An amazing sort of bread rolls, very easy to make and even easier to eat. This is how to make yorkshire pudding with a non traditional yorkshire pudding filling.
Puffy, airy, hollow and a pleasure to have on your table. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
I intended to serve those for breakfast but kids came home from school, saw them and guess what gobbled them in less than 15 minutes😳. I was going to take some more pictures , but they were gone 😁.
One of my kids enjoyed these as a sweet snack with some honey and butter. The other two loved it as is, filled with Labneh and roast beef slices.
I am not from Yorkshire and I have never tried this English staple before, but let me tell you a piece of cooking advice here, you need to try it. It came out perfect from the first try... this is one of my highly recommended recipes and I intend to make this for my friends on our next gathering.
This week, we had our Spring break, it was a much needed break for all of us . Last week has been so stressful, many exams, school projects to finish off the quarter, teacher appreciation, Pi day volunteering ..... etc.
If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen the bowling place we went to yesterday. It was so much fun for the 5 of us.
We went to this restaurant and the waitress there told us, you need to hurry we have only 11 minutes left and the the happy hour will end. Naively, I asked " what do you offer in the happy hour?" . She replied alcohol 🥂. I have to say that even after 11 years of being in the US, sometimes I still feel like an alien 👽.
Back to our English recipe, I followed Gordon Ramsy's recipe and it was a hit, so let's see
Simply whisk eggs with salt in a deep bowl then add milk and flour. You'll end up with a runny batter, refrigerate for two hours.
Gordon's trick to make a gorgeous puddings is to make sure your baking cups are so hot and the batter is cold. So, add about a teaspoon of oil in each of the muffin cups, pop it in the oven until it is almost smoking hot.
Pour 1/4 cup of the batter in each cup and cook undisturbed for 20 minutes and do not open the oven's door, this is another crucial tip.
While the puddings are baking prepare your filling, I mixed up the cheese, za'atar and olive oil and prepared my roast beef slices.
Take a bite and you'll fall head over heals. These can be made and kept in the fridge for 3 days until you are ready to bake and serve.
The puddings are traditionally served with gravy, roast beef and vegetables. But really they are very good any time of the day, I loved them paired with these Za'atar Labneh but ofcourse you can chose to serve them with whatever you like.
