Sausage & Apple Toad in the Hole

Serves 4 (definitely not 2!)

Prep time 5 mins / cook time 25mins

This is a low fat, and easy to make dish and is great served with steamed veg & a little gravy.

1 tbsp sunflower oil

4 half fat or veggie sausages

50g plain flour

150ml skimmed milk

2 tsp wholegrain mustard

1 egg

1 apple, quartered, cored & sliced


Heat oven to 240 / gas 9

Brush a 4-hole Yorkshire pudding tray with oil then place in the oven to heat

Brown the sausage all over in a pan over a high heat for 5 mins making sure they don’t burn

Remove from heat & cover to maintain heat

Tip the flour into a large bowl, season & make a well in the centre.

Whisk the milk, mustard & egg together, then pour a third of the mix into the well. Gradually draw the flour into the milk to form a paste, then whisk in the rest of the milk to make a smooth batter.

Cut the sausage in half with a pair of scissors.

Remove the pudding tray from the oven, add the sausage & apple to each mould then pour the batter over.

Bake for 20 mins until risen, crisp & golden.

Serve with carrot & swede mash or sweet potato mash & fresh steamed veg.
