Ingredients

Toad
16  mini sausages Vienna Pork Mini Frankfurters – or Vienna Beef Mini Frankfurters
Yorkie Batter (Prepare one hour before cooking)
1 tsp Salt
100g Plain flour
3 Eggs
250ml Whole Milk
3  tbsp Beef Dripping/Goose or Duck Fat
Mash
400g Mash potato (Homestyle Mash from Lamb Weston – or make your own at home)
100g Butter
10g Chives
1 tsp Salt
Gravy
200g Instant / Shop Bought gravy

Instructions

1 Combine your Yorkie batter in a big bowl. Blitz the mixture with a stick blender until smooth, then leave to rest for at least 1 hour
2 Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C. Divide the lard or goose/duck fat between 8 muffin holes in a muffin baking tray. Put the tray in the oven to heat up.
3 Add a Vienna Pork Mini Frankfurter 8cm to each hole. Return to the oven for a couple of minutes, to get the oil back up to temperature.
5 Pour the batter into the muffin tray and roast for a further 15 mins until the Yorkies rise and turn golden brown. Avoid opening the oven during cooking to help keep in the heat and aid the rising process.
6 Mash your potatoes – if using instant mash, simply heat as instructed then mix with butter chives and salt. If making from scratch, bring a pot of water to the boil and cook your potatoes until you can get they’re fork-through soft. Then drain and mash – mixing with butter, chives and salt.
7 Add mash potato to the Yorkies and serve with a drizzle of gravy on each. Enjoy!
