What Makes This Air Fryer Toad In The Hole Recipe So Great

Usually, Toad in the Hole is made in one large pan, basically like a cake pan. However, I just had to try it in the air fryer since I mastered how to cook cakes in it and other recipes that use batter.

It turned out absolutely perfect and just as delicious as I remember it. I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

This Air Fryer Toad In A Hole is actually quite delicious in the air fryer. It is, however, a bit different from the oven-baked one.

The batter is a little crispier than the oven version but I quite like that change. The sausages are still deliciously juicy on the inside. It’s one of those comfort food main dishes that just seems to make all of life’s troubles melt away as you eat it.

If you’re looking for a quick dish that’s easy to toss together and leave to cook, Toad in the Hole is definitely the dish for you.

I love making this recipe simply because I don’t always have time for a ton of ingredients to be prepped before the cooking begins.

This recipe is very easy and very filling, which usually means leftovers are guaranteed, and I never complain about leftovers.

Why Is Toad In The Hole Called Toad In The Hole?

Toad in the Hole is quite a unique name for a recipe as well as a long one. The little legend goes that a golf course was overrun by toads and it was during the time of a big tournament.

A golfer landed a stroke, with the ball falling into the hole as it should. However, the ball came right back out because it landed on the head of a toad trying to sleep.

Therefore, a chef at the tournament created the Toad in a Hole dish to represent the funny incident that day.

Toad in the Hole is an English dish that was created back in the late 1700s as a way to make meat last longer since households were large and meat was scarce.

Batter and bread were a cheaper means of filling little bellies without too much meat.

The recipe has lasted for many years and is now eaten all over the world because let me tell you, it’s delicious.

How To Make Toad In The Hole

  1. Mix Dry Ingredients. In a medium bowl, mix flour, salt, and pepper.
  2. Add Wet Ingredients. Make a well in the middle and break in the eggs and milk. Whisk the eggs and milk and then mix slowly into the flour. You want a batter that’s about as thick as pancake batter. If it’s too thick, add water or milk. Cover the batter and let it rest while you finish the rest of the steps.
  3. Cook Sausage. Put oil into a heatproof 6 x 3 pan. Cut sausages in half and place them into the oil. Set the air fryer to 400F for 15 minutes.
