  • 4
    Using tongs, cut each sausage into 4. While the pan is still hot, carefully pour over the egg mixture, dot with fresh rosemary and place the pan on a flat tray.

    Bake for 20-25 minutes until well puffed and golden.

    Drain well and toss with the butter, a squeeze of lemon and fresh nutmeg. Season well and serve.


This dish combines toad-in-the-hole sausages and a Yorkshire pudding-style batter. It’s super- quick to prepare and kids love it! Make sure your pan or dish has high sides and the oil and sausages are hot before adding the batter – this helps it to puff up. I’ve served mine with buttered silverbeet to boost your iron intake.
