    Serves: 4 

    • 8 pork sausages or choose any good quality and flavour
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 250g plain flour
    • 4 eggs
    • 250ml milk
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200C.
    2. Pour the oil into the bottom of a baking dish, and arrange the sausages on top in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
    3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add the flour, make a well in the centre and add the eggs and half the milk. Whisk together until smooth. Gradually mix in the remaining milk until the batter is smooth. Season well with salt and pepper.
    4. Remove the sausages from the oven, and ladle the batter over them until the sausages are 3/4 covered.
    5. Return to the oven, and bake for 35 minutes, or until the centre is risen and browned. Don't worry if the underside seems slightly soft, as this is normal.

    ..a very easy recipe to make. My hubby loves every bits of it. Will definitely become a must menu from time to time.  -  17 Sep 2010


    Nice simple recipe. Batter rose lovely. I would suggest cooking the sausage a little longer, until they are a little browned before doing the batter stage.  -  01 Feb 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
