Pigs in Blankets, this is a simple dish that’s perfect for this time of year.
Toad in the Hole
Introduction from our cookbook… “In England this is a real “school dinner” meal. At boarding school ours was very stodgy and thick, more like pigs in a mattress. We like it that way but we we also like the correct way, which is light and fluffy, with a little stodginess in the middle but cruncy of the outside.”
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 recipe Yorkshire Pudding
- Preheat the oven to 375F.
- Pour the oil into a small roasting pan or ovenproof dish. Add the sausages and coat them with the oil.
- Bake the sausages for 10-15 minutes, until they begin to brown and the oil is really hot.
- Give the pudding batter a stir and pour it over the sausages. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until risen and crisp around the edges.
