  1. My mum use to make toad in the hole when I was a child, but we have never had anything like these. They look great – what a fab idea. Monkey is allergic to eggs but I think he would love these if I can find an egg free recipe. Thank you for joining us at #BloggerClubUK hope to see you again next week xx

  2. OoΓ²h how yummy! Isn’t it just wonderful how many different things you can do with a yorkshire pudding. I have only just recently discovered that you can put sweet fillings in it. Before we would just have them with a roast or stuffed with a bacon and veggie mixture in a cheese sauce. Mmmm yummy. Xx #KCACOLS

  6. Stuffed Yorkshire puddings? I have never heard of this but I definitely want to give it a go. I think the tuna melt ones would go down well in my house. Thanks for sharing xx #kcacols

  7. Awesome idea – I must try serving some to my kids – they do always love them with a roast. I know they are traditionally accompaniments for beef, but we tend to have them with any meat because everyone loves them so much! At uni I used to have a giant one with loads of veg and gravy when I was feeling a bit skint. What a treat! I want a yorkshre pudding now!
