Hamburger and Yorkshire pudding

This is similar to" Toad in the hole", just a slightly different version. Love it on a blustery night. Instead of meatballs take a shortcut (shown in the photo) use sausages - I used hot Italian and made only half the recipe. Worked well. I browned the sausages for 15 minutes in the oven before pouring in the Ice Cold Yorkshire Pudding. The Yorkshire was light and tasty.

What a wonderful idea! I would have rated this a 5-star if only so many meatballs had not fallen apart when browning. They were certainly tasty, but next time I will make them firmer by adding breadcrumbs. My family had this tonight (I doubled the recipe and used a bigger pan) for dinner and I will make it again.

This is a great and different recipe. I made the meatballs and baked them on a foil lined pan for about 10-15 mins. They stayed together perfectly. I served it with brown gravy. The whole family loved it!

I made this dish for a special meal and thought it was mediocre at best. The meatballs fell apart and the yorkshire pudding was flat, heavy and crusty. It also barely fed one hungry man, a starving nursing mom and a disinterested toddler. I will not make this one again.
