Toad in the Hole with Onion Gravy

Toad in the Hole with Onion Gravy

Posted 2013-02-04 by Sandra Lawsonfollow
There is no satisfactory explanation as to how Toad in the Hole acquired its name, but what does it matter when a dish tastes as good as this one? The toad takes about 5 minutes to prepare and another 45 to cook. You need to preheat the oven to 200& #8304 ;/Gas 6.



Ingredients (for the toad)

A tbsp or 2 of oil
6 sausages or 8 chipolatas – I find plain the best, but it’s up to you
75g plain flour
1 egg
130ml semi-skimmed milk
Salt and pepper to taste



Method

  • Put the sausages into a lightly oiled roasting tin, approx 28cm x 18cm, and brown them for about 10 minutes, turning from time to time so that they brown evenly.

  • While they are browning prepare the batter. Sieve the flour into a bowl with some salt and pepper, make a well in the centre, break in the egg and mix, then add the milk and beat with a balloon whisk until there are no more lumps.

  • Once the sausages have started to colour, pour the batter over and around them and put the tin back in the oven to cook for about 35 more minutes.

  • Ingredients (for the onion gravy)

    1 tbsp oil
    2 medium onions, sliced
    A pinch of caster sugar
    10g plain flour
    500ml beef stock



    Method

  • Pour a generous glug of oil into a medium size frying pan and heat.

  • Add the onions, stirring frequently until soft, then add a pinch of sugar turn down the heat and cover the pan with a lid for about 5-10 minutes to caramelise.

  • Check once or twice to make sure they don’t burn, stir in the flour, and finally add the stock.

  • Give everything a good stir and leave to cook for about 5 minutes.

  • My preference is to serve this with creamy mashed potatoes and baked beans.
