It can be roast beef, but equally lamb, chicken or pork can be the star attraction in a Full Sunday Roast. No matter which meat you choose,however, to make a traditional British Sunday lunch there must be Yorkshire puddings.

2. Toad in the Hole

This Toad in the Hole recipe turns Yorkshire Pudding into a filling meal with the addition of sausages. Just where the name comes from no-one knows but originally the dish used sausage meat, so the finished dish probably resembled toads in the batter? No matter its origins it makes a delicious supper dish served with gravy and fresh vegetables, and children love it.

3. Fill Her Up - Irish Stew

"Filled" Yorkshire Puddings are very popular in British food, especially in the British pub. The pudding becomes a vessel to hold any number of great fillings, creating a complete meal in one. Any kind of stew or casserole can be tipped into the pudding as well as vegetables and gravy. For filled Yorkshire puds it is best to make dinner-plate sized puddings, as the small ones made in a muffin tin won't hold enough filling.

4. Vegetarian? Try a Chilli

Yorkshire puddings are not just vessels for savory food. As a Yorkshire pudding batter is not unlike a crepe batter, though cooked differently they do have a similar flavor which makes the puds perfect for sweet fillings. Practically any spread, jam or syrup poured onto a pancake will taste just as good on a Yorkshire pudding. A traditional way to serve the puddings in Yorkshire is a drizzle of Raspberry Vinegar, and as a child I always hoped there would be leftover puddings at Sunday lunch because spread with a little Golden Syrup was always a special treat.
