Toad in the Hole Recipe

Recipe by Jason Hicks

Toad in the hole is a traditional British dish of pan roasted sausages baked in a Yorkshire pudding – a batter that sets around the sausage and becomes golden and crisp (it is very similar in taste to a pop-over).

For a spin on this British classic, Chef Jason Hicks shared his recipe for Toad In The Hole, only he replaced the breakfast sausage with a spicy chorizo.

Make this dish for your next Sunday brunch or throw it together with a green salad and a glass of wine and call it ‘date night’.
