Yorkshire pudding is a common English side dish consisting of a baked pudding made from a batter consisting of eggs, flour, and milk or water. It is also a yummy and traditional addition to the holiday feast. Here is a step by step guide on how to make Yorkshire puddings.
If you intend to make this at home, the timing has to be just right. Preparing the mixture the evening before helps. The secret to getting gloriously puffed-up Yorkshires is to have the fat sizzling hot and don’t open the oven door!
