Toad in the Hole

No, not the toad in the hole we eat here in the USA, where you take a piece of toast and fry an egg inside.  Thought, I do love that one too.

This one is a traditional dish from England.  You all know how much I love England and anything from there, and I've wanted to make this one for quite a while.

I actually followed Claire Witt's recipe and it turned out amazing.  Big thumbs up from the whole family.

Olive oil
1 cup Flour
1 cup Milk
1 Egg
Salt and pepper

In an ovenproof dish, place the sausages and drizzle on some olive oil.  Should have quite a bit to cover the bottom of the dish.

Bake in a 400 degree for about 20 minutes.

In a bowl, mix the flour, milk, egg and salt and pepper to taste.  Remove the sausages from the oven, the oil should be piping hot.

Pour in the flour mixture over the sausages and pop back in the oven for another 20 minutes or so until cooked through and browned.

Serve with brown gravy and mashed potatoes.


  1. This looks and sounds easy and delicious!


  2. This looks so good. What kind of sausage did you use? Did you make gravy from scratch? Thanks for sharing.

  3. I'd love to know what sausage you used also. I am a british expat in the US and cant find any sausages similar to the british pork sausage commonly used for this dish.
