Toad in the Hole Recipe

Toad in the Hole Recipe
Thought we'd do a British classic this week with Toad in the Hole. Quick and simple recipe, but never fails to be a family crowd pleaser. Especially good as the winter nights start creeping in. 

What You'll Need


  1. Place the sausages in small shallow baking dish and cook in the oven for about 10 minutes at Gas Mark 7 (220C, 425F)
  2. While the sausage are starting to cook, sieve the flour and salt into a bowl. Add the egg, half of the milk and beat to a smooth batter. Then, stir in the rest of the milk.
  3. Take the sausage from the oven, pour your batter over the sausage and bake for another 30 minutes.
  4. Lower the temperature to Gas Mark 6 (200C, 400F) and continue to cook for a further 15­-20 minutes, until the batter is browned and crisp.
  5. Dish up straight away.


  • Why not spice it up by using a Pork and Chilli sausage, or even just something different to a straight pork sausage.
  • Chicken breast sausage would work really well with gravy!
