Total Time:

4 servings

  • Unsalted butter, for brushing on skillet
  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet spiral pork sausages
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard, plus extra for serving

Serving suggestions: assorted mustards

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F.

Lightly butter a medium well-seasoned cast iron skillet. Put the sausage in the skillet, and bake until almost cooked, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk the flour, sugar, and salt together in a medium bowl. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, and mustard until blended. Whisk the liquid ingredients into the dry, just until you have a slightly lumpy thin batter.

Carefully, pour the batter over the partially cooked sausages and continue to bake until the batter puffs and is crispy, and brown, about 25 to 30 minutes more.

Serve the Toad-in-the-Hole, hot, in the skillet with more mustard on the side.

    Just make this and it was excellent will make it again. Have to say I don't really taste the mustard in it, I also served it with Maple Syrup so that may have something to do with no tasting the mustard in the batter.
    This is not the "Toad in the Hole" I'm used to....egg fried after being cracked into sliced bread with a hole cut in the middle and all fried up in a cast iron skillet. Probably the first thing I learned to cook. 
    Wow, people use the same words to mean different things.
    I think that's called Eggy in a Basket, plenty of others have Toad in a Hole that is similar or the same as this.
    exactly as a Brit would make ..serve for breakfast..never. Always as high tea, served with a good nice rich gravy..English gravy not a biscuit gravy. try sauteed mushrooms and onions as a side.
    This is pretty good, a little bit bland so if you are expecting a very savory meal.. this isn't it. Try adding a bit of butter and syrup on top.. mmmmm.
    This is a recipe my mother used to make over 30 years ago for breakfast...except no mustard was used and it was served with warmed butter and maple syrup. It's a great alternative to French Toast.
    Where is the toast.....where is the fried egg? What is this recipe because it is not Toad in a Hole.
    Expand your horizons. It most certainly is Toad in the Hole.
    This Recipe Was Very Easy To Make And Very Tasty, But If You Are Thinking Of Doing The Recipe, I Advise That You Only Use 1 TSP Of The Mustard And Not 1 TBS....Thanks FoodTV!
    We are not fussy and like to try somethng new. Would not make again. It was just okay. Hubby will eat just about anything, said not again, sorry and my mom was born in UK
