Yorkshire Pudding with Cheese and Chives
Yorkshire Puddings have always been a favorite side dish of mine. So I was nervous to put a spin on this roast dinner classic, but let me tell you: it works! You are going to love this easy Yorkshire pudding recipe.

Yorkshire pudding is a traditional British side dish. It’s not what we “westerners” consider a pudding at all, it’s made of flour, milk, and eggs. It’s common with roast beef dinner and tastes delicious with beef gravy.
Growing up, we had Yorkshire puddings with every roast beef dinner and it’s a tradition that I carry with me now that I have a family of my own.
It was always:
1 cup flour, 1 cup milk, 6 eggs, salt, and pepper.
It’s a classic and you can’t go wrong with that but I wanted to jazz it up a bit for my partnership with Burnbrae Farms and the Holiday Entertaining Guide that myself and a few other Canadian bloggers put together.
I’ve been buying Burnbrae Farms for years. They’re my go-to for liquid egg whites when it comes to my omelets and meringue treats (like these Christmas Meringues with Eggnog Buttercream Filling).
Burnbrae Farms also has Egg Creations! a carton of liquid eggs that are packed with flavor. All you have to do is pour and savour!
The varieties are really yummy:
- Veggie & Feta
- Mushroom & Spinach
- Garden Vegetable
- Cheese & Chive
In this Yorkshire pudding recipe, I use Cheese & Chive.
Cheesy Yorkshire Puddings
Oh yes! There is nothing better than a classic roast beef dinner with Yorkshire puddings and gravy. This photo is making me hungry, and I’m having some major cravings.
The cheese and chive flavor in the Yorkshire pudding is slight, it’s not overpowering at all. My husband complimented me over and over as he piled second (and third) helpings onto his plate.
That gives it the man approved seal of approval.

Can you make Yorkshire pudding batter ahead of time?
Yes. Growing up that’s how my mom always made it. She would have the batter in a Tupperware juice container and use an immersion blender throughout the day to give it a good mix.
What kind of oil do I need for Yorkshire Pudding?
You want something with a low smoke point. I use canola oil but traditionally you should use fat from the roast beef dinner you’re cooking up. I have also used coconut oil with great results!
Oils with a high smoke point are:
I recommend either canola or avocado oil for Yorkshire puddings.
How to make Yorkshire pudding
Be sure to serve these delicious Yorkshire puddings with the perfect pot roast recipe. As for a side dish? I love this three pepper salad.
Note: If you don’t have liquid eggs, sub it for 6 eggs.

My mom is English and she reminisces about these often. I can’t wait to make them for her!

Confession Time: I have never tried Yorkshire Pudding before but you pretty much had me at cheese and chives and roast beef! I skipped breakfast and lunch and really need to stop surfing the web when I am hungry, it is now dinner time around these parts and I wish these could get in me belly right now!
I’ve been there a time or two, whatever you do: don’t go grocery shopping 😉 You’ll buy the whole store haha.

This looks like the perfect side! I love that you served it with roast beef, mashed potatoes and slathered it with gravy! I got hungry just from reading the post! Thanks for the recipe!

Oh my goodness. YES. We are huge fans of Yorkshire pudding in my house. My grandma was from england and always made it growing up so I started for my kids. This way sounds wonderful!
I’ve never heard of Yorkshire Pudding before. This is super neat and I bet the kids would love it!
I grew up on them. They’re delicious!
What a fun little recipe! It’s unique at least for me and I love trying new things!
I feel like I’ve had something like before in a restaurant but can’t remember. It looks both delicious and simple to make. Plus, I have all those ingredients in my house. Looks like this Friday night will be spent in the kitchen.
Have fun Allison!
I am curiousto try this. It seems more savory than sweet.
It is, although it says “pudding” it’s not the type of pudding we are used to 🙂 They’re a carby deliciousness that you pour gravy over.
Wow, those really look good! I’ve never had Yorkshire Pudding before and I can’t wait to give it a try. Love that they’re easy to make too.
