Kids in the Kitchen – Toad-in-the-hole

Welcome to his weeks Kids in the Kitchen.
This is where I like to share what my kids have been up to in the kitchen and hope that you will join in and share too. There is a linky at the bottom of the page.

All kids love to help out in the kitchen, even if their helping just mean making a mess! It’s all good learning fun though and it’s good to share those moments and recipes with others. I welcome old posts or new, so do come and join us.

In return for joining in I will add your posts to my Pinterest Board as well as Tweet them. I may also give you a special mention here on the blog next week.

Big thanks to last weeks linker, The Beesley Buzz and the lovely Miss T who made a delicious looking  Apple Crumble made with Apples from their own apple tree.


Toad-in-the-hole is one of my favourites. In fact, when I visited the restaurant at the Grand Designs Exhibition recently I chose it for my lunch. Their menu had dressed in up as ‘Sausages in Yorkshire Pudding with Red Onion Gravy’ When I asked the lady behind the counter for the sausages in Yorkshire pudding she replied in a lovely Brummy accent ‘ya want toad-in-the-hole’ mmm yes please.
Of course Yorkshire Pudding is an egg recipe and I’m going to be featuring a few more egg recipes over the next few weeks. I find eggs are so versatile and are used in many things. I really like poached eggs and the kids favourite is scrambled. I always use British Lion eggs which is not difficult because 90% of eggs in our shops are now British Lion. Yorkshire puds are not very healthy but there are plenty of egg recipes that are, do you know how many calories there are in an egg?
Sausages, we usually have two per person…although Daddy likes three!
1 egg
100g flour
300ml milk
1tbs oil


make the batter by whisking together the flour, egg and milk in a bowl. Then when you have a smooth batter put bowl in the fridge.

put oil in 20cm by 30cm roasting tin
add sausages and cook in pre-heated oven 220C/gas mark 7 for 15 mins
Take tin from oven and add batter immediately.
Put back in oven for about 30 mins until batter is risen and golden

Here is a very smart Little Man in his shirt and tie making the batter.

  We like ours served with mashed potato, peas and gravy.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
