I normally serve this with steamed vegetables and a huge gravy boat of thick gravy.
(Sorry this is a really bad picture)
Toad In The Hole
4 tablespoons oil
8 large good quality sausages
285 ml milk
115 grams plain flour
a pinch of salt
Mix the batter ingredients together and put to one side. I let the batter stand for around 30 minutes in a cool place.
Heat oven to 180C. Put the oil into the baking dish and add sausages. Cook for 10 minutes until sausages are browned, turning occasionally. Then place the baking dish on the middle shelf of your oven and turn your oven to its highest setting (around 250C). Keep your eye on the sausages but you need to get the oil as hot as possible. At this point take the baking dish out of the oven, being very careful and working very quickly, pour your batter over the sausages. Warning the cold batter hitting the hot oil may make it bubble and possibly even spit a little. Put the tin back in the oven and close the door.
Don't open it for at least 20 minutes as the minute you open the oven the Yorkshire pudding mixture will flop. Remove from the oven when puffy, golden and crisp.
