  • “Good as a solid recipe for Toad in the Hole however was quite bland on its own. I added onions, mushrooms and lots of extra herbs/spices, its definitely something open to lots of experimentation”

  • “I cut back on the sausages but made the batter as stated in the recipe & followed the instructions. I was disappointed that it didn’t puff more – It had a heavier consistency that I am used too however I did enjoy it hence the 4 stars.I used Italian herb blend. Nice flavor”

  • “I’ve had this recipe printed out for a while, but just got around to making it.It will definitely be a breakfast staple at our house now.Easy to throw together and great served with some dill scrambled eggs.My sausage was spicy, so I only added salt and pepper to the batter and that worked fine.It has a great crispy crust.Would also be great with some country gravy served over the top!”

  • “This was the *perfect* Toad in the Hole for a blustery fall day!I’ve eaten it before, but never attempted to make it myself — I was so pleasantly surprised at how easy it was, and how well it turned out!I used turkey sausages & 1.5 teaspoons of Montreal seasoning for my batter, so didn’t need extra salt or pepper.I served mine with a little brown gravy, and some asparagus soup (17229) to round out the meal.I’ll DEFINITELY be making this one again!Thanks for sharing it, Steve! :)”
