Toad in the hole is a traditional English dish consisting of sausages in Yorkshire pudding batter, usually served with vegetables and onion gravy. The origin of the name “Toad-in-the-Hole” is often disputed. Many suggestions are that the dish’s resemblance to a toad sticking its
head out of a hole provides the dish with its somewhat unusual name. It is rumored to have been called “Frog-in-the-Hole” in the past, although little evidence exists to support this theory. It can also be referred to, less popularly, as “Jimmy toad”.
