Healthier toad-in-the-hole

Toad in the hole doesn't need to be off the menu just because you're watching what you eat. This golden puffy batter is bursting with flavours. By using less oil and choosing reduced-fat sausages you can still enjoy this hearty home-cooked classic.

Finely chop the fresh sage leaves. Finely chop the leaves of the fresh rosemary.


  1. 1 Heat the oven to 220°C/425°F/gas 7 (200°C for fan ovens).
  2. 2 Spray a medium roasting tin with olive oil spray and add the sausages. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes or until they start to brown. Move on to the next step while you wait.
  3. 3 Meanwhile, put the flour, mustard, sage and rosemary in a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
  4. 4 Break the eggs into the well and mix in using an electric whisk.
  5. 5 Continue to whisk and gradually add the milk until you have a smooth batter. Season generously, transfer to a jug and set aside.
  6. 6 Remove the roasting tin from the oven and quickly but carefully pour the batter around the sausages.
  7. 7 Return to the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes, or until the batter is puffed up and golden.

    This was a really easy dish to make and the fresh herbs made it much tastier than the traditional recipe. I really like the addition of mustard to the batter.
