Culture Kids do England!
Toad in the Hole recipe (via Jamie Oliver) Yum!
• sunflower/canola oil
• 8 large good-quality sausages
• 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
FOR THE BATTER
• 1 1/4 cup milk
• 1 cup plain flour
• a pinch of salt
• 3 eggs
Mix the batter ingredients together, and put to one side.
Put just under ½ inch of oil into a baking pan, then place this on the middle shelf of your oven at its highest setting (475ºF). Place a larger tray underneath it to catch any oil that overflows from the tin while cooking. When the oil is very hot, add your sausages. Keep your eye on them and allow them to colour until lightly golden.
At this point, take the tin out of the oven, being very careful, and pour your batter over the sausages. Throw a couple of sprigs of rosemary into the batter. It will bubble and possibly even spit a little, so carefully put the tin back in the oven, and close the door. Don't open it for at least 20 minutes, as Yorkshire puddings can be a bit temperamental when rising. Remove from the oven when golden and crisp.
