Toad In The Hole

winter comfort food at its best

This classic British dish has been appearing on our tables for over 200 years! but it never contained actual toads, it originated as a poor mans dish to feed a family and would have seen various cuts of cheap meat inside the batter. These days it contains beautiful succulent sausages.


  • Mix together your eggs,milk, flour,salt, pepper (I use a blender ) allow to sit for few hours at least
  • Melt your beef dripping in a roasting tray and add your sausages with oven on full temp, cook sausages for 10 mins until fats smoking then whisk your batter again and pour over the sausages (be quick you don't want it cooling)
  • Put the tray back in the oven for 25 mins on full until it's risen and golden.
