Toad in a Hole.

It's fall in Worcester.
The days have a chill to them now and with the leaves falling I thought it was time to try a British classic, Toad in the Hole, for dinner.
It's a simple batter you pour over hot oil and sausages and bake in the oven. I liked Jamie Oliver's suggestion to add rosemary-- gives a nice flavor.
(The typical English recipe doesn't add spice.)

I'm attempting to capture the rising pie. The recipe stressed NOT to open the oven door whilst the pie is baking, otherwise it doesn't rise properly. I did not have that problem, quite the opposite actually.

The finished Toad in the Hole!
A very nice meal for a stormy night.
