Cordon Bennett ...
I needed another option on the poll:
"Yes, because I'm the kind of freak who would eat that!"
Brit supermarket chain Morrisons has sacked 1,500 middle managers – but fear not, they’ve also vomited out an unholy creation that is part pizza, part Yorkshire pudding. The 6½” thing is made by filling an oversized Yorkie Pud with tomato sauce, cheese and typical pizza toppings. A photo of this strangely alluring monstrosity …
Looked up Munchie Box ........ Yes I would eat that :)
Possibly only once but there are worse ways to go !!!
In terms of the Yorkshire / Pizza fusion, I would not find it repulsive BUT possible a little much for one.
I am tempted now to try a Yorkshire / Rogan Josh Fusion with Pilau Rice, of Course. :)
Nah. I just can't see the tomato going with the gravy. Or the cheese.
Perhaps if they went a bit different. Base the pizza on Fiorentina. Which is spinach and egg, but add sausage.
So you half bake your yorkie, then quickly open the oven and top with spinach and a couple of raw eggs. Oh, plus some sausage, make it Italian if you want to pretend authenticity. I'd argue that ship sailed long ago... Then back in the oven for them to cook. Then top with lots of lovely onion gravy.
Admittedly what I've basically done here is add eggs to toad in the hole, and hidden a few sad vitamins in it with the spinach, that nobody is going to notice.
Freeze the thing in a domestic freezer. When time to cook, cover two Mars-bars in liquid nitrogen and, when down to temperature, remove them from the liquid and shatter them with a hammer.
Place the shattered Mars-bars atop the frozen Yorkshire-pizza thingie, and immerse in a thick beer batter.
Remove coated delicacy from batter and deep-fry.
Server together with Tennant's Super or white cider.
The pizza they put on my platter
Was like a deep-pan only fatter.
I muttered "Lord save me,
They've served it with gravy
And in place of the base they've put batter".
I started - with some trepidation -
To tackle this hybrid creation,
But to my delight
The thing tasted all right
So I finished with no hesitation.
I washed it all down with some bitter,
Let nobody say I'm a quitter.
And after, I reckoned
I fancied a second -
Then I spent the whole night on the sh**ter.
Why not go the whole hog of food
This Yorkshire Pizza with a topping of "The hottest ever supermarket curry" that Morrison's also recently did and some nice spring rolls and prawn crackers on the side
This looks like only one course. It should be expanded.
Yorkshire pudding filled with slices of salmon and avocado, drizzled with gespatcho and radish trimmings.
Yorkshire pudding filled with haggis and rice in a white wine sauce.
Yorkshire pudding inverted over steamed vegetables and lardons.
Yorkshire Pizza (as pictured), side Yorkshire pudding filled with mini Yorkshire puddings (and gravy)
Yorkshire pudding filled with sushi selection, side Yorkshire pudding filled with alligator chunks seasoned in vodka.
Yorkshire pudding, frozen, filled with apple and mango sorbet. With gravy.
I get that. Mostly when my body is warning me there's a bout of projectile vomiting on its way.
I love a 'bucket of Yorkshire' but tend to stick to filled with casserole, roast meat, sausages, vegetables, in some combination. This one doesn't appeal.
According to their slogan Morrisons make it... make it what? An outstanding example of really bad genetic engineering.
Disturbingly advice from Morrisons has been given : ...there would be minimal, if any, risk of serious toxic reaction should a small amount, in relation to body weight, of pudding be consumed on a one-off basis.”
I suppose i'd try it but only if i get some dog food to wash away the bad taste afterwards :)
Being an Aussie that has been no where near a Yorkshire pudding, I had to look it up. Seems to basically be a batter made with eggs. Since I'm highly allergic to eggs, I'd have to make this sort of pizza thingy without eggs. So it just becomes a very very very deep dish pizza. I could eat that, just keep me away from the eggs.
Any horrified Yorkshire pudding eaters should enlighten me about what a pudding really is, if Wikipedia lied to me.
Purely in the interests of science, I would go out drinking on a Friday night and consume one of these when I got home.
Then on the Saturday, again in the interests of science, make a pizza covered in roast beef, roast potatoes and (as described by Richard Sharpe to a French officer in one of the books in Bernard Cornwell's series) "a gravy thick enough to choke a rat" for post-pub consumption that night.
The Sunday is likely to include some up close research in to the plumbing facilities.
I'd give it to my son with tomato ketchup on top as a way of getting him to eat the 3 types of "vegetable" that he will eat all at once. (Ok, we have to stretch the definition of vegetable - tomato ketchup is pretty close, pizza is a bit more dubious but does contain vegetables in the topping, and as he has yorkshire pudding with all roast meats then it must be a vegetable as it is clearly not meat!)
The only way to make proper YP: Heat cast iron pan in HOT oven. Pour in dripping (you WANT it to smoke!). Add batter, bang back into HOT oven. Pull when done. Nick the top of each pud to let the steam out (unless you like 'em soggy inside). Serve hot.
I've done this with all kinds of cast iron, ranging from a dozen small muffins, to 8 quart dutch oven, to skillets ranging from 4" to 18", to individual cob-shaped cornbread pans. They all work. The key is HOT (I think I already mentioned that ... ).
You're on your own for the batter. Ask yer gran. I use mine immediately, although some seem to think that letting it sit for awhile works better. For dripping, only proper dripping from actual meat will do.
