Toad in a hole for Boxing Day
Christmas falls on a Friday this year, so that makes Saturday, I think we call that second Christmas?, but the day after Christmas for most in the United Kingdom, traditionally is boxing day. I have been fortunate enough to celebrate a couple of Christmases and New year’s in the United Kingdom, in a little part of the world where there was a town called Ledbury, this is a quiet sleepy little town wonderfully preserved, and truly a delight. On boxing day they used to have Fox hunts and the Morris men came out and danced, that is quite a sight to behold. I learned and fell in love with a lot of British foods while I was over there, but one of the foods I never had while I was there is what I present to you today, it is called “toad in a hole” it’s basically a Yorkshire pudding poured around almost cooked sausages, And then you cook it for about 45 minutes longer.
Preheat oven 400f. 1 Cup of flour, 1 cup of skim milk, two eggs, salt pepper onion, mushroom, whatever, grease the pan. Cook the sausages first in the pan by themselves for about 15-20 minutes, then pour the mixed batter over them and bake for about 45 more minutes.
