A fair few of us seem to have been mentioning, cooking, and pairing with Toad in the Hole recently.
What recipes are people using? What additions do you make? What are your favourite pairings?
For two people I tend to go for 6 sausages, 140g plain flour, two eggs and 175ml of milk and some sunflower oil.
Make the batter (whisking everything batter-y together) and leave to rest. Heat the oven, dish and oil to 220. Once everything is hot put the sausages in and cook them for 15 minutes then add the batter and cook for another 25ish minutes. Serve with gravy and veg (I like kale/dark greens).
Someone here (I can’t remember who sorry!) suggested adding some black pudding, which I am going to try next time I make it, but normally I am reasonably purist in my toad in the hole. I did once debate making fusion with another house favourite of sausage and plum tray bake (but very quickly dismissed that idea!).
Wine wise I usually go for something Northern Spanish or Southern French with plenty of Garnacha/Grenache, but as mentioned in @Brentw1’s post, I also like unoaked chardonnay, which cuts through everything really well.
