What we're making
Sausage & Squash Toad-in-the-hole. A perfect way to introduce your family to more vegetables using this family classic. Can be ready in 15 mins on a school night and budget friendly especially if you use frozen butternut squash. Serve with broccoli and peas.
What you'll need
2tbsp olive oil
450g packet of sausages
500g peeled and chopped butternut squash ( or frozen which is already prepared )
2 red onions, quartered and sliced
100g plain flour
1tbsp sea salt
Roasting tray, 30cm x 20cm
Large mixing bowl
How to do it
1. Preheat the oven to 200C. Pour the oil into roasting tray and brush sides to grease. Add the sausages, squash and onions and cook for 15 mins.
2. Meanwhile make a batter. Put the eggs, flour, mustard, salt and milk in a large mixing bowl and whisk.
3. Turn the squash, onions, and sausages. Carefully pour in the batter and cook for 30 more mins until batter has fluffed up, golden and shrinking away from the sides of the roasting tin. Slice into wedges, serve with broccoli and gravy and enjoy.
The tip to making a really good Toad-in-the-hole is to get the batter into a very hot roasting tray and back into the oven as quickly as possible. Don't open the oven until its time to get it out.
