Toad in the Hole
1/4 cup of bacon dripping
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, well-beaten
1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Fry sausages and lay them in the batter. Bake as for yorkshire pudding:
Temp: 450º F Time: 10 - 15 min. If you use a glass pie plate turn
the heat down 25°F.
Combine a well-beaten egg and milk; beat till light. Gradually beat in
sifted flour and salt; beat with dover beater till smooth. Let stand 30
Put about 2 tablespoons bacon dripping into pan or divided up between
6 large muffin tins or into an 8"x8" pan. Heat in oven, make
sure you watch pan as it will start to smoke! Pour batter into hot pan;
and lay in your sausages. Serves 4.
The trick is the hot fat and the hot oven. Don't keep opening the oven
to check. Serve immediately as it will deflate as it gets cold. Pour nice
beef gravy over top.
