Yorkshire Pudding

"This was my ex father in law's recipe for Yorkshire puddings. He was a career cook in the Canadian military. These always turn out light and crispy. Great with a roast dinner and lots of gravy!"

  1. Just was curious about what Yorkshire Pudding was. Decided to try them. Came out just like your picture. A little too greasy for me. But they just popped right out of there. Served them with my homade chilli filled in them. ...tasted pretty good. Can see why y'all like them with gravy.
  2. Made these today and they turned out great! Followed the recipe to the letter and they turned out to be the best yorkshire puddings I've ever made. Never seen them rise to high! Next time I might just try a little less oil in the muffins tins...Will definitely make these again
  3. This was great. It didn't rise as much as it should have. I think I turned down the heat too much. I also had a very dry turkey, and needed the little fat it rendered for gravy, so I used canola oil, which was not very satisfying. This will be repeated with the christmas roast
  4. I just made these and they were great. They rose so well and went perfectly with pot roast. Thanks for such a great recipe.
  5. Worked great - I skipped the room temperature part and they still turned out absolutely perfect. Thank you for a great recipe!
