kissing the ‘toad’…

So tonight we took a culinary journey ‘across the pond’ and paid homage to my family roots…
For an interesting dinner, we enjoyed ‘toad-in-the-hole’… may sound unappealing to those unfamiliar with this lovely dish, but don’t worry no toads were harmed in the making of this meal.
The dish is quite simple to prepare, basically everything that would be in your pantry and freezer. To make the batter, 2 cups of flour, salt, six eggs and 1 1/2 cups milk are all combined and set aside. Then sausages [can be any you like] are panfried and browned. The batter is poured into a pretty hot pan of oil, the sausages then nestled into the batter and everything tossed in the oven to bake until puffy, crisp and golden. To go along with the ‘toad’ a beautiful, homemade onion gravy.
The flavors are wonderful and rich, yet not heavy at all, but rather almost light as a cloud!

at a low simmer…
