easy toad in the hole

Toad in the hole is a simple yet delicious dish that both the kids and adults can enjoy. It’s straightforward to prepare, so it’s great to get the kids involved in making this delicious dish.

For anyone who has never heard of this dish, it’s sausages cooked in a Yorkshire pudding batter. It’s super simple and incredibly filling so perfect if you’re someone who is on a tight budget but wants a tasty meal.

This dish is excellent on its own, but you might want to cook up some onion gravy or something similar to go with it. While the sausages are in the oven baking, it’s the perfect time for you to prepare the gravy, so it’s ready to go when they come out of the oven.

If you’re trying to think of some side dishes to go with this meal, then mash potatoes and peas are the perfect match for toad in the hole. Even a delicious cauliflower cheese will go great as a side dish. With that said, there are a huge amount of other sides that I haven’t mentioned that will perfectly match with this dish. It just really comes down to what you’re feeling like and how big your budget is.

The video below will take you through all the steps to making this deliciously easy dish. It’s incredibly simple and won’t take up too much of your time. You can also find the full written recipe underneath the video or in our super cool easy recipe cookbook.

Cooking Tips:

  • You can pan fry the sausages instead, but this will, of course, make more washing up.
  • If you’re using frozen sausages, then it’s best to defrost them before starting this recipe. Cooking from frozen may not deliver the best result.
  • Thick sausages work the best, but you can use slimmer ones instead. Just be careful that you don't overcook thin sausages. I recommend that you reduce the initial baking time of the thin sausages to only five minutes.
  • If you wanted to be super lazy then you can always use a yorkshire pudding packet mix instead.
