How to Make a Pesto Prosciutto Yorkshire Pud Bake

Pesto Prosciutto Yorkshire Pud Bake

This bad boy recipe surprised the hell out of me. I’ve never thought to put anything other than gravy on a Yorkshire pudding  and I’m not one who can stomach the thought of it as a dessert either! When I came across this idea I got pretty excited. Yorkshire pudding (my favourite component of a Sunday Dinner) with lashings of pesto, mozzarella and prosciutto? Ehem, YES PLEASE! A far cry from a classic like Toad in the Hole, Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Pesto Prosciutto Yorkshire Pud Bake.

Here is what you will need to serve 3-4

  • 100g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 45g (3 tbsp) Unsalted Butter, room temp
  • 4 Eggs, room temp
  • 180ml Milk, room temp
  • 130g Pesto
  • 60g Grated Mozzarella
  • 55g Prosciutto, sliced

 

Essential Equipment

  • 23cm (9″) Square Baking Tin/Dish

 

Pesto Prosciutto Yorkshire Pud Bake Recipe

Place your baking dish into the oven then preheat to 230°C.

In a large bowl, sift in the flour then add the salt & pepper. Give it a mix.

Melt 2 tbsp (30g) of the butter in a small ramekin in the microwave in 15 second intervals. Beat together the eggs, milk & the melted butter in a jug. Gradually pour the mixture into the flour and whisk constantly. Continue until all the liquid is in the bowl and the batter is nice and smooth.

As soon as it is melted, swill it around then quickly pour in the batter.

Scatter over 2 thirds of the pesto, grated mozzarella and prosciutto then put straight back into the hot oven. Bake for 20 minutes until risen, golden & beautiful.

    You have me intrigued!! My dad was a proper Yorkshire man who ate a plate full of yorkies smothered in gravy as a starter for roast dinner in Sunday as a child! I love pesto cheese and ham so I’m sure I’ll love this!
