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.

It would always have us pleading for more, and there would never be anything left. It’s just one of those real comforting dishes.

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 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.

What Sausages should I use for this Toad In The Hole?

Use whichever low fat sausage you prefer, but do remember the points and calorie count may differ, so adjust accordingly.

  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. 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

  3. 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!

  4. 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!!! 😄

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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!

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

    Thanks 🙂

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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!

  13. 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 .?

  14. 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

  15. 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

  16. 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

  17. 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??

  18. I love the book and the news feeds, it’s the best thing that could of happened you’ve inspired so many people who where ether board or just lost their mojo trying to lose weight. Thank you so much.
