  4. To make the gravy: heat the oil in a medium pan, add the onions and cook for 5 mins or until golden brown. Add the sugar and cook over a low heat for 2 mins or until caramelised.
  5. Add the flour to the pan and cook, stirring for 1 min. Gradually add the stock, then bring to the boil and simmer for 1 min. Season to taste and keep warm. Serve the toad in the hole with the onion gravy.
