2 medium

Reduced-fat milk

cup(s)

Plain flour

cup(s)

Fresh thyme

1 tsp

Wholegrain mustard

3 tsp

  3. Pour oil into a 9cm x 19cm (base measurement) loaf tin and place in oven for 5 minutes. Arrange sausages in tin and pour over batter. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Serve sprinkled with extra thyme.
