  • Absolutely, I consider them a necessity.

    Oooh can I have the recipe please.

    Isn't much of a recipe to be honest! Get a mini yorkshire pud, or a vol au vent, or a mini croustade. Put a cocktail sausage in the centre of it, add a spoon of cranberry sauce, and a little bit of wensleydale, and put in the oven for a few mins until all warmed through (the pud/vav/croustade would have already been cooked).
  • Another one for yorkshire here, im i east yorkshire and we (meaning, everyone I know) has them with all roasts.
    I believe all cafes and restaurants serve them with their roasts around here too.

    They will definitely be served with Christmas dinner. My fussy eating kids old never forgive me if they wasnt!

    I agree it's an older generation thing, but I can't get my head around eating them with sweet things, such as syrup, jam and the like.

    Definitely - it wouldn't be Christmas dinner without Yorkshires.

    Me and OH always have them with a roast dinner - when we ate meat with all meats and now we are veggie with whatever veggie option we have

  • No! I don't even know how you could possibly make proper Yorkshire pudding without real beef dripping! Only with beef, or before it.

    I think you must all be talking about Aunt Bessie's

    I'm having beef so will have Yorkshires.

    There seems to be a bit of disagreement amongst the Yorkshire folk about how and when to have them. Pistols at dawn?:D

    Ps went to North Yorkshire on holiday this year and the food was amazing

    How dare you! :p

    I do agree they are best made with animal fat, but that's available separate to a piece of meat.
  • It is not very common now but yes crisps but referred to as Game chips are a traditional accompaniment to poultry its something i learnt many years ago when training to be a chef.
