About this recipe: In England, this dish is a traditional favourite with kids. Use the best quality sausages, cook them in Yorkshire pudding batter. The little head of the sausage becomes the 'toad' peeking from its 'hole'.


Serves: 4 

  • 8 pork sausages
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 225g plain flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 250ml milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
  2. Pour the oil into the bottom of a baking dish, and arrange the sausages over it in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, eggs and half of the milk until smooth. Gradually mix in the rest of the milk until a smooth batter is achieved. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Remove the sausages from the oven, and ladle the batter over them until the sausages are 3/4 covered. Return to the oven, and bake for 35 minutes, or until the centre is risen and browned. Don't worry if the underside seems slightly soft, as this is normal.
