Yorkshire Pudding

My father-in-law is from England, so Yorkshire Pudding was a staple in their home. I know there are several recipes for it, but this is the one I learned from my Mother-in-law.

Ingredients

2 cups Milk
3 Eggs
1 1/2 cups Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
About 1/4 cup rendered beef or pork fat, olive oil or melted butter

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. In the mixer beat together milk and eggs. Add flour and salt and blend until smooth. Batter should rest for 2 house in the refrigerator in a non metal container.  In muffin tin place 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of fat. Heat muffin tin with the fat in it for 5 minutes. Remove batter from refrigerator and stir with a wooden spoon. Pour batter into hot tins, filling each tin 3/4 full. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with gravy.

Brown 1 lb Sausage in a cast iron skillet. (We prefer Irish Sausage) Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Remove batter from refrigerator and stir with a wooden spoon. Pour batter into hot tins, filling each tin 3/4 full. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with gravy.
