We eat Yorkshire Puddings a few times a week but didn't start buying these Basics ones to save money, it was because they're a bit smaller than Aunt Bessies and them sort of brands so have got less calories and fat in them. You can see they're smaller but you get 15 for 59p so still a major bargain. They take about 3 mins to cook in the oven and when they're done they go a nice golden brown all the way over them, the bottom stays pale but that's just the same as all Yorkshire Puddings. They feel a bit harder in your fingers when they're cooked but that doesn't matter because once you've put the gravy over them they go nice and ... Read the complete review

One of my favourite dinners in the whole world is a roast dinner and although I love cooking one and eating it (of course!) there are times when I just don't want quite so much washing up and hassle so I have been known to cheat on occasion and just buy lots of packet things and cook them up for the family. There is a difference in the quality but at least we all still get a nice roast dinner on a Sunday. These basics Yorkshire puddings come provided in a plastic bag which is very basic to look at and adorned with the usual Sainsburys basics white & orange colouring. There is nothing special about the packaging but I wouldn't expect anything more for the ... Read the complete review

My reason for buying these Sainsbury's Basics Yorkshire Pudding was not down to the fact that they cost just 54p for 15 puddings, but because they are smaller than the usual Aunt Bessies brand I buy and therefore contain fewer calories. I miss having a Yorkshire Pudding with my Sunday lunch but cannot justify the dent in my daily Weight Watcher points allowance by having one, however these small and tasty puds can easily be slotted in by simply reducing the scoops of mash I have! These aren't really THAT much smaller, they're nowhere near the size of those Tidgy Puds that Aunt Bessies used to make and really just don't stand quite so tall on my plate. The ...

49p for 15 yorkshires? .....yes please and good quality fab tasting too even better. Priced around the same as other supermarket basic yorkshires yet others pack them in 12's and smaller at that too. Packed in the usual sainsburys basics packing. White with orange writing on, found in the freezer with the other yorkshire puddings. These yorkshires are soft yet crisp on the top as they should be. I believe if you gave me one of these and a leading brand yorkshire these would prob be the better one or at least as good as. Compared to other basic yorkshires they are miles better. Retaining their shape in freezer and oven they are not rubbery or chewy but simply delicious .. Read the complete review

Yes, I know I should really be making my own Yorkshire puds, but I'm a student, and therefore lazy. I also spend most of my money on alcohol, so have little left for luxuries such as food. But I've had Sunday Roast dinners every Sunday for the last 20 years, I'm not changing that just because I'm a student! I used to get the Aunt Bessie's ones, they were the default choice when my mum couldn't be bothered with making her own. But it's got to the stage where I really can't afford to have brand named stuff any more and therefore all my food is from the Sainsbury's basics range. Including the Yorkshire pudding, something that I cannot have a Sunday roast without. ... Read the complete review
