Fill Up the Pudding with Irish Stew
"Filled" Yorkshire Puddings are very popular in British food, especially in the British pub. The pudding becomes a vessel to hold any number of great fillings, creating a complete meal in one. Any stew or casserole can be tipped into the pudding as well as vegetables and gravy. For filled Yorkshire puds it is best to make dinner-plate sized puddings, as the small ones made in a muffin tin won't hold enough filling.Continue to 5 of 5 below.

And For Those with a Sweet Tooth
Yorkshire puddings are not just vessels for savoury food. As a Yorkshire pudding batter is not unlike a crepe batter - though cooked differently - they do have a similar flavour which makes the puds perfect for sweet fillings. Practically any spread, jam or syrup poured onto a pancake will taste just as good on a Yorkshire pudding.
A traditional way to serve the puddings in Yorkshire is a drizzle of Raspberry Vinegar, and as a child, I always hoped there would be leftover puddings at Sunday lunch... because spread with a little Golden SSyrup was always a special treat. Ice cream is also a great filling, in which case make small puddings.
