Here are the "secrets to success" for making Yorkshire Puddings and, believe me - roast beef, gravy & yorkies - it just doesn't get any better! Prep time includes "standing".
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
- 1⁄3 cup clarified butter or 1⁄3 cup pan dripping, from a beef roast
- In a medium bowl, whisk eggs just to blend.
- Gradually whisk in milk.
- Sift flour and salt into egg mixture and whisk until well blended and smooth.
- Whisk in all herbs.
- This is the first key to success- let the batter stand at room temperature for AT LEAST 30 minutes!
- While the batter is resting, preheat the oven to 450°F.
- This is the second key to success- the oven must be very hot!
- Re-whisk the batter before using and transfer to large measuring cup or pitcher with a spout so it will be easy to pour.
- Heat muffin tin with 12 muffin cups in oven for 10 minutes.
- This is the third key to success- the muffin tins must be very hot!
- Transfer drippings or melted butter to a measuring cup with a spout so you can easily pour it into the muffin tin.
- Pour about 1 tsp drippings or melted butter in each muffin cup.
- Return pan to oven for about 6 to 8 minutes.
- This is the last key to success- the fat must be very hot!
- Pour batter evenly into the muffin cups onto the hot fat.
- Bake until puddings are golden and puffy, about 12 to 15 minutes.
- Puddings will sink slightly in centre.
- Serve immediately out of oven while still hot.
This came out great! And your "secrets of success" are the same ones my mama taught me! However, I don't think my mother has ever cooked with any herb. My husband loved these so much I am making it again, but trying in one pan and then cutting it. Oh, and here's my new secret - I put the batter in a glass jar with a lid, so I can just shake and pour. :wink:
Hi CountryLady, I could have eaten all 12 by myself! They were great! We made these the other night and we added all fresh herbs from our residents garden! We used flat-leaf parsely, chives &sage we didn't use any thyme. It was truly a wonderful experience! You should have seen everyones face - they thought I was insane when I put the butter in the pan and then put it in the oven -- well this was new and when those popovers first came out of the oven, nice & puffy and then they fell, they kept saying to me that's OK we can make them again and this time they won't "drop". They were wonderful, I can't say that enough! Thank you for sharing, Diane :)
All of those little secrets help to make these extra special. They went together very nicely and the herbs added so much. I prepared these to go with Prime Rib Roast and used the pan drippings from the meat. A definate winner. Thanks for sharing.
