Today's Reason to Celebrate

National Yorkshire Pudding Day

Today is National Yorkshire Pudding Day! Yorkshire pudding is an iconic British pastry similar to a popover. The first recipes for the dish appeared in the 1700s, but the exact origin is unknown. Yorkshire Pudding is made by combining flour, eggs, salt, milk, and pan drippings from prime rib or roast beef. The result is a light, doughy roll with a small well in the center that is usually filled with gravy. 

Yorkshire Pudding is still a very popular dish in modern-day Britain, and often makes an appearance at big Sunday dinners. In fact, culinary historians refer to it as the national dish of England. To celebrate National Yorkshire Pudding Day, make a delicious homemade batch to enjoy with your family!
