Toad in the Hole

Vegetarian toad in the hole done right…

Serves 4


  • 125g Plain Flour
  • 300ml Milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard Powder
  • 8 x Goodlife Sausages (Tomato & Basil with Creamy Mozzarella are used in the photo – but you can use any flavour!)
  • Vegetarian Gravy (See Caramelised Onion Gravy Recipe here if making your own!)
  • Peas
  • Carrots
  • Vegetable Oil

How to Make

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Brush the sausages with a little oil, and cook in the centre of the oven for approx 15 minutes until cooked through.
  3. At the same time, put approx 1cm of oil in the bottom of a large ovenproof dish, and place in the oven to heat the oil.
  4. Sieve the flour into a large bowl, adding the salt, pepper and mustard powder.
  5. Make a well in the middle of the flour mix, and crack the eggs into the well.
  6. Add around a quarter of the milk and stir until mixed well.
  7. Keep adding the milk a little at a time, stirring to remove all lumps. Make sure the batter mix has the consistency of double cream.
  8. Remove the sausages and the ovenproof dish from the oven gently – ensure you’re careful with the hot oil.
  9. Place the sausages in the dish and pour the batter mix over the top. The oil may spit as the batter mixture hits it – so please be extra careful.
  10. Place in the centre of the oven for around 30 minutes until golden brown. The mixture in the centre of the dish needs to be cooked through – poke a knife in the centre, and if it comes out clean, it’s ready. If not, cook for a few more minutes and test again.
  11. Serve with some vegetarian gravy, peas and carrots.
