A lot of people reading this might now know what a “Yorkshire Pudding” really is, but this is not so much a pudding, but a tasty dinner side snack. Often served with a Sunday Roast Beef dinner I like them far too much to only have them once in a while, so I have been looking for alternative recipe ideas…
Top 10 Yorkshire Pudding Recipes
10 – Sweet Style
Well, it just doesn’t get any more unusual than this. The maker Gary Kingshott thought that Yorkshires might make for a great dessert as well as a dinner time treat, so come up with this ice cream and strawberry jam style recipe. I really like this and think it is a great use of the original Yorkshires.
9 – Mini Prime Ribs
This recipe like many of them you will see here turns the Yorkshire side order into the main snack. This recipe with roasted prime rib and a horseradish sauce looks and sounds great.
8 – Sausage and Creamy Mash
Is it wrong to admit that I use Aunt Bessie’s ready cooked Yorkshires for Sunday lunch? I do like making my own, but why to go through all that effort when they taste just as good as homemade things. Well, shame aside, I love this meal in a Yorkshire idea and it is also a kind of reversed Toad in the hole. (Toad in the whole is another pancake batter style recipe.)
7 – Meatballs
This recipe is as much as a detour from the original style as it is possible to be. With a mix of Lamb Meatballs that have been seasoned with rosemary & garlic, it is a real mix of style and tastes. Well if you fancy trying it, just click on the image to find the recipe and making guide.
6 – Vegetables and Cheshire Cheese
As far as Yorkshire recipes go this is as healthy as they get. With a nice tangy Cheshire cheese and lots of seasoned vegetables, they are a good treat to have as a side dish at dinner time.
5 – Sandwich
This is not so much a recipe idea, more an epic event of food! I have never heard or indeed seen this before and, to be honest, it blew my mind away. But what does it taste like? Well, I have no idea, but I am more than willing to find out.
4 – Beef with Horseradish
With a pulled beef style and horseradish sauce, this recipe is sure to get people coming back for more. The best bit about this recipe is that they are prepared Yorkshire puddings which I use, so it doesn’t take an awful lot of time to whip them up.
3 – Mushroom Stuffed
I have to admit I do like some nice mushrooms, the bigger the better. These ones with garlic, onion and parsley are sure to be a nice bit-piece style dinner. While not really traditional these would be perfect with fish dinners as well.
2 – Pudding Bowl
The first time I went to Yorkshire and saw a whole Sunday dinner inside a giant Yorkshire pudding, it was like my eyes had been opened for the first time. Why should I settle for the little side order Yorkshires when I could be having my whole meal inside one!
1 – Broccoli, Cheddar & Cottage Cheese
Now these are what I think might well be a perfect Sunday dinner time snack. With a Yorkshire filled with Cheddar and cottage cheese they look too tasty for words and also really healthy as well. Well, I don’t quite know how healthy cottage cheese is, but hey! The Broccoli totally counteracts that!
