Toad In The Hole Recipe: A Classic British Dish [Easy]

Published by: Chef Patrick Browne • Updated: January 20, 2024 • Checked By: Chef Matty Riedel

A combination greater than its parts, the humble Toad in the Hole is a satisfying mix of tasty sausage and savoury bread.  It’s also simple to make, and a great entrée served with gravy and vegetables.

While I used pork sausages here, you can choose any sausage.  Just brown them off in the baking dish beforehand, add some Yorkshire pudding batter, and you’re ready for a wonderful meal in under a half hour.

Chefs Tips
  • For the best experience, it’s important to serve this as promptly as you can after removing if from the oven.
  • While it pairs well with a lot of sides, I prefer it simply with some peas, mashed potatoes and gravy.
  • If you do have some leftovers, reheat them gently in a 180℃ oven.
