Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.
Put the sausages in a 20 x 30cm roasting
tin with the oil, then bake for 15 mins
Meanwhile, make up the batter mix.
Tip the flour into a bowl with the salt,
make a well in the middle and crack
both eggs into it. Use an electric
whisk to mix it together, then
slowly add the milk, whisking all
the time. Leave to stand until the
sausages are nice and brown.
Carefully remove the
sausages from the oven
– watch because the fat will be sizzling
hot – but if it isn’t, put the tin on the hob
for a few mins until it is. Pour in the
batter mix, transfer to the top shelf of
the oven, then cook for 25-30 mins, until
risen and golden. Serve with gravy and
Sam’s favourite veg – broccoli.
