  1. Preheat the air-fryer to 200°C. 
  2. Put the paper liner into the air-fryer and drizzle in the oil. Add the sausages and cook for 5-7 mins until just beginning to colour. 
  3. Meanwhile for the batter, whisk together the egg, milk, flour and cornflour until completely smooth. Season with salt and black pepper and let the batter rest. 
  4. Pull out the air-fryer basket, turn the sausages and quickly pour over the batter. Immediately return the basket and cook for 15 mins, the batter should be dark golden brown and crisp. Do not check the air-fryer before this or the batter could sink. 
  5. Cook for another 2-3 mins if not dark golden brown. 
  6. While the toad-in-the-hole is cooking, make the gravy. Put the stock into a small saucepan and whisk in the flour. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Once simmering, add the butter and season with black pepper. Cook for 4-6 mins until thickened. Reduce the heat to the lowest setting to keep warm until needed. 
  7. Put the broccoli, green beans and peas into a bowl and steam in the microwave for 2-3 mins until cooked through. 
  8. Once cooked, using a spatula, carefully lift the toad-in-the-hole out of the air-fryer and slide off of the paper liner. Cut into portions and divide between plates. Add the cooked vegetables and pour over the gravy before serving.
