Welcome Byecklass! You may have to educate me on toad in the hole too (American here). Welcome to BE and please don't hesitate to ask if I can help you find your way around the site.

It's Yorkshire Pudding baked in a large tin...sausages are dropped into the batter before it's put in the oven.

And now that Publix is stocking "ethnic" British food I have an excellent source for box mix of Yorkshire Pudding - my poor mother is probably turning in her grave at me using a box mix but you do what you have to to get your food fixes in foreign lands

Welcome Byecklass,

You know how to interest a man quick enough ... just talk real English food!

I could burn water until I found myself on my todd, but I can actually do a Yorkshire Pudding now, that doesn't turn out like a pancake, and I'll fry a couple of sausages lightly first, for the fat, and throw the Yorkshire batter on them -for want of proper dripping- to make Toad in the Hole. (My Bubble and Squeak however, more 'fizzles and burns' ... ... any cookery tips gratefully received!)

And it goes without saying: I don't half wish you were 'my' neighbour! I'd find some excuse to come round more often than the postman if you're dishing up English fare!

With every good wish,
Christian

Sorry about that. As a new member if your posts or a post you have quoted contains any links it is automatically put into the moderation queue for approval. This is to stop spammers using the forums to advertise their goods/services. There shouldn't be a delay in seeing your posts now...you have passed the spammers test.

Bero cooking book...crickey that's a blast from the past. I had an old sephia one that mum had...it must be about 70/80 years old now.

Sounds like your book and mine are probably from the same print run. I have a couple of newer versions too but they are just not the same - falling apart and rough around the edges seems to make the food taste so much better
Apparently Bero recipes are now available online

Hi Byecklass

Welcome to BE - I can see from your posts so far that you're gonna have lots of fun on the forum.
Oh for toad in the hole - one of the most fabbie foods on the English palate - along with roast dinners and proper cakes.
If I am ever in Florida I shall be knocking on your cyber door to scrounge dinner !!!

Have fun

Dread - x
