This is an English recipe based on Yorkshire pudding. It is excellent and so easy. Some tips: 1. have done this in large muffin tins with bulk sausage also place cut onion in with sausage 2. the tins must be very hot, smoking hot for the egg & flour mixture. 3. I cook the sausage in muffin tins or in a pan after the sausages are cooked immediately place Yorkshire mix in pan and bake. 4. I used 4 large eggs, 1 cup milk, 2 cups flour, mustard and Worchester sauce, garlic powder, salt & pepper. 5. This is traditionally served with onion gravy.
