The boy wanted toad in the hole for tea.
For people who are like ‘WTF is a Toad in the Hole?’ well, it is sausages (typically meat ones, but I don’t eat meat) in batter. It is a comforting meal. It is completely impractical for summer. I am very hot now.
All you need is a batter recipe, and if you want to be like me you add dried rosemary, sage and thyme to the flour before mixing the batter.
Cook the sausages first in a bit of oil in an oven dish. The hot oil is the key to success as when the sausages are cooked you pour the batter mix over them and the hot oil makes it all good. Don’t ask me why. Science, cooking science, that’s why.
Eat with many, many vegetables and gravy.
