To say Yorkshire puddings are pointless

There is no flavour to them, and take up space on the plate that could mean an extra roast potato

Yum yum, yum yum, yum yum.

Yabvvvvvvu. Yorkshires filled with gravy, wiped around the plate to clean up the remnants of mash and meat.

Sorry to bump this thread but after trying loads of different recipes I now think Yorkshire puddings are the food of gods.

Yay! Glad to hear that OP!

grin of course. You HAD to have been doing it wrong.

I would happily give up both the meat AND the veg and just have a plateful of my delicious yorkies.

Sacrilege! Yorkshire Puds are fantastic - home made that is. I wouldn't call the ones you can buy ready made YPs, more like bits of rubber.

I will sometimes do a toad, either with sausages or a lamb chop in one half of the dish and put fruit in the other half for pudding. Plums, nectarines, cherries, etc. All the juices run into the pudding. Yum Yum Yum.

I love leftover yorkshires cold with jam. Gorgeous.

Yay, i love yorkshire pudding, especially massive ones with everything crammed in and loads of gravy.

KikeriFreedomCastle Sun 16-Jun-13 15:52:27

I don't like them, they're just stodge in my opinion, but I'm probably in minority thinking this. The children love them, however. I always give them mine if we have them.

Put a roast potato in the middle of the Yorkshire pudding, and add lashings of gravy.

The only problem I have now is the DC, they are waiting in the kitchen as soon as I put them in the oven the oldest is the worst since he has learned to count.

I once went to a pub where they served Yorkshire puddings flattened and used as a wrap for roast beef, came with a little pot of onion gravy for dipping.

DIVINE

Apparently they used to do it to use up the leftovers from Sunday……………. (whats that then?)

And then realised they were on a winner with people coming in just from the Yorkie Wrap.

Yorkshire puddings are amazing. DS1 likes a whole big one to himself these days. My grandma used to make them every Sunday.
