Type of cooking:  Oven
Preparation time: 900 minutes
Cooking time: 1500 minutes
Ingredients (for 4 people) :

    4 teaspoons vegetable oil
    8 pork sausages
    110g (4oz) plain flour
    1 large egg
    300ml (1/2 pint) milk
    4 spring onions, finely chopped
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary or thyme
    4 heaped teaspoons Bisto Favourite Gravy Granules
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 220°C / fan oven 200°C / Gas Mark 7.

2. Put a teaspoonful of vegetable oil into each of 4 individual baking dishes (metal ones are best for batter). Put 2 sausages into each one, then bake for 6-7 minutes while you make the batter.

3. Put the flour, egg and milk into a large mixing bowl and add a pinch of salt. Beat with a whisk to make a smooth batter, then add the spring onions and rosemary or thyme. (You could make the batter in a blender or food processor if you prefer).

4. Pour or ladle the batter into the piping-hot baking tins, returning them to the oven as quickly as possible for best results. Bake for 22-25 minutes, until the batter is puffed-up and golden brown.

5. Just before serving, make the gravy. Sprinkle the Bisto Gravy Granules into a jug and add 280ml (1/2 pint) boiling water, stirring until thickened and smooth. Serve with the “toads”.

Advice: Try not to open the oven door while the toads are cooking – or else the batter may not rise. For a vegetarian version use meat-free sausages, though bake for just 3-4 minutes before adding the batter. Make the gravy with Bisto Vegetable Gravy Granules. Remember, to make thicker gravy just use extra granules. While the toads are in the oven, cook some vegetables to accompany them – such as cauliflower, sweetcorn, mixed frozen vegetables or peas.
