Toad in the Hole: Something for the Weekend

Following on our Yorkshire pudding post last week, we thought it made sense to share our Toad in the Hole recipe. Known over here as Pigs in Blankets, this is a simple dish that’s perfect for this time of year.

Toad in the Hole

Introduction from our cookbook… “In England this is a real “school dinner” meal. At boarding school ours was very stodgy and thick, more like pigs in a mattress. We like it that way but we we also like the correct way, which is light and fluffy, with a little stodginess in the middle but cruncy of the outside.”

6-8 sausages
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 recipe Yorkshire Pudding

  • Preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Pour the oil into a small roasting pan or ovenproof dish. Add the sausages and coat them with the oil.
  • Bake the sausages for 10-15 minutes, until they begin to brown and the oil is really hot.
  • Give the pudding batter a stir and pour it over the sausages. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until risen and crisp around the edges.

All the recipes on our blog are taken from our cookbook “Tea & Sympathy: The Life of an English Tea Shop in New York City”. Now out of print, we have a few copies left in-store. A perfect gift, we can ship in time for Christmas, just get in touch on 212-989-9735, or at
