Toad in The Hole (Sausages cooked in Yorkshire pudding)


I made this dish recently its a traditional British dish and one of my childhood favorites, I always order it when I see it on the menu back home. Its basically sausages cooked in yorkshire pudding. No one really knows the exact origin of the strange name could be that the sausages look like toads peaking out out a hole, thats what I thought as a child. 

Ingredients:
  • one pack of your favorite sausages
  • some gravy about a cup
  • 4-5 small potatoes to make mashed potatoes
  • a knob of butter to add to mashed potatoes
  • a little milk for mashing potatoes
  • 4 oz of plain flour
  • a pinch of salt 
  • 1/2 an onion chopped
  • about 1-2 cups of milk
  • one egg
Method:

  1. heat the oven to 350 add the sausages with a little olive oil and onion and bake for 30 minutes
  2. meanwhile boil the potatoes and mash
  3. for the yorkshire pudding mix the flour, milk and egg with a dash of salt until you get a pancake like batter
  4. then remove the sausages from the oven and add the yorkshire pudding mix to the oven proof dish and bake a further 25-30 minutes
  5. serve with vegetables, mashed potatoes and vegetables
What's the strangest name of a dish you have heard of?
