History of Yorkshire Pudding

According to BBC Yorkshire Pudding was originally used as a first course filler for those who could not afford much meat. Years ago, when the meat was cooked on a spit or trivitt, the batter was put underneath and the fat and meat juice dripped onto the batter. If there wasn’t enough meat to go around the children would get Yorkshire pudding and gravy as their main meal. Now the dish is almost always served with a roast beef main course to form part of a ‘traditional English dinner’. In England, it is often served on its own filled with onion gravy so that it acts as a form of edible soup bowl.
