James Martin of Saturday Kitchen showed us his recipe for toad in the pit – with a Yorkshire pudding tester.

With more and more people staying at home and isolating themselves during a coronavirus pandemic, many celebrities have found quick and simple recipes to annoy us.

James, who now appears live from his home, has prepared a path in an opening that is quite easy to prepare and requires many ingredients that may already be present in your kitchen.

James also added that the recipe can be made of anything, making it flexible enough to cook.

The toad in the hole needs eight sausages (which can be exchanged for vegetarian sausages) and lard or vegetable oil.

The sauce also requires sauce balls, caramelised onions, a teaspoon of Marmite, a teaspoon of Bovril and sherry vinegar – and all you have to do is mix all these ingredients.

In the meantime James advises to cook his Yorkshire pudding dough the night before and spend the night in the fridge to relax. All you need is eight eggs, a pint of whole milk and 225 grams of ordinary flour.

Making a dough is very simple, mix the flour, eggs and milk in a bowl, swallow it by hand and just put it in the fridge to cool.

Then you can make all the important toads in the well:

  1. Preheat the baking tray with a teaspoon of lard or vegetable oil to 200 degrees Celsius – or 392 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Fry the sausages in olive oil, you’ll want to paint them, not cook them.
  3. Take the Yorkshire pudding dough out of the fridge and beat it again to mix well.
  4. Remove the preheated baking tray from the oven and add the sausages. Then pour some dough over it.
  5. Put the sausages and dough in the oven for an hour. Do not open the oven while baking as this may affect the rising of the dough.
  6. Take them out of the oven once to cool and then serve them with the homemade sauce.

It may take some time, but it’s a pretty simple recipe and the results are worth it in our opinion.

In addition to his meat-based version, James also chose a vegetarian version, which he then proudly presented – and now we’re very hungry for it.

This morning will be broadcast on ITV from 10 a.m. on weekdays.
