Yorkshire Pudding is a dish that originated in Yorkshire and is made from batter. Yorkshire Pudding is most often served with roast meat. Gravy served with the pudding is often considered essential. Yorkshire pudding was served as a filler to help expensive meats last longer by filling the belly with the cheaper ingredients used to make the pudding.
Yorkshire Pudding is cooked in a large tin under roasting meat in order to catch the dripping fat, can be made in muffin tins with preheated oil, or can be made in the same pan as the meat, taking advantage of the tasty fat and oil left in the pan. Yorkshire Puddings freeze and reconstitute very well.
