Enchanted Forest Toad in the Hole

Toad in the Hole

About the Dish:

Toad in the Hole is a classic British dish that consists of sausages cooked in a Yorkshire pudding batter. The dish gets its name because the sausages peek out from the golden and puffed up batter, resembling toads poking their heads out of a hole. The sausages are first browned in a hot ovenproof dish, then the batter, made from flour, eggs, and milk, is poured over them. The dish is then baked until the batter is golden and crispy. Toad in the Hole is commonly served with onion gravy and vegetables, making it a hearty and satisfying meal.

Ingredient Quantity
8 sausages
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups beef broth

Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Place the sausages in an ovenproof dish and bake for 15 minutes, or until browned.
  • Step 2: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, eggs, salt, and black pepper until smooth to make the batter. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes.
  • Step 3: Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and cook until softened and lightly browned. Sprinkle the flour over the onions and stir to coat. Gradually whisk in the beef broth until smooth. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, or until the gravy has thickened.
  • Step 4: Remove the sausages from the oven and quickly pour the batter over them. Return the dish to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the batter is puffed up and golden brown.
