Toad in the Hole

Postby JerBear » Sun Feb 03, 2013 4:01 am

Was thinking about my UK friends and decided to try my hand at toad in the hole. I didn't have cumberland sausages so subbed some of my basic brats.... Turned out very good...everyone loved it...

It's sausages cooked in the oven in a Yorkshire Pudding batter.
Curing is not an exact science... So it's not a sin to bin.

In this neck of the woods they call that a "one-eye". LOL

Interesting stuff.....thanks for the schooling...

I made this this morning using my Ginger & Sage sausage and this recipe;

Added some garlic salt & onion powder to the batter. Topped with some shredded cheese....

Not sure why the sausages didn't float to the top like the other pics I've seen. Also not really sure it matters.
Yummy stuff. It wont be a weekly item...but certainly will make it again. :D

(Puts on high pitched voice) What's the recipe today Jim!

I'll measure it next time, but my 'diet' version's roughly:
3oz plain flour (3-ish heaped tablespoons)
1 egg
about 7fl oz milk (semi-skimmed in this case)
S & P
(non-dieters can use 2 eggs)

Plus leftovers from Sunday dinner.

I mix the flour, eggs, and about ½ the milk and whisk till smooth, then add the rest of the milk. The mix wants to be the thickness of double cream. I used a silicone baking dish pre-heated until really hot in an oven set to 190°-200°C, before adding the mix; using silicone means that you don't need to add fat. If you cook it in a tin you'll need very hot lard/dripping to cook it in.

It's not low calorie by any means but the one in the picture, in a 20 cm (8 inch) tin, used about 2/5 of the mix - about 200 calories. To be honest, using half the mix would make a better job, the sides would be higher, but you'd be looking at 250 kcal. Note: calorie figures are 'ish'.

No...! Don't let him sing! Mind, at least you spared us the 'Unchained Melody'!

You know, I thought it odd that you'd asked for a Yorkie recipe!

The meat was just a bit of slow roasted (cheap) silverside from the local Makro. Not my favourite cut, or place to buy meat; I'd bought it to test a project that I didn't get around to (the story of my life!), so was just using it up.
