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

Tiggles Sun 27-Jan-13 15:56:22

YABU simply for saying they have no flavour!
(As to having an extra roastie, YANBU grin.)

Ooh no with lashings of gravy then cold later with jam or golden syrup ....

Yorkshire puddings are the food of the gods. And there's a simple answer to space issue - get bigger plates grin.

they are a good filler.
i am considering toad in the hole, same batter but definately better than plain sausages

Although for extra roasties... Nah, just pile it up.

YPs look good and add texture.

YABVU. The Yorkshire pud is way superior to the potato.

Can I have yours please?

McNewPants2013 Sun 27-Jan-13 15:59:37

I think I need a new recipe then smile I use a basic one cooked in the juices of the beef

YAB so utterly U there should be a whole new section just for this thread. Yorkshire puddings are delicious.

What a vile thread title.

Yorkies are the best bit if a roadt

You are clearly eating the Wrong Sort of Yorkshire Puddings.

Petsinmypudenda Sun 27-Jan-13 16:00:18

Of a roast even

This may be the worst thing I have ever seen on MN

If someone served me a roast with out YPs I would literally cry with sorrow and confusion

And never speak to them again

More for me then!

DH makes amazing gluten free ones (he's a coeliac)

...smothered in gravy, maybe a bit of cranberry sauce or something... <drool>

A recent favourite meal has been a homemade toad in the hole but with bacon instead of sausage (frog in the hole? Newt in the hole?!)

Hungry now. And I don't think we have enough eggs left to make yorkies tonight sad

So YABU on two counts - one for being totally and utterly WRONG, two for making me hungry! grin

McNewPants2013 Sun 27-Jan-13 16:02:57

May have to dig out the hard hat, I don't see this thread ending well

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Sun 27-Jan-13 16:03:51

YABU They are amazing.

Sometimes I have them as a meal, just yorkshire puddings.

pixi2 Sun 27-Jan-13 16:06:01

YABVVU. They are delicious and the first thing everyone goes for.

pud1 Sun 27-Jan-13 16:07:14

quite possibly the most unreasonable thread I have ever read. they are the best bit. as for the extra roastie you just need to get a bigger plate. ffs some people make me sick

diddl Sun 27-Jan-13 16:07:40

No flavour??

You´re making them wrong!

fuzzpig Sun 27-Jan-13 16:08:40

I couldn't believe all the hooha at Xmas on here about the fact that yorkies are not a traditional part of Xmas dinner. Sod tradition I say!

At a pub last year I had a giant Yorkshire pudding wrap filled with roast pork and stuffing, with apple sauce for dipping. <foodgasm>

Well I really like them too. But I suppose when you think about it they are a bit tasteless.
