Why Kim, thank you. You are such a deliverer of good looking meals that is quite a compliment to receive.
KA – I’d love some directions for your toad in the hole – it is the best looking version I’ve ever seen!
It started as a recipe for popover batter from Joy of Cooking but it morphed a bit due to childhood memories, and preferences. Costco sausages, baked in the pan (with a little bacon grease to start them off & keep them from sticking), til partially cooked - maybe 10 min at temp, poked the sausages to release a bit more grease.
Made the batter in the meantime. Added Coleman's dry prepared mustard and thyme to the flour before mixing in the liquids.
Poured the batter into the hot pan, around the sausages, and baked until done (by eye and nose).
I'll look up JOC measurements, temps, times.
Thank goodness baked things smell done. The munchkin is a master of it. I didnt trust her, and I think it was a bit overcooked.
If you are interested, BBC GoodFood (online) has a recipe for onion gravy to go with the toad.
