Toad in the Hole
67

pinklillie · 23/01/2022 09:10

We are having toad in the hole for dinner. I ask my husband what veg he would like with it. He replied it doesnt need veg it's a meal on its own.

Is it!?

I am going to have to make some mash and peas/broccoli it's going to look like half a meal isn't it! Confused

I don’t serve it with potatoes but definitely some veg to put colour on the plate and give a different texture probably broccoli and carrots.

I put cabbage and peas or green beans and broccoli with toad in hole. No potato as the carb is the Yorkshire pudding but perfect dish for loads of green veg and all the gravy!

It definitely needs green veg at least. Depending on the portion, maybe that would be enough but you can’t just serve the toad in the hole on its own.

Definitely not a meal of its own.

I serve it with onion gravy, veg (usually carrots, cabbage and broccoli) and a little optional mash.

I agree with PP who said the carb is the Yorkshire, so it doesn't really need potatoes.

Nope, he's right, it's a meal on its own. However, on occasion I do a pan of braised leeks and onions as a nod towards a healthy side.

It depends, we have it on a Sunday with mash, carrots, Savoy cabbage and onion gravy. But we might have it mid week with bbq baked beans and no mash. It certainly needs something with it.

It doesn't need carbs, but it does need veg. Some buttery cabbage or something would go well with TITH

Definitely happy to have just greens and no mash as the Yorkshire is the carb like you've all said.

Love the idea of a leek and onion gravy too however the absolute heathen doesn't like gravy!

First Roast Dinner he ever made me was presented without gravy. I thought he was going to go and get some from the kitchen. Nope that was it! Nearly broke the deal!

No potatoes but always with veg. One green, one orange.

I made this a couple of weeks ago and we had it with carrots and cabbage.

How else are you going to get your 5 a day?

I tried to make Toad in the Hole when attempting to impress my now DW with my cooking skills!
Abject failure and I have never heard the end of it!

Please share your recipes!

I would serve a handful of roast potatoes (just because the oven is on ) with TitH, carrots, cabbage and onion gravy,

I think I will try it today, it’s our 25th anniversary next year, it would be good to achieve success before then!

Perhaps my position is based on the fact we each have a massive bit! There's no room on the plate for anything else. Grin

Another one agreeing no potato . I like mine with broccoli and lots of gravy, dh likes his with baked beans which seems too carb laden to me, but each to their own.

Just peas on the side. But we cook it with potatoes and onion in the bottom

No gravy? No veg? LTB.

I'm having either chicken or toad in the hole today but I already have mashed carrot and swede in the fridge so that will be served on the side.

The only time I've served it without gravy was when I did canape sized for a buffet.

i was insulted - and refused.
it needs veg and gravy, and if you can fit it on the plate, potato
