Why not be different and throw
a Yorkshire Pudding brunch, lunch or evening party to celebrate
British Yorkshire Pudding Day (the 1st Sunday in February) ....or at any
time of the year.
Providing you follow our instructions for making perfect
Yorkshire Pudding, you can make all the mini Yorkshires well before hand then
fill and reheat as and when needed. You can even serve dessert ones - think "pancake"
and fill with sweetened fruit etc.
You don't have to only serve Yorkshire canapés at your
whichever and however many you choose to serve, your guests will be delighted.
It's easier to cook the Yorkshires well beforehand then
allow to cool before filling. So long as they've risen and "set" they won't fall
flat once cool. It's therefore important to give them the maximum possible
time in the oven to brown and crisp.
Cook the fillings separately then just before serving,
place the Yorkshires in a very hot oven for 3-5 minutes to heat through then
fill with the hot fillings and serve immediately.
Mini Yorkshires can be filled with just about anything including
vegetarian fillings. You can also season the batter with herbs such as
thyme or sage for extra flavour. Here are just a few suggestions
Rare Roast beef
slices with Horseradish
Small Bacon Rolls
Sautéed Wild Porcini
Stilton & Onion
(place a small cube of Stilton in the Yorkshires
before re-heating them then top with fried onions)
Sautéed Spinach with
Chicken in Cream
Tomato and Basil
Don't forget about sweet
ones too from simple jam and cream to sweetened fruit compotes or
sliced bananas with a thick chocolate sauce.
