It’s March and it is snowing today! I have been out and I did get soaked to the skin – urgh! It is not nice snow – more the sloppy sort that doesn’t stick around long enough to freeze properly. If you are thinking of cooking a really warming comforting meal you need go no further than the recipe for toad in the hole. But there is a catch if you are lactose and gluten or wheat free. How does the toad get in the free from hole? Make the following recipe and find out!
400 mls of lactose free milk
6 gluten free sausages
200g of gluten free self-raising flour
1 teaspoon of gluten free mustard powder
salt & pepper
1 tablespoon of olive oil
weigh the flour into a bowl and add the mustard powder and mix well
break the three eggs into the bowl and add the lactose free milk
add salt & pepper and mix well
add the oil to a dish and heat in the oven
prick the sausages and add to the pan
pour around the batter and place in the top of an oven at gas mark 7 or 220 degrees C till the surface is nice and brown.
Serves four for a meal – if you have a problem with higher fat foods and your IBS then you might need to be cautious with your portion size. Also don’t forget this is a high fat meal so it is for occasional consumption only – when you really need a lift midwinter after going for a long walk in the snow perhaps!?
