Pre-heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 7.


Add the individual sausages to a 20 x 30cm roasting tin with the oil, tossing the sausages in it to thoroughly coat the base of the tin, then roast in the oven for 15 mins.


Tip the flour into a large mixing bowl and stir in the mustard and a good pinch of salt.


Make a well in the centre and crack in the eggs, pour in a quarter of the milk. Whisk the mixture, gradually incorporating some of the flour, until you have a smooth batter in the well.


Now add a bit more milk and continue stirring until all the milk and flour has been mixed together, when lump free, stir in the thyme.


Take the hot tray from the oven, then quickly pour in the batter. Put it back into the oven, then bake for 40 mins until the batter is cooked through, well risen and crisp. Check it after 40 minutes, cover loosely with foil if it is browning too much. If you poke the tip of a knife into the batter in the middle of the tray it should be set, not sticky or runny.


After 15 minutes put the potatoes into boiling water.


With 5 minutes to go add the green beans to another pan of boiling water.


Now add some oil to a frying pan and cook the onions until soft, add the gravy granules and some boiling water from the potatoes. Stir until thick.


Serve with mashed potato, beans and a large slab of toad in the hole topped with gravy
