Gluten Free Toad in the Whole

Gluten Free Toad in the Whole

We love Yorshire Pudding and Toad in the Whole, but one of our children has developed a gluten allergy, so we are trying alternatives to wheat flour at our house. Our first attempt was close, but not quit the right balance. This recipe can be done with breakfast sausage served on its own or with syrup or with Irish Sausage severed with pork gravy. You can also make it into individual servings by transferring the meat into muffin tins.

Ingredients

1 lb Sausage
5 Eggs
3/4 cup Whole Milk
3/4 cup Arrowroot
pinch of Sea Salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a 14-16 inch cast iron skillet brown the sausage. Place pan with sausage in the preheated oven for 3 minutes.In the blender combined eggs, milk, arrowroot, and salt. Blend until well combined approximately 2 minutes. Pour mixture over the sausage and cook for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Cut into 8 slices.
