6 – 8 Trelawney Traditional Pork Sausages

1 tablespoon of good quality oil

4 free range eggs

250ml Cornish milk

Zest of half a lemon

Small bunch of fresh thyme

Salt and pepper to taste

Method Toad in the Hole Recipe

Preheat the oven to around 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6.

While your oven is heating get some colour on the Trelawney Traditional sausages over a moderate heat in a lightly oiled frying pan. Take off the heat after a few minutes as the sausages will cook in the batter in the oven later on.

Line the base of your baking dish and arrange the sausages to fill a single layer and scatter your sprigs of fresh thyme between the sausages.

Mix together your flour, eggs and half the milk until left with a smooth batter. At this point add the lemon zest along with the salt and pepper.

Take the batter and pour over the sausages until around ¾ are covered. Bake in the oven for around 35 minutes to 40 minutes depending on your oven. The toad in the hole will be ready to eat when centre is brown and risen.

We suggest serving this toad in the hole recipe with garlic roasted potatoes and onion gravy – completing a dish that will warm your heart as much as your belly on a cold night.
