Our whole family is obsessed with these Yorkshire puddings with pigs in blankets inside them. We call them PIB in the hole in our house, but they’re essentially mini Yorkshire puddings with pigs in blankets in them. What’s not to love? As well as being a ridiculously easy recipe for Yorkshire puddings, we believe this recipe creates THE ULTIMATE Yorkshire puddings. They rise so high, are super fluffy but have a delicious crunch to them. Everything a Yorkshire pudding should be. You can use this as a Christmas leftovers recipe and use up leftover pigs in blankets, or use it as an idea for a leftovers stuffing recipe!
– 2 packs of our The Jolly Hog Black Treacle Bacon Wrapped British Pigs in Blankets
– 2 free range eggs
– Plain flour
– Salt and pepper to taste.
– Sprigs of thyme or rosemary
– Veg oil
– If your pigs in blankets aren’t cooked yet, cook them according to pack instructions. If not, leave them for now and we’ll heat them up later!
– Pre heat the oven to 200c.
– Put oil in your baking tray in each well for the Yorkshire puddings and add the tray to the oven for 10 minutes for it to heat up.
– To make the super easy Yorkshire pudding batter, crack 2 eggs into a mug or small bowl.
– Remove them and place in another larger bowl. Pour the milk in the first mug or small bowl to the exact point the eggs came up to (you can tell by the mark they leave).
– Pour the milk into the smaller bowl with the eggs and then repeat the same process with flour, making sure it goes to the same height on the mug as the milk and eggs did. See, we told you it was easy, no measuring equipment required!
– Add salt and pepper to your Ultimate Yorkshire pudding batter. You can even add mustard powder (Olly loves doing this to add a kick to these mini toad in the holes).
– Whisk the batter until it’s smooth.
– After your 10 min timer goes off, remove the tray from the oven and then pour in your batter evenly across the Yorkshire pudding moulds. You can pop in fresh thyme or rosemary at this point in the batter.
– Carefully drop a Pig in Blanket or two into each Yorkshire pudding well, creating your mini toad in the holes.
– Lower the oven to about 180 and then pop your Yorkshire puddings back in the oven. Allow them to cook for 20-30 mins. DO NOT open the door, as this will stop the Yorkshire puddings with pigs in blankets in from rising. Peek through the door if you can and remove them from the oven when they’re browned and fully risen!
