Children love toad-in-the-hole, and here the popular dish has been zipped up with hot pepper and with sweet cherry tomatoes for extra flavour. Serve with finely shredded stir-fried cabbage or broccoli. Delicious!
*Try some of the unusual chipolatas available, such as a pack of mixed types. Or use smaller cocktail sausages instead of chipolatas. *For an extra-light batter, use half milk and half water instead of all milk.
Beefy onion popovers: Omit the chipolatas and tomatoes from the basic recipe. Put 350g lean minced beef into a heavy-based pan and fry with 1 small sliced red onion for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned. Season and stir in 1 tsp mixed dried herbs. Divide among the oiled bun-tin cups and bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Make the batter as step 2, replacing the hot pepper sauce with 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, then pour into the tin around the meat mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
