Hello. I hope you all had a good weekend. I had good intentions to post something over the weekend, but you know life sometimes gets in the way and good intentions fall by the wayside. Growing up I went to boarding school and we often used to get Toad in the Hole for school dinner, whilst it wasn’t particularly great or as nice as this Posh Toad in the Hole, it was still a treat and something to get excited about. My mum also used to make this and that was a treat, so I guess what I am saying is that I grew up on Toad in the Hole and so when I saw this recipe in February’s issues of Good Food magazine, both myself and my husband decided that we needed to make it. Enter the Posh Toad in the Hole.
This Posh Toad in the Hole is a delight to eat and it is actually not that difficult to make. It is a one pot dish so saves with the washing up, which can only be a good thing in my mind, even when you have a dishwasher, talking of which, is it just me, or do you also rinse your pots and pans before putting them in the dishwasher because I really hate it when the dishwasher has run it cycle and you empty it and discover that one of the pans or roasting dishes still has some food from last night’s dinner and so you have to wash it again. One day maybe they will invent a fancy dishwasher which cleans all the nooks and crannies.
Anyway, I digress, sometimes you need to vent right? Here is my take on Posh Toad in the Hole.
