I realise that we're still in 2010, but I've already started my 2011 cookbook challenge – I figured that seeing as I invented it I could write the rules, and bend them as I need to!
There are two cookbooks on my shelf that I use more than any others - 101 simple suppers and 101 cheap eats. Both contain a fantastic mix of tasty, easy recipes that form the main part of our regular dinners. Tonight's dinner was one that we had done before, but enjoyed so much that it was time to do it again – a mustardy twist on toad in the hole that can be found in 101 cheap eats.
It's very simple really; two onions go in the tray whilst you roast the sausages and the batter has in it a couple of tablespoonfuls of wholegrain mustard. Combined with the pork and leek sausages that I was using this adds a lovely kick to what is already a pretty delicious, hearty meal.
