Ingredients

  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp English mustard powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 medium free-range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 300ml skimmed milk
  • ½ small bunch fresh thyme, leaves picked
  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • 6 British free-range sausages

 

To serve (optional)

  • Ready-made onion gravy (we used Waitrose)

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, mustard powder and salt. Gradually whisk in the eggs, skimmed milk and thyme leaves, using a balloon whisk, until you have a smooth batter.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan, then fry the sausages for 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides. Transfer the sausages to a medium baking dish and add the remaining oil, then cook in the oven for 5 minutes. 
  3. Pour the batter over the sausages, then return to the oven to cook for a further 20-25 minutes until golden and puffed. Serve drizzled with onion gravy, if you like.
