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."

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. Another hit for us Bergy, the same picky teenager that liked your tuna and noodle casserole liked this a lot!! I used more hamburger and adjusted some of the ingredients to suit doing that.
  5. This was a nice family dinner. None of my four kids cried at the table and they all ate it. some liked it more than others. My husband loved this meal (he is from the UK so this is right up his alley) I will probly usae this as a regular meal.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
