    This is nice,although it would be nicer if there was more flavour off the pastry. I found that cutting the sausages up into chunks made it nicer (although I used 6 jumbo sausages instead of 8 normal ones-if I was to make it again,I'd just use normal sized ones cut up) and I cooked it for 30 minutes instead of 25 just to make sure it was fully done.I also oven cooked the sausages instead of frying them for health reasons. As I've never made a batter or toad in the hole before,I found that the recipe was hard to follow as I had to do a bit of googling on how to make a batter,so it would be good if the recipe was more detailed. Overall I was happy enough with it! (I took a picture of the finished thing but unfortunately it's telling me it's too big to upload!)

    Brilliant! Thank you. Perfect quick dinner. Much shorter recipe than other toad in the hole recipe. Great results.

    Not sure where I went wrong but I cooked it for 35 mins and the batter was still uncooked :(

    This recipe can be improved by leaving the batter to rest for at least an hour. I add sage herb to the batter mix for increased flavour!
