“A hearty recipe of sausages baked in a batter and served with onion gravy. It sounds like you can multi task and start the Toad in the Hole while the Onion Gravy cooks. I am not a fan of prosciutto and plan to use bacon instead. Lard would be a good substitute if you don't have bacon grease on hand. From Saveur magazine”
