Toad in the Hole is simply a Yorkshire Pudding mix with sausages placed in the batter before its cooked. I prefer to cook my sausages before I place them into the batter.
Follow the instructions for the Yorkshire Puddings, place the batter in a small roasting tin, gently position 8 sausages into the batter and follow instructions for baking, Serve with baked beans to which a few drops of tabasco sauce has been added.
To balance this meal a fruit type dessert or alternatively a piece of fruit should be served.
