Okay Marra, I concede that this is indeed a magnificent Toad in the Hole.........it is excellent, but NOT as good as mine!! LOL! LOL! I am ONLY joking! It is slightly different to mine, but we LOVED it for lunch today served with mashed potatoes and gravy! I usually put my onions IN the gravy, but this was LOVELY with the onions being baked with the toad! A BEAUTIFUL British classic and I was pleased to tag this in PRMR - The Toad wars may be over Marra - this was a great recipe, we both really enjoyed it! No photo, as mine did not look as nice as yours in your photo - I used an old baking tray which was not very photogenic - tasted SUPERB however! Thanks Marra! FT:-)

Savory custard, pork sausages, gravy? How could you go wrong with this British comfort delight? You won't go wrong on this one, just make sure you have the rest of the day to take it easy and enjoy in a leisurely manner. I didn't change one thing, except add fresh herbs at the last minute. Made for ZWT #6 Zee Zesties - 2010

Made for breakfast today and we all really liked it. Strange-looking but tasty - the custardy-crust was really good. Thanks.

We loved this truly delicious Toad in the Hole. And if it took being heathen to achieve the fabulously light and flavoursome custard bed in which the toads resided, then long live the heathens! I cut this back for two and made it with pork sausages that I know to always be excellent. I never use lard, so I pan-fried the sausages in probably a teaspoon of butter (they never need much) in a non-stick pan until they had browned then put them in the oven. The only changes I made - probably thereby further heathenising the recipe - was to add two cloves of garlic and some cumin (I love both of these) to the onions in step five. Thank you, Marramamba, for this superb recipe, which I'll certainly be making again. We SO enjoyed every mouthful!

We have never had Toad In The Hole before and we now know what we have been missing all this time! Cannot wait to make it again and share it with my grown kids. Thanks! Made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap.

My family really enjoyed this! Mine took a bit longer to set up, but I was guessing on the oven settings. Next time I will crank it up a bit higher and use a different pan. Made for 2008 alphabet tag. Thanks Marra for a keeper!

I made half the recipe and it was very tasty, indeed. I did not have confidence in my pans on top of the stove, so I used a deep oven-safe saucepan. Creamy-custardy and crusty all around. Really good - I look forward to making this again.
