Her Majesties Toad in a Hole

After several comments on slave's Tennessee Toad in a Hole. It might be beneficial to share with you the more traditional style of this old English dish. Maybe you are aware of the “Yorkshire Pudding” that is often served along side of a good roasted beef. Of course it is NOT pudding and some say never had anything to do with Yorkshire. Be that as it may. This puffy bread like muffin tastes wonderful and is supper easy to whip together. In the traditional “Toad in a Hole” the batter around the sausages are made like Yorkshire Pudding.

Oh come on Try it some time. Easy and impressive with a quick clean-up, what more do you need?

1 package of 4 sausages (your choice)
2 strips of bacon
½ cup flour
¼ teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In an 8 x 8 glass baking dish lay 2 strips of bacon cut in half – making 4 pieces.
When oven is ready, place dish in oven and set timer to 20 minutes.

In a large bowl mix the flour and salt with the eggs and milk. Whisk until well mixed and set aside to rest.

When 20 minutes are up remove the dish and place bacon on paper towels to drain. Place sausages in dish and return to oven for another 13 minutes.

Then carefully give the batter another couple of stirs and pour over the hot sausages and let bake for about 22 minutes. 


 The batter will have puffed up and turned a light brown.

This dish does not have to rest but can be served right away. Great for an upcoming Easter Brunch! Hope Master Indy likes!

Lets have some music for this:


To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
