Low Carb Toad In The Hole

  • 8g of carbs
  • 30 mins
  • Serves 4


  • 6-8 low carb sausages

  • For the batter:
  • 50g gram flour (chickpea flour), sifted
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 150ml almond milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Salt & pepper to season


  1. Preheat oven to 200℃/400℉/gas mark 6.
  2. Bake sausages in the oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. While the sausages are cooking, prepare the batter. Whisk together the gram flour, baking powder, eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Continue to whisk until the batter is smooth and free from lumps.
  4. Remove the sausages from the oven and turn the temperature up to 210℃/415℉/between gas mark 6 and 7.
  5. Choose a baking dish that is a suitable size for a toad in the hole. Grease the dish with butter or oil to prevent sticking.
  6. Place the sausages in the dish and pour the batter into the dish. Gently shake the dish so the batter is evenly distributed between the sausages.
  7. Bake the toad in the hole for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the oven temperature down below 200℃/400℉/gas mark 6 and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Do not open the oven door until the toad in the hole has been in the oven for at least 15 minutes, otherwise the batter may collapse.
  8. When the batter has risen and is at the desired crispness, remove from oven and serve.

I love nothing more than a comforting toad in the hole throughout the winter. I typically serve it with low carb vegetables and onion gravy.

The recipe for the batter can also be used to make Yorkshire puddings!

If you need to reduce your fat intake, for health reasons, you can substitute the sausages for low fat ones. Make sure you keep an eye on the carb level of the low fat sausages as they can often be higher in carbs.
