Yorkshire Pudding and The finer points of Fox Hunting — 6 Comments

  1. Well hey… I just made a Yorkshire pudding post a couple days ago…
    Shame when all that good drippings just gets used for gravy.
    Keep your head down and i do enjoy reading your blog alot

  2. Oh, I miss the Yorkshire Pudding my dear Great Aunt in Boston (who has passed on many years ago) used to make for me. For any special day for me, whether my birthday, home from college, or I just wanted to stop by, she would make Yorkshire pudding for me. She would pull them out of the oven and toss them on plates with her bare hands, saying “Hot Hot Hot!” and then place a big blob of butter on a plate for the table, and we would eat the Yorkshire Pudding with melty butter. Oh, the memories of the fabulous flavor and texture of the puffy custard bread makes my mouth water even after all the years she has been gone.

  3. Mmm, I love Yorkies. Charles makes them on special occasions. I have never actually made them!

  4. Mmmmm, Yorkshire pudding…. Thanks for the reminder to make them. We rarely have enough drippings so I usually use olive oil with a little butter.
    But we had duck legs relatively recently and we have duck fat! Yorkshire puddings with duck fat will be fabulous, won’t they?

  5. Year on the Grill – one can make both Yorkshire Pudding AND gravy – so one can pour the gravy on the pud.
    Lannae, I call those Popovers – when they’re without the beef fat…. – equally good! (and, yes, very hot)
    Natashya, so easy…. and so easy to eat too much.
    Elizabeth, duck legs; duck fat… You ARE frying potatoes in that fat, aren;t you?

  6. What a question, Katie. Of course, we’re frying potatoes in the duck fat!! (Well, oven-roasting in duck fat, anyway) But if we want to make Yorkshire puddings with the duck fat, I’m going to have to either hide it so there will be enough left OR we’re going to have to have roast duck legs again.
    What to do, what to do… which sacrifice should we make?
    (I think I just answered my own question. Mmmmm…. roast duck legs with Yorkshire pudding…)
