Pigs in the Hole
Pigs in the Hole is a remix of the classic British Toad in the Hole recipe using pigs in blankets instead of plain old un-blanketed sausage.
Today's recipe was conjured up by Shirley after a post-Christmas freezer clear out. Pigs in blankets in toad in the hole is an inspired idea I'm sure everyone will agree. In some ways it's a crying shame that any pigs in blankets end up in the freezer at Christmas, but Shirley does have a tendency to over order when she's feeling festive (don't we all?!). It's fair to say no one has ever left her house hungry. Anyway, it's a super simple recipe, which might be your next family favourite. As always, let us know what you think in the comments below.
