Sorry you have the wrong photo up here. I love toad in the hole, I also love Melton Mowbray pie which is what you have a piece of showing here. Hope that helps.

You have a picture of a Pork Pie with egg and the recipe is not as I grew up with and have used for many years, use a real "Toad in the hole" recipe please.
