  1. Heat oven to 240C/220C fan/gas 9. In a food processor, combine the flour, eggs, milk, mustard and some salt and pepper, blitz until smooth, then leave to rest for 30 mins.

  2. Pour the oil into a metal roasting tin about 30 x 23cm and 7.5cm deep. Brush the oil all over the sides and bottom, then place in the oven. When the roasting tin is very hot and smoking, place the sausages inside, evenly spread out, and cook for 5 mins.

  3. Give the rested batter a stir and pour into the really hot tin – take care as it may spit. Quickly sprinkle over the sage leaves and rosemary, then place in the middle of the oven. Do not open the door for 25 mins, then check – if needed, cook for a further 5-10 mins. Cook until puffed up and brown and the batter is completely cooked through. Serve straight from the dish.

Fantastic recipe. Ignore any bad reviews. Nice addition of mustard to the Yorkshire pudding, I added a tiny bit of garlic, which was nice. One of the best meals I've cooked, super easy as well!

Mess. Underbaked. Too much sage/rosemary.

I made this with an instant pudding mix I had on hand and it was quite delicious, I'm excited to try it again with the mix here, I'm sure it tastes even better!

Fantastic recipe! A really light batter bursting with flavour, definitely going to become my 'go to' recipe!

great yorkshire pudding mix, my pudding turned out really well, all fluffy and crispy. Enjoyed by all, will make again.

Excellent batter recipe. Worked first time. Very fluffy with crispy edges. I used chicken sausages and herbs that I had handy (oregano and thyme) so you needn't feel restricted to sage and rosemary. I will be making it again. Thanks!

Great recipie, worked perfectly first time - always a bit nervous about Toad in the Hole. Used low fat sausages, lovely and tasty. Will be trying with different flavour sausages - yummm

Very very tasty but also very rich. None of us could eat very much of it. Nevertheless we loved it.
