Mustard Toad in the Hole

I've always loved toad in the hole, but never quite managed to get it right. The batter always goes too crunchy, or there doesnt seem enough batter.... just had never mastered it. I had a packet of sausages in the fridge which needed eating, and after doing a low-carb diet for a while, the last thing I wanted was them in all their sausagey glory, and wanted to disguise them as something delicious, so I checked out the BBC Good Food site for inspiration, and came across this recipe for Mustard Toad in the Hole.

  Serves 4 



Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the sausages and onion wedges in an ovenproof baking dish. Drizzle over 2 tbsp oil, season then cook for 20 minutes until everything is browned a little.   

While the sausages are cooking, put the flour and mustard powder in a bowl and season. Gradually whisk in the eggs and milk to make a batter. Pour into the hot dish with the sausages then cook for another 30-40 minutes until crisp and golden. [I did them for 30mins in my oven as it tends to get quite hot and found it the perfect amount of time]. 

I can honestly say that this is the nicest toad in the hole I have ever had the pleasure of eating. Absolutely gorgeous and went down a treat with the Little Man too. I shall definitely be adding this on to my rosta. So simple, yet so delicious 5/5.
