Have leftover Yorkshire Pudding? Make these Waffled Yorkshire Pudding Pizza Bites for your family as a snack the day after.
Were y’all ready for the holidays? I’m was not. We’ve put the tree, but didn’t decorate the outside at all. I’ve been busy, tired, lazy, all the above. I did get a small tree to just put up to have a tree. It will feed into my wanting to have a tree on every floor next year.
Next year the inside will be decorated, too. If I must add it to my schedule now, I will. Not having a tree up isn’t Christmas to me. The hubs found that out the hard way one year. I call that one the worst Christmas ever.
It has been a bit difficult to get into the Christmas spirit this year. I didn’t even participate in our holiday party at work. I just wasn’t feeling it. Of course, it doesn’t help when you want to bring something and they tell you what to bring. Seriously? Who requests empanadas to be brought as a pot luck appetizer? Why can’t I bring what I want? It just stumped me and I just couldn’t get organized.
I missed the other party that’s usually fun. But from what I hear that’s okay because it wasn’t as fun as it usually is. I took the opportunity to finally obligate some funds that I hadn’t because I must fight with at least 4 people to get into the document number log. Yes. FOUR people. Do you have any idea how frustrating that is?
I think it will all come together when I start cooking our Christmas dinner. I’ve already made a nice cheese ball that I will turn into a cheese pinecone. Homage to Mom! She used to make those. And they’re so delicious because, I mean, CHEESE!
I have other cheese and salami nibbles to have that day, too.
I plan on making a delicious pickle board. We had so much fun eating the pickles, olives, and what not for Thanksgiving, that I thought I’d continue the theme and make a proper pickle board for Christmas. You’ll just have to wait. Besides, I can use any leftovers to make new waffled bites.
Our sides are usually typical. We will have mashed potatoes and some roasted Brussels sprouts. Maybe I’ll toss in some bacon with those babies while they’re cooking. Or just sauté them with the bacon? Now there’s a thought. I need to get some bacon and shallots. Remind me on Saturday while we’re out shopping, will ya please?
Finally, there’s always a rib roast. And I always get the bone in so Missy can have some bones. That’s her Christmas present. I’m not sure what I’ll crust it with this year. I’ll just have to do some Pinspiration research and see what strikes my fancy. I know I pinned something already, I think…
Of course, this year I plan on making these Yorkshire puddings again. They were so delicious, so simple, and so tasty!! And since I’m making a roast, I will have some pan drippings to be able to put in the popover pans to make them even more delicious.
You see, that’s where I was headed with all this banter. These Yorkshire puddings from Lucinda Scala Quinn and her Mad Hungry Family cookbook. It has, hands down, been my favorite cookbook this year. Not that I’ve bought or read many, but I have skimmed through several in the stores. I haven’t finished reading it cover to cover yet, but I plan on it.
When I made these, I had leftovers.
If you don’t have leftover Yorkshire puddings, which are delicious and super easy to make, then try this recipe with leftover crescent rolls or even dinner rolls. These waffled pizza bites are versatile and super easy to whip up for the hungry masses.
I had this post sitting in the queue to write and post. Sometimes you just make a dinner, photograph it, and then get busy with other events. Then, when things calm down and you are looking for things to post you remember recipes like this you have pending.
I’ve been so busy at work and so tired when I get home that I just haven’t taken pictures of the food we’ve made recently. Since I can’t photograph my lunch at my current work the new ideas are a little more difficult to get blog ready. That means leftovers sit in the fridge until I’m ready to photograph them. And with the darker nights, that means weekends are spent playing catch up.
And there’s nothing really to these waffled pudding pizza bites. I simply popped open the popovers, stuffed them with cheese and pepperoni, put them in the waffle iron, and voila! We had some delicious, egg-y, cheesy, pepperoni bites of pudding goodness. If you have leftover Yorkshire puddings – and that’s a HUGE if – you really should make these. They’re super quick and tasty.
Have you waffled any leftovers lately? How did they turn out?
- 1 batch of Yorkshire puddings
- 6 ounces sliced, turkey pepperoni
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- Preheat the waffle iron.
- If possible, carefully open the puddings from the top. If not, then simply slit one side to open them.
- Layer the inside of the pudding with cheese, pepperoni, and more cheese. Fold them closed and press them flat on your work surface.
- Brush the waffle iron light with the melted butter. Place 2 to 4 puddings in your waffle iron and cook until the steam slows and the puddings are golden brown.
- Keep warm in a 200 F oven until ready to serve with your favorite marinara or pizza dipping sauce.
