Toad In The Hole - Pinch of Nom Slimming RecipesFor 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 to know in the blurb!

We really hate the dark nights drawing in, when it feels like summer came and went in no time at all. Like so many others during the colder months, we tend to steer towards hearty, comforting meals that are quick and easy.

This must be a familiar story, as so many members of our Facebook group love this recipe like we do! In fact, this was a Sunday treat growing up and even now it still feels naughty, despite being much lower in calories and points than a traditional, full-fat version.

Toad In The Hole is also affordable and easy enough to feed the whole family all in one go: who doesn’t love the cracking combo of Yorkshire puddings and juicy sausages?!

It’s a delicious twist on a classic Yorkshire Pudding recipe, adding some protein from the sausages and turning it into a proper comfort food dinner. You could put your own twist on this too, by adding onions, some spicy sausages or even some red onion marmalade.

Can you freeze or reheat this at all? Really want to try it but I live on my own and wouldn’t want to waste it!

    Hi Tabby, yes, you can freeze this recipe. Defrost overnight in the fridge. It is best reheated in a moderate oven for 10-15 minutes to keep it crisp. Make sure the sausages are piping hot! Hope this helps.
