It’s a definite yes from me. I love em.
The absence of Yorkshire Pudding in a roast dinner is enough to align jedi and sith alike!!!
Star Wars and Y/P for ever, with a pint of what ever you fancy or have to hand!!!!
Why not if you want it. Over indulgence is what the Christmas dinner is all about! We might have them, depends if the wife can be bothered. Definitely pigs in blankets and stuffing balls though.
Now then another one: Roast spuds and mashed potato?
Why not both?
I'm actually partial to Roast Parsnips and Carrots so it's more like Roast Mixed Veg and Mashed Potatoes in my dinner.
I HAVE to go to the mother in laws...so I don't know...I'd sooner stay at home..
Roast spuds, baked parsnips, sprouts cooked with chorizo and leeks.
I am in the same boat as the Baron and my lad wouldn't eat them so little point in SWMBO bothering-

"I do not have yorkshire pudding nowadays at Crimbo as SWMBO makes so many veggies and trimmings its too much"
We used to have roast and mash but only have roast spuds now for the same reason.
Same here Chippy just have rosties now the Christmas dinner has about 4 veggies plus chestnut stuffing and pigs in blankets as a minimum plus anything else SWMBO can conjure up from watching hundreds of cooking programmes. Nice but OTT
Roast AND mash is a North/North Western thing isn't it?
Growing up in the South West we only had Roast potatoes.
Only roast potatoes! You were lucky lad, we had roast pebbles from the canal when we could afford 'em.
Personally I'd rather have a steaming hot curry with all trimmings for Christmas day (and every other day for that matter). But I live with others who prefer a traditional Christmas Day lunch. And a Yorkshire pudding, whilst a perfectly fine thing, has no place in such a meal. It's basically just padding that takes up valuable digestive space that could be better utilised for stuffings, bread sauce, pigs in blankets and the other things that make Christmaaaaaaaaaas dinner bearable
Pebbles from a canal what luxury, we had to dig our pebbles up carry them 5 miles to the hole in the ground we called home where mother would wash them in a bucket of dirty water before serving them cold as we couldn't afford a fire, happy days.
Luxury our parents used to make us get up half an hour before we went to bed then lick road clean wi tongue eat handful of gravel and when we got home they would thrash us to death with a broken bottle then dance on our graves singing hallelujah, you tell the young uns today and they won't believe ya
Most definitely, Yorkshire Pudding is the second course after the starter before the main event.
I can't imagine Yorkshire pudding pairing up with yabbies, Morton Bay bugs, prawns and oysters.
Being a sound Lincolnshire lad, I refuse to have anything Yorkshire on my plate*. So it's a firm no from me.
* amazingly, in the fractious times we live in, some people actually think I'm being serious when I say this (which I do quite a lot). Just in case there are such humourless souls about today - that is a joke. I just don't like Yorkshire pudding.
If I don't get them with my Turkey me and the missus will be divorcing as soon as possible.
Gotta have roast and mash together... probably get new pots as well.
