Toad in the Hole



Dishes like Toad in the Hole appeared in print as early as 1762, where it was described as a "vulgar" name for a "small piece of beef baked in a large pudding". Toad in the Hole was originally created as a way to stretch out meat in poor households. These days it is still a delicious meal eaten by everyone.
