This was very nice. My husband is English and I cook Toad in the Hole quite often, but then the plain recipe. This batter was richer and softer. The onion and the cheese are great ingredients to add, but next time(and there will be a next time) I will increase the amount of cheese because that flavor did not come through enough.Thank you for this different Toad version!

It came out golden and tasted just as good as it looked - As suggested by the previous reviewer I increased the cheese to 1/2 cup and doubled the onion to 4 tbsp I used locally made English Bangers. I made the batter earlier in the day kept it very cold in the fridge and poured it into the 400 degree pan over the bangers. I think this helps rhe batter to rise (Ido this with my Yorkshire Puddings too) With the increased cheese and onion this is better than a 5 star. Thank-you Barbara for a comfort food recipe that I will make again — Feb 27, 2003, 2 members found this helpful Made this again and this time took photos - I think they convene how good this recipe really is! Thanks Arroostook for posting

AWESOME! cooking time is perfect. I precooked the sausage in a fry pan with the onions. I left the onions in the fry pan and made gravy. Serve with mashed potatoes. Comfort food for sure
