toad-in-the-hole


This comically named British dish consists of a yorkshire pudding batter to which small cooked link sausages are added. The dish is baked until the batter puffs up around the sausages (making them the "toads in the hole") and becomes golden brown. It's most often served for lunch or dinner.
