For me there is no other food that says "Great English Dishes", than Toad In The Hole served with mash potato and a lovely rich onion gravy. The recipe below is just a lovely plain one, but you can tweak it by adding a teaspoonful of horseradish sauce to the batter mix, or a teaspoonful of English mustard. You could add some dried herbs like oregano, thyme or rosemary. Please experiment and let us know any tweaks that have worked for you.
This is a recipe from my family which is true Yorkshire, for many generations.
This is pure comfort food! Serve with gravy, mashed potato and veg. My mum loves this especially. I usually make this whenever she comes round for dinner. It's also very cheap to make too. Great for a family.
My toad in the hole - a classic that everyone loves.
This toad in the hole has the lightest, fluffy, but filling batter ever. Good hearty winter favourite I cook for my family.
You can't get anymore traditional than this!
How did this dish get its name and when was it invented? The Oxford Dictionary of Food gives the earliest reference to a toad in the hole as ‘The dish called toad in the hole, meat boiled in a crust’ in 1787. In 1861, Mrs. Beeton has steak and kidney cooking in the batter, so neither version was quite the same as today’s dish. Never mind – the combination of sausages and crisp, hot batter is irresistible. The cherry tomatoes are my own touch, which adds to the taste and colour of the dish.
Popular with children and adults alike, this traditional batter pudding is an excellent way of turning a few sausages into a hearty meal. Serve with onion gravy and seasonal greens.
My mother came up with this. A twist on the traditional toad in the hole. Instead of sausages, use lamb chops instead. It's a dish the family will love and is wonderfully comforting during the cold winter!
