No one quite knows where the name 'toad in the hole came from', but rest assured, this traditional British dish never had any toads in it. History does, however, record many other types of meat other than pork sausages being used as a filling. These include steak, kidney, lamb, and even pigeon. For this recipe, I have stuck with sausages, but gone for venison rather than pork. Venison is leaner than pork, has a more robust flavour, and a strong gamey taste. Based on the brands I used, each serving is about 369 calories.
