Yorkshire Puddings

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by John DOH

Those wonderful "shells" that accompany a good roast of beef, and you can pour gravy into! Easy to do, in a muffin tin, this one's older than I am, and I'm 51 tomorrow!

Top Review by Baby Kato

What a great recipe, these were quick and easy to make Yorkshire pudding. This is the second time I made them. The first time they didn't turn out...my fault I'm sure, the second time they were wonderful. Tender and crisp, the perfect basket for the bacon, pea, onions and mushroom sauce that I used. They were perfect. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag Game.

  8. Melt lard to 1/4" depth (6mm) in each muffin holder at preheated 400 degree oven, then pour in batter in each cup to 5/8" (15 mm) depth (very quickly!) and cook at 400°F for 20 minutes --.
