Onion gravy

  • 2 tbsp butter , unsalted
  • 1 red onion , sliced thinly
  • pinch salt
  • pinch sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 480 ml (2 cups) beef stock use a beef stock cube
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Toad In the Hole

  • 130 g (½ cup) flour plain / all-purpose
  • 3 large eggs
  • 240 ml (1 cup) milk semi-skimmed
  • 8 pork sausages
  • 6 tsp vegetable baking fat or vegetable oil, as needed


Make the Yorkshire Pudding Batter

  • Add the flour to a mixing bowl. Crack the eggs into the bowl, add a splash of the milk and use a balloon whisk to whisk together.
  • Start mixing in the middle of the bowl, slowly incorporating the flour into the eggs and milk.
  • Gradually add the remaining milk and mix until you have a smooth batter. Rest the batter for 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Note: If you have an immersion blender you can add all the ingredients into a tall measuring jug and simply blitz until the batter is smooth.

Make the gravy

  • Add butter to a saucepan and stir in the onion once it starts foaming. Add a pinch of salt and sugar and cook, stirring, over low heat for about 10 minutes or until the onions have softened.
  • Sprinkle with the flour and gradually stir in the hot beef stock. Add the Worcestershire sauce and simmer for a few minutes until the gravy has thickened. Have a taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.

Cook the sausages

  • Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes. Add the sausages into a silicone liner (or directly into the air fryer) and cook for 10 minutes at 350°F (180°C). Slice the sausages into 3-4 pieces.

Make the Toad in the Hole

  • Place the cake tins in the air fryer and add a little vegetable oil or solid baking fat such as Trex. Preheat for 3 minutes at 400°F (200°C).
  • Add the sausages into the cake tins and pour the batter over them to come halfway up the cake pans.
  • Air Fry for 12-15 minutes, or until the batter is golden and crisp at the edges.

Serve and enjoy!

  • Serve two mini toad-in-the-hole per person with a good drizzle of the gravy and some peas, green beans and /or mashed potatoes. Pure comfort!
