Toad in the hole


Easy delicious meal for all the family.


For the batter

  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml semi-skimmed milk

For the toad

  • 8 pork sausages
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

For the gravy

  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp plain flour
  • 2 tsp English mustard
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 vegetable stock cube, made up to 300ml


  • Preheat oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. 
  • First make the batter. Put the flour in a bowl, add the eggs and slowly mix in the milk then beat until smooth.
  • Put the sausages in an ovenproof baking dish, scatter over the sliced onion and drizzle over the oil. Roast for 15 mins.
  • Remove the dish from the oven, pour the batter over and around the sausages then return to the oven and cook for a further 35 mins or until the sausages are cooked through and the batter is golden on top.
  • To make the gravy, heat a deep frying pan or saucepan and fry the remaining onion in the oil for 5 mins until golden. Sprinkle over the flour and cook, stirring until thickened. Add the mustard, Worcestershire sauce and, gradually, the stock, stirring until smooth and thickened to your liking.
  • Serve the toad in the hole with the gravy to pour over.

Tip: You can easily adapt the sausages in this recipe to suit your family needs; try flavoured pork sausages, lower fat alternatives or vegetarian sausages as you like.
