Roasted Beetroots and Horseradish In-The Hole

Serves 4.

This is a fun vegetarian take on the traditional version which uses sausages!  A great alternative to Sunday lunch with the deep, red beetroots being the centre of the dish and the golden batter rising around, seasoned with some punchy horseradish cream and fresh thyme.
