This must be cook-from-different-cultures week. Jewish Matzoh Brie for breakfast, Indian Curry for dinner last night, and now English Yorkshire Pudding tonight. Now, I've never had Yorkshire Pudding, and until I Wikipedia-ed it, so I had no idea what it was. I really thought it'd be like our American pudding — ultra-creamy and sort of gravy-like.
But the magic of the internet revealed something very different, something more like a bread or biscuit. When I first blogged about my new European vegan cookbook, Vegan Rustic Cooking by Diana White, my friend John P asked me to try the Yorkshire Pudding with Vegan Sausage. So I did. But mine didn't come out looking at all like the pictures I saw on the internet:
Mine looks and tastes more like a muffin with little chunks of cooked Gimme Lean sausage. Yummy, but probably not the texture it's supposed to be. But since I didn't know any better, I enjoyed my sausage muffins.
As the book suggests, I served some Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Parsnips on the side:
And I added a serving of sweet potatoes after I snapped the picture because I'm a hungry girl.
Has anyone tried Yorkshire pudding? What are the taste and texture supposed to be like?
