Mini Toad In the Hole

I was looking for some easy comfort food on a cold & wet day last week so I made these for lunch - the kids loved them!

Ingredients (makes 6)
60g plain flour
1 egg
60ml of cold water
60ml milk
Pinch of dried thyme
3 chipolata sausages
1 tbsp olive oil

Tip the flour in a bowl and make a well in the middle.  Crack the egg into the well and whisk - the flour will fall down into the eggs as you whisk and it will all bind together.  Pour over the water and the milk gradually, and mix well.  Stir in the thyme and leave to stand for 10 mins.

Cook the sausages in the oven (at 180 degrees) for around 15 mins - you want them to be partly cooked and starting to brown.  Take them out of the oven and cut them in half. 

Rub a muffin tin with the oil (this is really important - you'll have to pry them out otherwise!) and pour the batter evenly between six "holes".  Add half a sausage to the top of each portion of batter.  If there is a less brown side of the sausage, make sure that is facing upwards if possible.  Put them back in the oven and cook for another 15-20 mins.
