What is the name of that meal made from sausages cooked in a tray of batter?

I decided to make this for tea tonight and discovered that my husband doesn't call it by what I believed to be the only name this meal is known by, but he called it something else. I laughed but am now wondering if I'm wrong in thinking it's toad in the hole? Does anyone know it by an alternative name? Is this like people calling bread rolls cobs and I've just never heard of the other accepted variants?

Toad in the hole - I still call it that even if I replace the sausages with lamb chops [yum]

DaisysStew Sat 14-Oct-17 15:06:18

Toad in the a Hole... I'll pass thanks. 😂

Toad in the hole.

NaughtyElephants Sat 14-Oct-17 15:06:53

Yes, I knew I shouldn't doubt myself!

He thinks it's called sausage toad - no holes involved apparently hmm

But surely the sausage is the toad, so his version is therefore sausage sausage. He was brought up believing this is the right name for the dish.

Maybe LTB is a reasonable outcome grin

Definitely Toad in the Hole!

AuntLydia Sat 14-Oct-17 15:08:52

He was brought up with that insanity?! What were his parents thinking?!

MilkTwoSugarsThanks Sat 14-Oct-17 15:10:10

Well I was going to say Toad-in-the-Hole... but Frog-in-a-Bog is bloody brilliant! 😂

acornsandnuts Sat 14-Oct-17 15:10:46

Toad in the hole. He is very wrong and his parents have failed.

MagicMysterys Sat 14-Oct-17 15:10:51

Smeaton Sat 14-Oct-17 15:13:14

It is listed in Wikipedia as a variant name:

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toad_in_the_hole

I've never heard it tho.

NaughtyElephants Sat 14-Oct-17 15:13:34

MIL is a very normal lady with no other untoward names for food....that I know of!

Although this could be the tip of the iceberg, who knows what other random names he has for things that haven't yet been divulged?!
