A Warming Winter Recipe – Yorkshire Pud Pies
Okay, so it’s not technically winter yet, but the colder temperatures are making us wish we were curled up in front of a fire. Or, better yet, eating some hearty, warming puds 🤤❤️🔥
The incredible Amy Sheppard, @amysheppardfood on Instagram, has created a recipe for cheese, potato and onion pud pies (aka everything you need in winter comfort food). To find out how to make these for yourself, read her recipe down below 👇
Ingredients – Serves 4-6 people (or 1 pud fanatic):
- 8 The Real Yorkshire Pudding Co Yorkshire Puddings (frozen)
- 1.2kg maris piper potatoes (peeled and cut into medium pieces)
- 4 medium sized onions (finely sliced)
- Oil for frying
- 2 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves (optional)
- 60g fresh spinach roughly chopped
- 100ml milk
- Heaped dessert spoon of butter
- 100g cheddar cheese grated (plus a little extra to sprinkle over the top)
Peel and cut the potatoes 🥔 and place them in a saucepan filled with cold salted water. Bring the water to the boil. Simmer on a low heat for around 20 minutes, or until tender enough to mash.
Finely slice the onion 🧅 Heat a drizzle of oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Place the onions in the pan and fry on a low to medium heat for 10 minutes or until soft and translucent.
Heat the oven to 200C 🔥 Drain the potatoes and mash them with a fork or potato masher. Add the spinach, butter, mustard, milk, thyme leaves, grated cheese and fried onion to the potato.
Season with salt and a generous grind of pepper. Stir until all the ingredients are combined and the potato is smooth and creamy 🥣
Place the Yorkshire puddings on a large baking tray and fill them with the hot potato mixture. Sprinkle the top with a little grated cheese and a little more ground black pepper 🧂
Place in the oven for 5 minutes (You can finish them off under the grill for a couple of minutes if you want the cheese to go golden brown).
Tuck in to some cheesy, potatoey, puddy goodness 🤤
And there you have it – some delicious and warming pud pies to bring some comfort to colder nights 🥶 Top with gravy for some extra saucy goodness (if you like) and serve them however you fancy!
