    Morning :)

    I've found the recipe on the WW app for Toad In The Hole which is 8pp each serving. However, my sausages that I'm using are a bit more PP than the recipe says. So I tried to edit it in the recipe builder but it comes out at 33pp per serving! Which isn't right :(

    Could someone tell me how much a basic Yorkshire batter is in PP and also how much Yorkshire that makes??? I'm having 2 sausages and my fella is having 4 so need quite a bit I think??? I've never made this dish before so I have no clue about how much batter to use???

    I don't understand the recipe builder!!! Thank you :)

    My yorkie mix serves 4 people and comes out at 4pp per serving.... Its basically

    4oz plain flour
    2 eggs
    8 fl oz skim milk

    If I'm doing toad in the hole I use this much for 2 of us, but divide it into 3 (other half gets 2 portions, I get 1) which brings the batter out at 6pp plus the pps for the sausages - if that makes sense?

    Thanks tonic. What I've done is used the WW recipe and added the extra points for the sausages. Should be ok that way I think. I can't wait! It's cooking as we speak..... Mmmmmm! Thanks again for your response :) x

    I actually found that the batter mix packs you buy and add water and egg to are lower than making your own. I have used both the sainsbury's basics and asda smart price mixes (both a bargain 9p each!) and they are just 7pp for the pack plus 2pp for the egg! So just 2pp per serving if there's four of you. Must admit dh and I just have it between the two of us cos we're fiends for toad! The Yorkshire rises wonderfully and tastes great. I make it with Sainsbury's be good to yourself frozen sausages (I defrost them first) and they are 2pp each.

    I bought a couple of packets of the Basics one in case my OH demanded pancakes the other week - he didn't so I used it to make 12 indvidual yorkshires and they rose a treat and were really nice. I worked it out to be 1pps per yorkie. We had one each and the rest are in the freezer - at 7p fraction of the price of Aunt Bessies! Will have to have a go at a toad.

    That is a fantastic idea. Or cut a normal low fat sausage into 4 and put a piece in each. I know what I'm going to be trying next time!

    Right, this is my dinner tonight :D

    I bought one of the packet mixes from Tesco (7p ;-) ) can someone tell me if I work this out correctly....

    Per 100g
    Protein -7.8
    Carbs - 35.0
    Fat - 6.2
    Fibre - 2.5

    The whole pack is 128g so I work that out as 8pp. Plus 1 egg is 10pp for the batter.

    I'll have half and my fella will have half, which means 5pp for the batter, plus x 2 BGTY sausages 2pp each. 9pp all together. Is that right???? x
