Toad in the Hole

Toad in the Hole. A much loved British comfort food dish comprised of sausages and Yorkshire Pudding. I love to serve it with roast potatoes and onion gravy.

In honour of Sir Elton’s visit to our fair city, we served Toad in the Hole for supper last night. A traditional British favourite, popular with kids and adults alike, I’m told it is a staple comfort food across the pond.

Toad in the Hole is basically sausages baked inside of Yorkshire pudding which, on the face of it sounds rather dull.  In fact, however, it is a pretty tasty dish, especially when served slobbered in good gravy.

It also makes a pretty quick and easy weekday supper. We used some extra lean, spicy turkey sausages here, but you can use practically any favourite sausage.

We served it with British style roasted potatoes which are always a big favourite at our house, especially with the kids.
