Happy Egg's toad in the hole

© Happy Eggs


  • 6 pork sausages
  • A drizzle of vegetable oil
  • 100g plain flour
  • Generous pinch of salt
  • Generous pinch of white pepper
  • 2 happy eggs
  • 60ml water, cold
  • 100ml full-fat milk


1 Lay the sausages in a small roasting tin, drizzle with oil and place in a preheated oven at 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 for 10 minutes.

2 Add the flour, salt and pepper to a bowl, make a well in the middle of the flour and break both eggs into it.

3 Using a hand whisk, mix the eggs with the flour starting slowly from the centre. Once the eggs are combined, gradually add the water, mixing to a thick paste. Finally, add the milk, continually mixing with the hand whisk until the batter is smooth

4 When the sausages are just starting to brown in the oven, take them out, turn the oven up to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6, pour the batter in with the sausages and return them to the oven for a further 20 minutes.

5 When cooked, it will have risen and be golden brown and crispy on top. Serve immediately with an onion gravy.
