It doesn't matter what I cook to go with it, it just seems like an afterthough plonked on the side of the plate! (I can't cook veg mixed in as DH is too picky)

Nom nom. Cabbage, carrots, broccoli, peas? Anything really. But I'd have some of those.

pease. You can pour them around it and make it look artistic. grin

Gravy unites toad in the hole with vegetables

I do not cook any side veg with it but usually serve it with a "giant" salad and italian dressing. goes down very well here!

BertieBotts Tue 22-Sep-09 10:21:42

Cabbage, usually. Anything dark green and slathered in gravy! Carrots could go well too.

i think grilled tomatoes goes well - and any green veg.

Whatever in the fridge or freezer.

We had salad with burgers last night so can't do that again. Don't have cabbage as I sliced it up for coleslaw but I cna do peas and courgettes....

<searches fridge>

and a gnarly carrot?

Do the courgettes... salt them before cooking, rinse off the fluid that comes out, then saute them really slowly in some olive oil with a bit of garlic... truly scrumptious!

Toad in the hole with SALAD !!! No, that's just wrong.

Baby carrots and broccolli in this house, with thick onion gravy.

Oh no, I now YEARN for Toad in the Hole, and we're supposed to be low fat eating ATM.

JackBauer Tue 22-Sep-09 10:32:10

I need to make 'proper' onion gravy don't I? Mmmmmmm

DH hates onions and so does DD1 so I never bother, but FIL will eat it so I can make it! (even though I am not having any as I am on a diet...)

JackBauer Tue 22-Sep-09 10:33:45

It can be low fat though, skimmed milk and then its just eggs and flour...and stick in some quron sausies and your laughing!

<thinks of her jacket potato and weeps>

colditz Tue 22-Sep-09 10:33:49

Peas and carrots and fried onions in the gravy.

Nom nom nom

Mushy peas!

JackBauer Tue 22-Sep-09 10:35:51

Well exactly colditz.

TBH if I serve it normally it gets peas mixed into baked beans and that's it. It doesn't work with veg at all unless you roast it with the sausies and slather it in batter too.

JackBauer Tue 22-Sep-09 10:36:18

Mushy peas?!


overmydeadbody Tue 22-Sep-09 10:42:13

the same vegetables that go with a roast

carrots beoccoli, swede, onions, butternut squash, peas

a tray of roasted veg (but not tomato or aubergine) goes down well, especially if you're serving it all with onion gravy

Salad just doesn't go, unless it is served first, as a starter.

Caugettes are just too watery.

overmydeadbody Tue 22-Sep-09 10:44:34

Just do peas Jack

Not peas ans caugettes

I am pleased to say that I have never eaten a quorn sausage in my life, and hope to keep it that way.

A sausage is a MEAT product.

Fine if you want to be veggie, but why try to pretend you're eating meat if you are not?

TBH I'd be happy with just the yorkshire pud, veg and onion gravy. But non-meat sausages ???? [shakes head slowly in dis-belief]

Clumsymum, I am not from 'round here grin. In our house we have to cater for various origines: North Africa, Italy, Switzerland for Dh and I but Dcs are British hence the unusual combination! You should try at least once, be adventurous!

Lilyloo Tue 22-Sep-09 10:52:40

Peas here , usually mushy cause they are my fave grin

JulesJules Tue 22-Sep-09 10:56:38

God, I am dribbling for toad in the hole now. Only mine would be the quorn veggie version, sorry. With roast carrots and parsnips, broccoli, peas, and onion gravy...

gorionine Tue 22-Sep-09 10:58:25

We have the hallal saussages version here!grin

I think it is fantastic that a classic dish can be adapted so much!
