English Toad in the Hole

Toad in the Hole? Who in the what now? My husband requested I made this classic English dish a few months back and I was so excited to finally try and make some English recipes. The recipes seem so complex but they really are easy!

Toad in the hole is similar to Pigs in Blankets if it were the grown up dinner version. I served ours with some gravy I had in the freezer! I would recommend serving it with a pork or turkey gravy.

Fire up an episode of “The Crown” and live your best British life. Cheerio!
