  1. Being from the South, I had never made Yorkshire Pudding before but wanted to try something new. This turned out beautifully- deliciously crispy on the outside and eggy and moist on the inside. I served it with Mean Chef's Mushroom Gravy and had a warm and cozy meal on a wet and chilly day. I added chopped fresh rosemary to some of the batter and preferred those- just a bit more flavor. This is a great base recipe and I can see all sorts of flavorful additions. I will definitely be making these again.
  2. Really good. I made 6 with the grease from the roast and 6 with olive oil. I prefer the olive oil, actually. The drippings produced a more oily product.
  3. Uncle Bill, these were great!!! I didn't have homogenized milk but I had cream so I put a glug of cream in the measuring cup and filled it up with 1% milk. I used the olive oil.
  4. I used the olive oil to make these yummy yorkshire puddings, follow the recipe to a T and you wont be disappointed. Delicious Uncle Bill.
  5. This was my first time making Yorkshire Pudding. It turned out perfectly! Easy recipe, thank you for sharing!
