Toad in the Hole

As the England game was on last night (the less said the better) and we were having some friends over for dinner and to watch the game I wanted to make something ‘English‘ so after being highly indecisive and quite unimaginative I decided to make Toad in the Hole. However, one of our guests had never tried it and in fact did not even know what it was so it turned out to be a great choice and here is the recipe;


  • 12 Sausages (Pork or Poultry, which I use as I do not eat pork)
  • 225g of Plain Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 225ml of Milk
  • 165ml of Water
My Toad in the Hole Ready for the Oven


  1. Firstly cook the sausages on a baking tray in the oven, at 180 they will take 12-15 minutes
  2. Whilst they are cooking place a baking dish (around 25cm x 25cm) in the oven with a little bit of oil in it to heat up
  3. Sift the flour into a bowl and create a well in the centre
  4. Break the eggs into the well and beat into the flour
  5. Gradually add the milk and water and continue to beat until the batter is smooth
  6. When the sausages are cooked pour the batter mix into the dish with the heated oil and add the sausages
  7. Put into the oven for 35-40 minutes and serve

Serving Suggestions

I simply served this dish with gravy and mixed boiled vegetables and it tasted great

This meal was so quick and easy but still tasted great! It really was in-keeping with our English themed evening which was finished off with a strawberry and biscuit bake that was home-made by our guests for dessert!

    WOW! Brings new meaning to “pigs in a blanket!”

    1. I was thinking that I do not really know where ~toad~ comes from, but I know pigs in a blanket as sausages wrapped in bacon! But as a pork-phob not my favourite thing!

    1. Thanks, glad you liked it!
