Free range Pork Toad in the Hole

Gill Meller of Chefs Alliance makes toad in the hole using free range pork
from farmer, Harry Boglione's organic pigs at Haye farm. Through his ethos of regenerative agriculture these pigs not only live how nature intended, but also regenerate the soil to help capture carbon and reverse climate change. Top chef, Gill Meller, writes about the importance of supporting high welfare pig farmers in his River Cottage Handbook: Pigs and Pork. In this video he shows us how to make the perfect toad-in-the-hole.

We need to reconnect with and support our traditional high welfare farmers, or we risk losing them forever. Gill & Harry are #RootingForRealFarms... Are you? #regenuary

Ingredients
Free range pork sausages
rosemary
onion
batter mix (egg, flour milk)
