Yorkshire Pudding
Yorkshire pudding has been a Christmas Eve dinner tradition at our house since I was a little girl. This recipe has been passed down for generations. Usually a side dish accompaniment to Prime Rib, if you save beef drippings and freeze them, it can be made any time of year.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is traditionally baked in a 9-inch square pan.  Muffin tins or popover pans can be used, but baking time will vary.  If you are using popover/muffin pans, add at least 1 teaspoon of the drippings in each well.  Make sure that you add batter only until each cup is 1/3 full.

I have made this using rendered chicken fat and rendered turkey fat - and it turns out wonderfully.  If you have access to it, try it.
