Toad in the Hole

Now, I’ve mentioned before that I don’t really eat meat. I still don’t.  I especially don’t eat sausages. I just can’t, they make me vomit. And you don’t really need to know that.

I do love toad in the hole though. Although not made with sausages. Obviously. I know that for many people it’s not toad in the hole without sausages, but according to wikipedia, a recipe from 1861 doesn’t mention sausages, but recommends using bits and pieces of any kind of meat, bought at the end of the day when it is cheapest. Seems that those of us who go supermarket shopping late at night for the bargains aren’t being as innovative as we think!

I make my toad in the hole using the large flat mushrooms, and rub them with oil, crushed garlic and some dried herbs before popping in the oven for 5 mins, to heat up the dish and start cooking the ‘shrooms. After that, the batter gets poured over. My batter comes from my excellent student cookbook (£5.24 from Amazon) and is made with 2 eggs, 4 oz plain flour and 14floz milk, whisked together. It’s never failed me, and the husband loves it.
