Toad in the Hole

After a sad failed attempt, i finally cracked the code on this dish! Juicy sausages with the crispiest and yummiest yorkshire puddings, creamy mashed potato and gravy, i made Benny a very happy boy today! This has easily became our favourite western dish! Something that made me very proud is that Benny told me that the only sausage and gravy that he would ever eat is cooked by me as it is the best he ever had. This is big coming from someone who has refused to eat both sausages and gravy all his life. He liked the gravy so much that he even went to get a refill for his gravy ❤

  2. Butter
  • Yorkshire Puddings
