“ Manufacturer: Aunt Bessie's / Food Type: Other „
We caught site of these in Asda lst week. Well I better say the wife did, as she was looking everywhere as usual. Trying to see if any good bargains out there. These were stacked in 1 of the end freezers and cost £1. Not sure if this was a special price, but I guess from the location that it probably was, or that they were just trying to catch people's eye.
These come in a plastic bag. It is blue like the other Aunt Bessie's items. The picture on the front looks alright. It makes a face with the food, so I guess showing this to kids may make them want to eat them.
As it mentions you get 18 in the pack. After opening the bag I see that they aren't that large, but I wasn't expecting that. If you look at the size of the bag then you will see it isn't huge. They are an ok size and probably aimed with kids in mind, as a couple of these with some other food would be ok. I could easily eat half the bag myself though, but that's not so bad I don't think.
These cook in about 5 minutes in the oven. The outside comes out crisp and the inside is slightly greasy and a little soggy. I always dump the Meat and gravy in here though, so I didn't really nice the greasy taste that much.
A nice little bit of food that i'm sure that kids would like as well as us grown ups.
I brought these Midweek Mini Yorkshire Puddings in Tesco after I read a review on here about them saying how good they are. I like cooking my 2 year old sister a proper hot meal with gravy when I've got her at dinner time so today after we made a snowman I did her sausage and mash and put her a couple of these in because she LOVES Yorkshire pudding.
They come in a bag of 18 and the Yorkshire puddings are very mini, I can't tell exactly because the shape of them is all wrong but I reckon 2 ½ - 3 of these would make up a full proper sized one from Aunt Bessies. They cook dead quick, today I put them in as I was starting the mash and by the time it was all on the plate they were cooked perfect.
The Yorkshires are wicked. I prefer them in a way to the proper sized ones because they fluff out a bit more, that's because of them being smaller in size I think as they have bulked out more. I love the way they soak up the gravy but don't get bogged down, I filled mine with gravy and they were yummy like that because they went nice and wet but the top stayed lovely and crisp.
My sisters Yorkshire pudding I left nearly dry because she likes to pick them up and I noticed she deffo had an easier time eating these than she does with the bigger Yorkshires. They made a lovely crunching noise every time she had a bite and I wished I'd left one of mine drier because they looked delish! lol
I'll deffo get these again, it's probably because they're so small and cute looking but I enjoyed eating these more than I would a normal sized Yorkshire... and I love Yorkshire pudding of any size! I think if you do regular cooked dinners for little kids then these would be ideal, I gave my sister 2 but next time will just give her 1 because it's still a nice treat and it's a good way of making sure your children don't eat too much fat.
As I had over stocked on the fresh chickens from Tesco's a few weeks back, My freezer was bursting as I had frozen them and now needed to make some room ready for Christmas bits and bobs. So I asked my Son and his Girlfriend over for Sunday lunch.That would at least get rid of two of them ( as I had purchased my turkey 9kg and needed to get that in!), so hunting around in Morrisons for some yorkshire pudding ( I would usually make my own, but was on a tight time allowance!)nope they only has the huge ones, so I had to pop into Tesco's on the way home (I know some people will be thinking "well we only have Yorkies with Roast Beef", but my lot love them with any roast dinner!).
Good old Tesco's have a great selection and then I spotted these ones by Aunt Bessie, these looked perfect as I hate it when you dish the dinner up, it looks all lovely then you plonk your yorkie on top and it then covers half of the dinner and you have to balance it on top while you get it to the table!.
Well these are called Midweek Mini's and I must say they are great!. In the usual blue plastic bag, this contains 18 mini yorkshire puddings that will cook in 4 minutes, as there was 9 of us this meant that we could have 2 each. I did wonder how mini they would be, but was pleasantly surprised as they were still a good 2 inches wide.
So just as I was getting ready to serve up the dinner, I popped these onto a baking tray and popped them into oven 200c/400f/Gas6 for the recommended 4 minutes. Well they cooked a treat, when I got them out of the oven they were a really lovely golden colour and looked sweet. I popped 2 onto each plate and it didn't spoil the look of the dinner. On cutting into one of these mini ones I found it to be really crispy and of course had the lovely taste that you would expect from an Aunt Bessie product. When you can purchase good food like this it does seem so much easier than making your own as theses tasted delicious!. You could also cook these under the grill, but with trying to serve up all the veg ect.... it was easier to pop into an oven as if you grill these you will have to keep turning them over so not to burn and I only have one pair of hands!.
Each mini yorkshire pudding contains;
These are also great to give to kids, as they are the perfect size for little ones, also if you are following a special diet then I wouldn't have thought that one of these would make a lot of difference as a treat!. This bag weighs 140g and is currently on offer in Tesco's for £1.00 instead of £1.49. I will getting some more of these once I get my freezer down a bit as these make a great standyby to have for a midweek lunch with sausages ect...
I will give these 5 stars!.
