Granny knows best

You know why Yorkshire pudding always goes with Granny's roast and potato dinners? Because Yorkshire pudding is awesomely delicious and dead easy to make. I'd never made them before, as I was rather intimidated due to all the special popover tins you see in kitchenware places, and popover mix, and restaurants acting like it's a big giant deal when they bring them out.

Here is how you make them. Spoon a little of the drippings from the roasting pan into the cups of a muffin tin. Keep it hot in the oven. Make a batter out of a cup of flour with a little salt, into which you mix a cup of milk you've beaten with 2 eggs. Pour this about halfway up the muffin tins, and bake for 15 minutes. Done. Beef drippings in the making, and can be used to sop up whatever falls on the plate, my kind of breadstuff.
