For the Yorkshire puddings:

125g plain flour
3 large free-range eggs
1 tbsp + 1 tsp sunflower oil
140ml whole milk, room temperature
¼ tsp salt

For the Fillings:

The Californian:

1 rasher bacon, grilled
¼ avocado, peeled and sliced
1 cherry tomato
1 medium free-range egg

The Brit:

1 sausage, cooked and sliced
2 mushrooms, sliced and sautéed in butter
1 tbsp baked beans
1 medium free-range egg

The Florentine:

30g cooked baby spinach
2 tbsp ricotta
1 tsp Parmesan, grated
1 medium free-range egg

The Flamenco:

20g Chorizo, cubed and cooked
1 tbsp crumbled feta
2 tbsp mixed peppers, diced
1 medium free-range egg

Special equipment: 4 Hole Yorkshire Pudding tin.

Pre-heat the oven to 220°C/430°F.

To make the Yorkshire pudding batter, place the eggs, milk and salt in a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Slowly add the flour and beat until you have a very smooth, lump-free batter. Allow to stand and rest for 30 minutes.

Place 1 tsp of sunflower oil into each hole of the tin and place the tin in the oven for 5 minutes. It needs to be really hot for the Yorkshires to rise.

Pour the batter into a jug. Carefully pour ¼ of the batter into each oiled hole, about ¾ of the way up. Quickly return the tin to the oven and bake, undisturbed for 15-20 minutes until the Yorkshires have puffed up and turned a pale golden brown.

Turn the oven temperature down to 180°C/350°F. Remove the Yorkshires from the oven and fill each one with each of the four fillings, finishing with the egg. Return the tin to the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on how you like your eggs cooked. The Yorkshire puddings should be crisp and golden.
