Vegetarian Toad in the Hole

It’s Monday and this week I have decided to relaunch my neglected Meat Free Monday blog spot because I miss it!  If you are new here I am a veggie wife to a veggie man and mum to four vegetarian children. I decided to run this meat free slot after requests from followers here and on Twitter and as a showcase for some of my veggie and vegan recipes. It seemed to make sense to run it on a Monday as part of the Meat Free Monday campaign and I aim to post recipes which are easy and family friendly. For more vegetarian food ideas please visit my ‘other place’ Life Is Delicious!

This week a winter warmer, hearty and substantial, good old comfort food.

How to Make Vegetarian Toad in the Hole

Serves 4 – 6 (this is 4 adult appetites and 2 child sized ones, adjust to suit!)


10 vegetarian sausages

350ml milk

4 free range eggs

250g plain flour

1 tsp dijon mustard

4 sprigs fresh thyme, finely chopped

pinch of salt

freshly ground black pepper

5 tbsps vegetable oil


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6
  • whisk together the eggs, milk, and mustard
  • add the flour and whisk together to form a smooth batter
  • stir in the chopped thyme, salt and pepper
  • fry your veggie sausages gently in 1 tbsp oil until nicely browned all over
  • heat 4 tbsps vegetable oil in a large oven proof dish until hot (about 5 minutes)
  • Distribute the sausages evenly over the bottom of the dish and immediately pour in the batter mix
  • Return to the oven and bake for 30 – 40 minutes until risen and golden

Delicious served with veggie gravy!




  1. sounds yummy – you’ve inspired me, it will be lower fat than the classic recipe and they probably won’t notice the lack of meat!

    • Hooray! :-)

  2. It looks lovely, I think I could even get it past my meat lover husband!

    • Give it a try! :-)

    • Thank you, so do I! :-)

  3. Oooh this reminds me that I haven’t made toad in the hole (meaty or veggie) for aaaages! I may just have to give this a go soon. We’re pretty much eating veggie since I went off meat cooking during pregnancy – now baby is 3 months but my husband isn’t missing it and I’ve always been more into veggie food than meat anyway.

    • Hoorah! Do come back and visit often! :-)

  4. Yummy! A good old fashioned dinner – I love toad in the hole and we regularly have it for dinner (although we have to make 2 – one veggie and one carnivore gluten free!) I’ve never put mustard in it though but will definitely try it next time

    • I love a quick, easy, crowd pleasing family dinner and this one is perfect! I hope you enjoy the added mustard! :-)

  5. Mmm, looks great – just perfect for us. Pinned and Stumbled. Thanks for linking up to #recipeoftheweek. New linky up tomorrow :)
