This indulgent staple on the British holiday table is served fresh from the oven, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Why Try? Yorkshire pudding is perfect for ‘sopping up’ a roast beef’s natural juices and reduced wine pan sauce.

Modest variations can be made to the traditional recipe; try adding 1/2 cup of finely shredded Cheddar cheese or Stilton Cheese and 1/4 cup of minced fresh chives. Once the pudding goes into the oven, there is ample time to finish cooking fresh vegetables, dish up potatoes, make the reduced wine pan sauce and slice the beef. It’s a nice touch to seat and serve the family or guests and then pass the Yorkshire pudding hot and fresh out of the oven.
