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.
Do you need any special ingredients to make this Toad in the Hole Recipe?
Nope! Everything in this recipe is easily found in the local supermarket. Use whichever low fat sausage you prefer, but do remember the points and calorie count may differ, so adjust accordingly.

While the sausages are cooking make the batter.
In a bowl whisk the eggs, flour, milk and salt until there are no lumps, set aside in the fridge.
Remove the sausages from the oven, then turn it up to 210°C.
Spray the oven tray with a decent amount of low calorie cooking spray, then put it in the oven until it starts to foam (probably about 5 minutes).
Place the sausages in the pre heated tray, give the batter a quick stir and pour it into they tray with the sausages.
Cook at 210°C.
Do not open the oven door, but after about 10 minutes turn the oven down to just under 200°C and allow to cook for another 5 – 10 minutes (you should be able to take a look after about 15 minutes).
When the Yorkshire Pudding is risen, nicely browned and crisp remove from the oven and serve.
