I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Cheesy British Toad in the Hole

No actual toads were hurt in the making of this meal!

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 eggs
1 cup milk
2 tsps bacon fat and/or olive oil (in the batter)
2 tbsps bacon fat and/or olive oil (in the pan)
5 pork sausages (I used cheddar and bacon sausages)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (gouda, cheddar)
2 green onions, sliced

Lightly brown the sausages, cooking on medium 12-15 minutes. Set aside.

Combine flour, salt and pepper. Beat eggs, milk and 2 tsps bacon fat together, make a well in the flour and add in the milk mixture. Beat on high using electric mixer, about 2 minutes.  Then fold in the cheese and sliced green onions.

Place 2 tbsps bacon fat in a heavy 8" skillet like my good old Guardian service. Preheat oven to 450 F and place the skillet in the oven for 5 minutes until fat is almost smoking.

Remove from oven and CAREFULLY pour the batter in.
Lay the sausages on top. You can sprinkle a little more green onion too if you like.

Return to the oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 F for 10-15 minutes. Then turn oven off and leave it to dry for 10 minutes.

Serve with mustard, relish or chutney.
See the ooey gooey cheese!
