Toad in the Hole is made with sausages in Yorkshire Pudding batter. This is a recipe from my family which is true Yorkshire, for many generations.
This was very yummy, the whole family loved it. The second time I made it though, I decided to be like MrsNorico and change it a bit. First, I threw away the sausages and replaced them with fish fingers, then, instead of making a batter, I decided to mix up half a packet of Angel Delight, added some chopped walnuts and a bag of spanners, and cooked it in the freezer. I think my version was nicer actually but none of my kids would even try it which is why kids these days never get their 5 a day. - 20 Jun 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Used different ingredients. First I halved the amount from 4 to 2 servings. Then I used spicy sausages and they worked perfectly. My husband loved this dish. Also I added chopped scallions for colour and some tinned mushrooms to increase the volume. Then baked in a little ramekins. Good for two-person household. - 24 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Unfortunetly I am bias as I submitted the recipie. However I felt that I must defend myself as this being an original english recipie. My mother used to say that you "had to beat a lot of love into it" so I'm afraid those lumps only go away with a good beating....must be a strong Yorkshire arm that is needed or an electric whisk!!! It is also best left to stand for 10 minutes after beating. As for flavour it is best served with a rich onion gravy....a very english taste! And if you can get Linconshire Sausages or herby sausages even better. Good luck and enjoy. - 08 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
