Before my mum passed away she gave me the recipe for her Toad in the Hole I loved so much when growing up.

  • For the Hole (Batter)
  • 2 eggs
  • 113 g Plain flour (4 oz)
  • 230 ml Milk (8 fl oz)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 2 tsp thyme (optional)

  • For the Toad
  • 8 sausages (a pack of your favourite variety)


    1. Put the oven on at 220C and put the sausages and oil in a large enamel/metal dish. Don't use a glass dish as although it looks pretty doesn't conduct the heat well enough to get the wonderful batter rise. Bake the sausages in the oven for 15 minutes.
    2. While they are cooking, put the eggs, flour, salt and milk in the food processor and blitz to a smooth batter. Alternatively whisk by hand or electric whisk. I like to add some thyme at this point, but that is optional.
    3. When the sausages are ready, pour the batter all over the sausages and put back in the oven for 30-40 minutes (depending on your oven) until crisp and golden.
    4. Serve with carrots, peas and maybe even mashed potatoes.

made with linda mccartney sausages for the veggies and with normal sausages for the meat eaters and both turned out exactly how a toad in the hole should be. a good solid recipe that will be stored in my 'things i cook alot' recipe folder!

Made this today. Didn't have a metal or ceramic dish but my Pyrex glass worked perfect. Great recipe, works just right.. So much better than shop bought and I was surprised at how good it was!
