The country folk claim that this dish came by its name because it resembled a toad or maybe a frog peeping out of a hole when it had awakened from hibernation. Then when it climbed out of the mud, leaving an imprint of its shape behind, it was just like removing a sausage from the batter in which it had been cooked.
Sounds interesting. And the tale might get your young kids to eat. I've found my kids like a good story behind their meal.
