Toad in the Hole Starter Recipe

This is about as British as you can get, when it comes to starter recipes! Toad in the hole is a dish where sausages are cooked in a Yorkshire pudding batter. We have taken inspiration from that recipe to create these mini toad in the holes. You will need 4 Yorkshire pudding cups to make it, or else just use 4 large muffin cups or similar. The Yorkshire pudding batter is divided between the cups, and then you can add cooked sausages and perhaps some green peas too. Bake them until they are golden brown and crispy, then serve with lashings of brown gravy. They look nice garnished with herb sprigs too.

If you want to serve this as a main dish rather than an appetizer, you might like to add some cooked onion and carrots to the Yorkshire pudding cups, and consider adding sliced beef instead of cocktail sausages. Then serve each person a couple of these with hot, creamy mashed potato. You can get really creative with Yorkshire puddings actually; some people in the UK like to eat them with honey drizzled over them as a snack!

You can use cocktail sausages, frankfurters (chop them if they are the bigger ones) or cooked sausages (any kind) to make this dish, or you could use leftover roasted meat in gravy (or ‘au jus’) or anything else. You could even make vegetarian ones by adding extra veggies and leaving out the sausages. Yorkshire pudding batter is really versatile. You can make it any shape or size, and take your pick from various fillings.
