TOAD IN THE HOLE

PRACTICAL BOAT COOK IDEAS FOR EVERY YACHT
                          AND BOAT OWNER DOWNLOAD RECIPE HERE

Not technically a one pot dish, but worth a mention all the same, everyone loves it!

8 ounces pork sausages
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups milk
4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1−1/2 cups all−purpose flour.

PREPARATION

1. Heat oven to 450F. Place sausages in a baking dish about 9 inches square by 3 inches deep. Rub sausages with oil, and oil bottom and sides of pan as well. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, whisk together milk, eggs and salt in a mixing bowl, and set aside. When sausages are nearly ready, add flour to milk mixture and mix until smooth.
3. Transfer sausages to a plate and set aside. Pour just enough batter into hot pan to cover the bottom. Return to oven and bake until batter is set, about 5 minutes. Arrange sausages evenly across top of batter, and quickly pour in rest of batter.
4. Return pan to oven and bake until batter billows up around sausages and has a crusty top, about 25 minutes. Cut into squares and serve immediately, because the crust will sink as it cools.

HOW TO MAKE BOEUF BOURGUIGNON

Boeuf Bourguignon

PRACTICAL BOAT COOK IDEAS FOR EVERY YACHT
                          AND BOAT OWNER DOWNLOAD RECIPE HERE

500g cubed braising beef
425ml red burgundy wine
salt and freshly milled black pepper
200g smoked bacon lardons, or similar
110g small whole chestnut mushrooms
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
1 medium onion, peeled and sliced
180g onions
6 sprigs of thyme
2 bay leaves
1 heaped tablespoon plain flour

PREPARATION

It really is going to be this easy, just place the first 8 ingredients in a medium-sized flameproof casserole and season well with salt and pepper. Then sprinkle in the flour and, using both hands, toss it all around till everything is lightly coated with flour.

Next pour in the wine, give it a good stir then – ignoring the unpromising sight before you – put a close-fitting lid on the casserole, pop it into the oven on the centre shelf and leave it there for 3 hours, and look forward to the minimum-effort, maximum-result supper that awaits.

Well, wasn't that easy!
