For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

We really hate the nights drawing in, summer came and went in no time at all. We used to have this as a rare Sunday treat when I was a kid during those cold winter months.

Toad In The Hole is very affordable and easy enough to feed the whole family all in one go. Any child is sure to like it too!

It’s a delicious twist on a classic Yorkshire Pudding recipe. Talking of which, we have an amazing 1.5 syn Yorkshire Pudding recipe here.

You may have noticed that the recipe calls for 6 sausages but the pictures only show 4.

This is because our tin wasn’t big enough to hold all 6 so we had to split the recipe between 2 tins. But if you use a decent size tray then you can get all six in no problem.

You could put your own twist on this to, by adding onions, some spicy sausages or even some red onion marmalade.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Rapeseed Oil flavours are ideal for this Low Syn Toad In The Hole recipe.

  1. This was lovely the bee knees I haven’t had frog in the ditch aka toad in the hole for ages will definitely have this again.
    Thank you pinch of nom

  2. So is this for three people? How would the syns alter if I used the slimming world sausages available at Iceland? 🙂 thanks!

  3. I’m definitely going to try this for something different . I always use Porky Whites light 0.5 syns each and they tast like a real banger… so can’t wait.

    1. Hi Jean,
      We’ve only just discovered the joys of Porky Lights and I agree, they do taste just like a ‘proper’ sausage. I think they would be fab to use this recipe

  4. Fabulous recipe! Bit of a favourite in our house now! I have found it works best in either a metal/ceramic dish though. So tasty!

  5. We had this for dinner tonight, along with the broccoli cheese. They were both amazing! Thank you so much, your website is a fantastic help!!! 😄

  6. Made this for the first time today and it was delicious – even my boyfriend thought so! It will def be a new favourite in our house! X

  7. ThIs was delicious but a little eggy! What size eggs should I have used? I was unsure so I used 1 large and 1 medium egg

    1. Hi Leah
      If you use syn free sausages you would only need to syn the flour for 4.5 syns and the milk for 1.5 which means it would work out at 2 syns per pertion

  8. This has become a firm favourite I made it for myself a couple of weeks ago and then again tonight for me and my hubby. He’s asked when we can have it again!

    1. Hi Angie
      If you click in the box that says the portion number you can change the number of servings you require. Doing this will adjust the ingredients accordingly

  9. Hi, if this recepie is for 3 people and the dish works out 6 syns in all is that 2 syns serving or is it 3 syns per serving regardless of how much you have made.
    Hope that makes sense. Love toad in the hole just wanna make sure i syn properly. I will be using Icelands SW Sausages as i love em!

    1. Hi Lynda
      The recipe card shows the number of portions and the number of Syns is based on the sausages we used. (Protein Food Shop sausages, which are 1.5 Syns each.)
      If you use different sausages, you would need to check the Syn values. Hope this helps.

  10. Hi there,
    When it says Low Fat Sausages, what brand is everyone using? I don’t normally have sausages.

    Thanks 🙂

  11. Hi, just wondeting whetber you’re going to warn your readers about the real syn value of Porky Lights? The reciprs are greaf and I know you say people should check syn values for themselves but not everyine does, and thete is such a huge diffetence here that it would be very helpful if you alerted everyone they need to count 4.5 syns for Porky Lights. There are loads of good low syn sausages out there as alternatives. Thanks.

    1. Hi Angela
      When there are any changes made to Syn values, Healthy Extras etc we do try to update all the recipes as quickly as we can. However, as I’m sure you can appreciate, we have over 300 recipes on the site so this can take a little time.

    1. Hi Emily
      If you take a look at the recipe card, we show the Syn values for the flour and milk used to make the batter. This may vary depending on the flour, please check the SW app for the brand that you use.

  12. Hi Kate, I just got some pork and leek sausages from The Protein Food shop, I synned them and they came out at 5.5 each- how did yours come out at 1-? Have I bought the wrong ones or am I doing something daft?

  13. I live in n Ireland don’t have access to major supermarkets I would love if you put up a menu for a week then I could shop n only buy whats on the list and amounts for each meal n snacks thank you gv xx

  14. Hi Kate
    I put that it had a free food allowance of pork in it- but they still out at 5.5 each- I knew it seemed too high for such a low cal/fat product- what have I done wrong?

    1. Hi Zoe
      You’ll need a tin/dish large enough to fit 6 sausages comfortably with space for the Yorkshire pudding batter to expand too!

  15. Hi Kay
    I made the pon toad in the hole today. It was lovely and crispy but lacking in taste as I used the Heck chicken sausages. Next time I will add mustard powder. What herbs do you think would work in the batter mix please? TIA

    1. Hi Gill. I’m sure you’ll both enjoy it. Our toad in the Hole is a big hit with lots of our members on the group page!

  16. Maybe a stupid question but can almond milk or any of the alternative milks be substituted in sauces and batters?

    1. Hi Tracey,

      I’ve not tried substituting but I believe they work the same – you would have to give it a go and see how they turn out!

  17. Thank you so much for a fab recipe. It went down really well with hubby who’s not doing Slimming World. It’s a keeper in this household. 😀

  18. I’m using SOSMIX vegetarian Sausage meat that you have to mix with water. I do not like any other veggie sausage but I don’t know the calories of it . Does anyone else know .?

  19. Think I boo bood with this. Not sure my dish was large enough and also the batter was very eggy, think my eggs were too large. So didn’t quite hit the mark. Going to give it a go with smaller eggs though

    1. Hi Eileen
      We use medium eggs in our recipes, which might make a difference. Please give them another try, we have lots of very positive comments about the recipe from people who’ve made it and loved it!

  20. Hi,

    Looks like a great recipe, can’t wait to try it. Just wondered which types of the sausages from protein world were a syn each? Is it just the low fat pork or Cumberland, Pork & Leek Sausages and Lincolnshire Sausages too?

  21. Could you make mini ones and then freeze for mini toad in the hole or is this recipe not freezable? Love the recipe! Thankyou xx

  22. i absolutely love this site there are so my recipies to choice but most of all not one nasty commment and brilluant support from members

    1. Hi Esther
      Awww, thank you so much! <3 It's great to get such positive feedback. The admin team work really hard to make sure the Facebook group stays positive and supportive. After all, we're all on the same journey, it's so much better to build each other up than knock people down!

  23. I just made this tonight it was very tasty but I just didn’t feel it was crispy enough and still a bit soggy inside, any advice??

    1. Hi Davina
      We use medium eggs in our recipes, so it may be the size of eggs used. You also need to make sure you get the pan really hot before adding the Yorkshire pudding batter. Hope that helps. 🙂
