Readers Respond: Different Ways to Serve Yorkshire Puddings

Responses: 8


From the article: Yorkshire Pudding Recipes
Ask anyone what to serve with Yorkshire puddings and the immediate response will usually be Roast Beef, but there are many other ways. These are just 5 of my favorites, do you have any to add to it?

Yorkshire and Sugar

My mother always cooked "Yorkshire" in a separate dish (not under the roast beef as was the custom in its home county). Hence it was not very greasy, and not "crisp and greesy" as the Yorkshire people loved. We were a family of four so when mother cut the Yorkshire into six equal pieces, there were always two pieces remaining. As kids growing up under wartime conditions we did not get many tasty deserts, so Yorkshire with sugar on it was a great treat. I still remember the taste.

My Yorkshires

We love our Yorkshire puddings served before our meal and of course smothered in gorgeous thick tasty gravy and then maybe if there is any room left - to eat with the roast of the day mmmmmm

golden syrup

My husband always wants to see left over yorkshire puddings, so he can have them for pud with golden syrup and dash of custard.

Ice Cream!

We cook *huge* Yorkshire puds, and a favourite here amongst the staff is to have a scoop of ice cream in the middle! Might sound very bizarre, but try it. I'm a recent convert!

Yorkshire Puddings

When I was a student in Sheffield in Yorkshire my landlady used to make her Yorkshire Puddings with onions and herbs. It was delicious.

pudding lover

my family love yorkshire pudding with fruit dropped into the batter and cooked. Fruit like apples blackberries strawberries infact any fruit.

Bubble and Squeak

Left over Yorkshire puds are great filled with a fry up of 'bubble and squeak', another Yorkshire dish made from leftover mashed potatoes and vegetables from Sunday lunch. We always had these for dinner on a Monday when I was a child.

Sugar and lemon juice

My grandmother, who comes from Yorkshire always used to sprinkle cold Yorkshire puddings with a little sugar and drops of fresh lemon juice. Until now I thought this was odd, so am going to try it again.
