Simple Yorkshire Puddings

Yorkshire puddings are so easy to make! I am going to be sharing a few of my favourite recipes to include in a roast dinner over the next few days, but I thought I’d start with one of the most simple yet essential items on your roast dinner plate. The Yorkshire Pudding!

Bam Bam’s favourite part to a roast dinner, he likes to fill them with gravy and pretty much use it as a cup until it’s completely soggy. Then he’ll finish it off and begin on another! Nugget is beginning to pick up on this habit as he is fast becoming a slightly smaller, albeit stockier, version of his older brother! Boy, I think I am in for trouble soon!

You can see Nugget processing his older brothers actions throughout the day. He watches intently and tries his best to mimic his brother’s behaviour and actions…. and whilst I bathe in the wonderment of two little brothers bonding, my idle bubble of observation is quickly burst when a toddler tantrum suddenly erupts and the little one quickly follows suit and begins to cry and/or scream in support of his big brothers actions. Yeah, this mimicking behaviour isn’t always so great….. it’s sometimes a little scary!
