Toad in the hole is a traditional British dish. Its made with sausages in a Yorkshire pudding batter.
I Know it has the weirdest name right. ''Toad in the Hole''. The dish resembles a toad sticking its head out of a hole. That is why it has the name.
Here i will share with you my gluten free recipe. When i made mine i divided it into different dishes then baked them but i will give you a recipe that will fit in a 20 x 25-cm/8x 10-inch dish which should serve atleast 4.
Its usually served with vegetables and onion gravy, But i like to have mine with mash and gravy but you can have yours with whatever you like.

- pinch of salt and pepper
- 2 eggs beaten

- 450g/1 lb Good quality Gluten free sausages

Preheat the oven to 220*C/425*F/Gas mark 7.
To make the batter, sift the flour, salt and pepper into a mixing bowl.
Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and half the milk.
Carefully stir the liquid into the flour until the mixture is smooth.
Gradually beat in the remaining milk.
Leave to stand for 30 minutes.
Grease your tin then prick the sausages and place them in the dish.
Sprinkle over the oil and cook for 10 minutes, until they are beginning to colour and the fat has started running and the sausages are sizzling.
Remove from the oven and quickly pour the batter over the sausages.
Return to the oven and cook for a further 35-45 minutes, until the batter is risen and golden brown. Serve immediately.
