Breakfast Recipes: Toad In The Hole

Here in the south, if you order “Toad in a Hole,” you’ll get grilled toast with a hole filled by a fried egg. But I recently learned on the other side of the pond, you’ll get something very different.

Toad in the Hole is a traditional English dish made with grilled sausages or other meats baked into a Yorkshire pudding batter. (Ever had Yorkshire pudding? It’s divine.) Apparently the dish is normally served with onion gravy and vegetables — as a lunch or dinner I guess. But I think it’s one of the tastiest breakfast recipes I’ve found in awhile. Perfect for a New Year’s day brunch.

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 8 tbsp. rendered bacon fat (or your favorite fat)
  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • 6 large pork sausages
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Whisk flour, mustard, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Whisk in milk and eggs. Let rest for 15 minutes.
  4. Pour 6 Tbsp. bacon fat (or your favorite fat) into a 9″ x 11″ baking dish, and place in oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium high heat.
  6. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each sausage and grill them in the skillet until browned, about 8 minutes.
  7. Pull the hot baking dish from the oven and pour batter into it. Then place the sausages in the batter.
  8. Bake until golden, 25-30 minutes.

New, interesting breakfast recipes are hard to come by, so I was excited to find this one. What are your favorite breakfast recipes?

    Um, being English myself, I feel compelled to point out the obvious that toad in the hole is something that you would NEVER have for breakfast, not even for brunch.

    Good recipe though, looks delicious.

      Thanks for bringing the English POV! I’m a fan of breakfast for lunch, dinner for breakfast, and the like. Throw in some puffy dough and I’ll eat it any time of day. I hope you try it out. And thanks for reading…
