To think that Yorkshire puddings do not go in a Christmas dinner?

A traditional Christmas dinner that is. Yorkshire puddings are for roast beef surely? Not turkey and ham. What if the pudding accidentally touches the cranberry sauce? Xmas Envy

Yorkshire’s are marvellous inventions. Shove on your starter, have them with your main, eat with syrup for pudding.

Yorkshire puds go with everything.


yorkshiregodscountry · 19/12/2019 23:51

Of course they belong on a Christmas dinner!


PickAChew · 19/12/2019 23:53

Yanbu but some people like them and surely the best celebratory dinner is one you enjoy.

Peas, mind. They have no place at all. Shelly, round fuckers.


MrsTWH · 19/12/2019 23:53

YABVU. Yorkshire puds literally go with everything. We have them with any kind of roast!


Rosspoldarkssaddle · 19/12/2019 23:53

YPs go with all meats. If they only came with beef, I would be distraught. Apple sauce with Turkey, tastes great with YPs as well.


ElizabethMainwaring · 19/12/2019 23:53

YABU. Yorkshires go with everything. Mind you, I don't eat meat. But I don't understand how they intrinsically go with beef but not turkey.


GlummyMcGlummerson · 19/12/2019 23:53

They absolutely do! I'd quite honestly just have a pile of Yorkshire's and a jug of gravy, sod the meat Grin


Sweetheart1313 · 19/12/2019 23:54

YABVU! If there's gravy with a meal it should always come with Yorkshire pudding. They're hands down the best part of any roast dinner.


DingDongMerrilyOnThigh · 19/12/2019 23:54

Yorkshire puddings are good with anything. I don't usually make them at Xmas just because of lack of oven space.

What if the pudding accidentally touches the cranberry sauce?
My northern mother would sometimes serve Yorkshire pud (a baking tray sized one) with golden syrup as a desert. So I'm pretty sure cranberry sauce would work well with it.


nowaypose · 19/12/2019 23:54

YANBU. My DH disagrees and last year rebelled by making his own for his plate Grin. They’re great with a Sunday roast but not for Christmas dinner imo and I say this as someone from Yorkshire.


DramaAlpaca · 19/12/2019 23:54

As a child we never had Yorkshire puds with Christmas dinner, it just wasn't done. Since I've been an adult they've been firmly back on the menu. I have them with any roast, not just beef, because they are delicious & my DC love them. YABtotallyU.


Leaannb · 19/12/2019 23:55

I miss yorkshire puddings....Its been years. I hope to have some next week when Im seeing my son


QuestionableMushroom · 19/12/2019 23:55

I like horseradish with my Christmas dinner OP. You’d hate it round ours.


Gibbonsgibbonsgibbons · 19/12/2019 23:55

We have roast beef for Christmas Dinner Xmas Grin


Londonmummy66 · 19/12/2019 23:56

I'd happily have DM's yorkshires and gravy and skip the rest of Christmas dinner...


Hushabyelullaby · 19/12/2019 23:56



anxioussue · 19/12/2019 23:57

Yabvvvvu they belong with every roast dinner


MsPepperPotts · 19/12/2019 23:59

Well my teenage grandsons would say YADBVVVVVU
There would be a riot if Yorkshires were not on the table Grin


LolaSmiles · 19/12/2019 23:59

They don't go in Christmas dinner, but every year I feel they should.
The conclusion I came to is there's not enough space or time to make them with a Christmas dinner.


TrainspottingWelsh · 19/12/2019 23:59

Yanbu, but as some twisted fucker decided sprouts, the putrid green balls of evil, should be traditional I don't see any harm including something tasty that just doesn't really go with turkey.


Sparklesocks · 20/12/2019 00:00

They go with mine. My dinner, my rules Grin


MrsBungle · 20/12/2019 00:02

My dd was outraged today that there were no Yorkshire’s on her school Christmas dinner. I had to tell her that, although we have them, it’s not traditional. I never had them on a Christmas dinner whilst growing up but I’ve come to appreciate their marvellousness and now we have them.


Nearlytherenow123 · 20/12/2019 00:05

Yorkshire puddings with every roast - xmas dinner included! Otherwise it just isn't a roast dinner
