Toad in the Hole For One

I love Toad in the Hole but I’d never made it…until now!! This was probably the hardest recipe I’ve had to put together and adapt for one person. But I am pleased to say that it was a major success, and the result was a wonderfully crisp, tasty yorkshire pudding. Excuse the photo, it’s not the prettiest but the taste more than made up for it!


  • 2 sausages
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1-2 sprigs of rosemary
  • 1 egg
  • 100ml milk
  • 80g flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C or gas mark 7
  2. Strip the leaves off the rosemary and roughly chop the red onion
  3. Place the sausages, rosemary and red onion into a roasting tin and cover with 1 tbsp oil, then roast for 10-15 minutes
  4. Whisk the egg and flour together until smooth and there are no lumps, then pour in the milk bit by bit until all combined – you may need to add more flour to make it slightly thicker, or more milk to make it slightly thinner at this point.
  5. Remove the roasting tin from the oven and whilst it’s still piping hot, pour in the batter
  6. Return to the oven and cook for 30-35 minutes until golden brown
  7. Serve with mash, peas and beef gravy

Tips and Ideas:

  • Try different flavoured sausages, like Pork and Apple, Cumberland or even Venison
  • I made mine using frozen quorn sausages and it worked perfectly as a veggie-friendly dish
