Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.

  2. Put the 12 chipolatas in a 20 x 30cm roasting tin with 1 tbsp sunflower oil, then bake for 15 mins until browned.

  3. Meanwhile, make up the batter mix. Tip 140g plain flour into a bowl with ½ tsp salt, make a well in the middle and crack 2 eggs into it.

  4. Use an electric whisk to mix it together, then slowly add 175ml semi-skimmed milk, whisking all the time. Leave to stand until the sausages are nice and brown.

  5. Remove the sausages from the oven – be careful 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.

  6. Pour in the batter mix, transfer to the top shelf of the oven, then cook for 25-30 mins, until risen and golden.

  7. Serve with gravy and your favourite veg.

Very badly written recipe. It says to take sausages out, but doesn't say whether to put them back in.... I left them in the dish (even though it seemed a long time at a high temp), and they came out black as coal, completely burnt! I see that GoodFood does say in answer to someone's question that you should leave them in and pour the batter around, as I did. Not sure why 5 stars average when I see several people had the same issue, and have rated it 0 stars as a result.

Never been a fan of toad in the hole before but made this twice now and just love it. I add a tsp of mustard powder to the batter. Delicious!!

It was very nice but as others have mentioned, the sausages were over cooked. I used normal sausages and I dread to think how bad they would be if I had used the chipolatas in the recipe! I would make this again but I would probably only cook the sausages for around 5 minutes before I add the batter.

This is the best Toad in the hole recipe I've tried. Like some other reviewers I used 6 big sausages and fried them (in a dry pan) as I like them quite well brown, also then use that pan for red onion gravy. I added 1/2 tsp mustard powder to batter and halved the salt. Also added some fresh thyme leaves and rosemary sprigs. A quick impressive meal, my husband said it was like having a midweek roast!

Fab recipe! I've been trying to find the perfect toad in the hole recipe for years and never really been happy with what I've made! My husband actually did not stop saying how amazing it was!!! The only thing i did differently was use 8 normal sausages instead of chipolatas! Thanks for posting!!!
