Making one tomorrow and won't be bothering with yorkshire puddings, don't care for them at all. I think they're the weakest part of the meal. My other half is aghast at this. wondering what everyone else's perfect Sunday dinner includes

You can’t be bothered with Yorkshire puddings ... your dh should divorce you!!! The best bit with every roast, especially beef!

Squidgee · 29/09/2018 18:16

Roast Beef, Yorkshire Puddings, roast potatoes, boiled new potatoes, then a choice of 3 veg from broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cabbage, peas, green beans or runner beans, all covered in home made gravy made with proper dripping.

Ew, yorkshires are only for Beef. Crackling for Pork obvs.
My fave is lamb, spuds, peas, stuffing, gravy. Simple but the best. Or for Christmas - turkey, packet and fresh stuffing, spuds, peas, parsnips, pigs in blanket and gravy. I’m hungry now!

ACatsNoHelpWithThat · 29/09/2018 18:23

Roast pork with crackling, pigs in blankets (made with streaky bacon and mini frankfurters from Lidl) or sage and onion stuffing, roast potatoes, roast parsnips, yorkshire pudding, cauliflower cheese or creamed spinach, peas and gravy. Followed by an epic mid-afternoon slump Blush

bridgetreilly · 29/09/2018 18:23

Roast pheasant, bread sauce, stuffing, game chips, mashed potato, sausage in bacon, veg, yorkshire puddings. I don't think I've ever managed this all on one plate, but I live in hope.

HashTagLil · 29/09/2018 18:23

Your DP should LTB OP. Shocking!

Roast dinner for me would be lamb, roast potato, yorkshire puddings, broccoli, mint sauce and gravy. And a spoon to eat the minty gravy left on the plate. I'm drooling now.

tillytoodles1 · 29/09/2018 18:24

Any roast meat, but must include Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, gravy, cauliflower cheese, other veg such as carrots and peas and both horseradish and mint sauce. Plus a bottle of red wine.

SilverOnToast · 29/09/2018 18:26

Sprouts must be either roasted or fried with bacon, then eaten with roasted carrots, parsnips and potatoes with roast beef or chicken (I love a whole chicken with lemon and white wine, or if I’m lazier chicken wings with Nando’s rub).

ToadOfSadness · 29/09/2018 18:26

Quorn roast (can't stand nut roast things), Yorkshires, roast and mash potatoes, cabbage, carrots and peas, roast parsnips and lots of thick gravy without added flavours like mint and stuff.
