Served with simple Side Dishes
Toad in the Hole is a complete meal in itself, but it is often served with onion gravy, mashed potatoes, and mixed vegetables. It can be eaten with garnishes or plain. Some people add a bit of salt and pepper to the batter, and others dress up the meat with spices, particularly if they are cheap cuts of meat. You can use a different type of sausage to give it a different flavour if you want something new.
