11 ways to eat Yorkshire Puddings

Each February, the first Sunday of the month is designated British Yorkshire Pudding Day. But aside from gracing your roast beef, how else can you put these scrumptious puds to good use?

1. With gravy

It’s traditional to fill them with gravy for a reason – they’re delicious.

2. With eggs

They make great hollows for baked eggs.

3. As a bowl

To be honest, you barely need to bother with a plate.

4. As toad-in-the-hole

Warm, fluffy and chock full of sausages, what’s not to love? Also, it’s an excuse for more gravy.

5. In wrap form

Apparently the Yorkshire pudding rolls up pretty neatly.

6. The ‘Yorkie poutine

This Canadian take on the Yorkshire Pudding involves filling it with chips, meat, gravy and cheese.

7. With ragout

Forget spaghetti, here’s mince in a Yorkshire pudding.

8. As a starter

Planning a three course meal? How about a Yorkshire pudding starter with apple and sage gravy? Yum!

9. As bread

Olive Bread Yorkshire Puddings: I promised I’d post the recipe for these last week, so better late than never, I guess. I’d love to claim full credit for these but this is another of my Mum’s recipe influences which I’ve tweaked just a little. We have them with our Turkish breakfast, but they’re also great as a snack. – – Sift 190g flour into a large bowl with a good pinch of salt and white pepper. Add 150ml milk, 4 beaten eggs, 1 1/2 tsp onion powder and whisk until really smooth. Add another 150ml milk and again whisk again until smooth. Put the batter in the fridge for 20 mins to rest. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 260C and add 1/2 teaspoon of sunflower oil to each round of a 12 hole muffin tray. Put the tray in the oven and allow the oil to heat up, at least 15-20 mins until smoking. Take the batter out of the fridge, stir in 4 tbsp pitted and chopped black olives and 3 tbsp chopped coriander, remove the muffin tray from the oven and quickly and carefully pour in the batter until about 3/4 way up each hole, sprinkle with sesame and nigella seeds, put the tray back in the oven middle shelf, reduce temperature immediately to 220 C and bake for another 20 minutes until browned and risen. – – – #bakingtime #yorkshirepudding #olives #olivebread #mediterraneanfood #mediterraneandiet #zeytin #zeytinli #lezzetli #thekitchn #turkishfood #afiyetolsun #turkishbreakfast #cypriotfood #yemektarifleri #deliciousness #inmykitchen #feedfeed #thekitchn #yummo #eatit #cookit #cookwithlove #instacook #homecooked #homebaked #homemadefood #kidsfood #familyrecipe #f52grams

Olive bread Yorkshire puddings look pretty tasty.

9. With haggis

With Yorkshire Pudding Day coming hot on the heels of Burns Night,  why not combine the two?

10. As pudding

Of course, they don’t have to be savoury. Pudding in a pudding, anyone?

11. Dunked in Nutella

As if you were ever in need of an excuse to eat Nutella…

So whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner, starter, main or pudding, there’s a Yorkshire Pudding out there for you.
