My dad is from the UK and growing up our Sunday Roast was always Toad in the Hole. Funny name i know, its simply Yorkshire Pudding with sausages. If you haven’t tried Yorkshire Pudding give it a go! you can make one large one or you can use muffin tins to make individual puddings! Perfect meal for a Sunday Roast!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup full cream milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 sausages


  1. Preheat oven to 220degrees
  2. Cook the sausages in a frypan until brown, they don’t have to be cooked all the way through, you just want to get some colour as they will continue to cook in the oven. Once browned, set the sausages aside.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the Yorkshire pudding In a large bowl combine the flour, milk, salt, eggs and rosemary. Whisk until well combined.
  4. Add the olive oil into a large baking tray and heat this in the oven for a few minutes, the oil must be very hot, then gentle remove the tray from the oven and quickly pour over the Yorkshire batter and then place the sausages on top. Place the tray back into the oven for 20-30 minutes or until it is golden and risen.
  5. Serve immediately with gravy and a selection of your favourite roast vegetables.


you can use whatever sausages you like, beef, lamb, chicken or even turkey, whatever is your favourite.

  • Such a great recipe – and it certainly stretches to meat further.


  • Haha! My folks were Poms too so I’ve had Toad in the Hole on many occasions – great comfort food!


  • Love it- great recipe


  • My parents are from England too so I’ve had this before as a kid. Never as a Sunday roast tho. Carb overload!


  • You have no idea the torture I have been through trying to make toad in the hole for my family. I have tried for literally years and end up with either stodge, burnt sausages and/or biscuits not yorkshire pudding and lovely sausages, I loved it when I was young and would love my kids to finally taste it. I’m going to try this recipe and keep my fingers crossed. I will keep you all posted.


  • Mum use to make this but the sausages were cut up and dotted over the pudding. Like the idea of whole sausages less work.


  • I have not had this for years!! My kids have never had it. I must try to make it one day


  • A traditional and family favourite meal – the ultimate comfort meal, good old toad in the hole.


  • l have heard of this recipe,it sounds interesting! Thanks!

    • It is so easy and tastes so good – well worth making and eating. :)
