Why is Chicago mentioned in the same headline as pizza?

I'm a little surprised it took that long.  Yorkshire Pudding seems built for this kind of thing.

How's that different than what Chicago does?

I certainly hope it's slow-boiled in a vat of cabbage water!

Meh.  I spent a lot of time in Canada as a kid, and what you plebes call Yorkshire Pudding we called Popovers and they were a Sunday morning tradition along with pea meal bacon.

A Yorkshire pudding is similar to a popover, and the crust really not that different from what you'd get if you ordered a deep dish pizza at Uno's (sorry, but I'm in the northeast USA, that's my frame of reference for deep dish pizza).

I wonder if they have to blind bake it first (cook the dough without the filling), then add the pizza stuff. Hmmm. Now I'm going to have to go home and make little popover pizzas to test this out.

Fear the Clam: A Yorkshire pudding is similar to a popover,


It's the exact same thing.  Having made them, I cannot fathom how they form the shell.  I figure they use a small pizza pan preheated with the oil in it, then apply batter, blind bake, cool/set, then make pizza with baked product.

Thing about popovers is that they are generally full of air.  No substance.  Just yummy.

AltheaToldMe: Fear the Clam: A Yorkshire pudding is similar to a popover,

Similar, but not quite. A Yorkshire pudding is made by pouring the batter into a hot pan with drippings, whereas a popover is made in a cold pan with the fat already mixed into the batter. Come to think of it, the hot pan treatment would probably solve the blind bake.

This is the way I grew up making popovers too.  Bacon grease in muffin tins preheated to 400 til barely smoking then add batter.  Don't forget to poke a hole in the top to get the steam out and get the thing to set.

The Mrs and I tried with the cold pan and got horrible, chewy, trashable results.

That initial heat is the key.  It's also why my cornbread cooked in a screaming hot cast iron skillet works so well.  Preheat the biatch in oven till it's 450, add oil to pan and let come to temp (slight smoke) then pour in batter and bake.  Absolutely freaking delicious!

But how do they boil it to kill off any remaining trace of flavour?

/Kidding. Sounds tasty. I'll have to pop into Morrison's and try one.

In Chicago, tavern cut outsells both deep dish and stuffed.

Been seeing this pop around the last few days.  I'd eat the shiat out of it.  But then I grew up eating Yorkshire pudding, so maybe I'm biased.

That is my favorite.  I grew up eating that about once a week.  Always got a large 23.

You're speaking my language. 

First taste was Homewood but I delivered for the take-out place on Gov Hwy in Chicago Hts. Now I have to drive to Arlington Heights.

You do realize that Yorkshire Pudding is not like Jello Pudding.  it's basically just baked pastry dough.

//I didn't know this either until I googled it today
//not exactly a culinary expert
//especially when it comes to british "food"

Absolutely.  Here's a Yorkshire Pudding:

img.fark.netView Full Size


Here's the recipe:

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup pan drippings from roast prime rib of beef

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Sift together the flour and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, beat together the eggs and milk until light and foamy. Stir in the dry ingredients just until incorporated. Pour the drippings into a 9-inch pie pan, cast iron skillet, or square baking dish. Put the pan in oven and get the drippings smoking hot. Carefully take the pan out of the oven and pour in the batter. Put the pan back in oven and cook until puffed and dry, 15 to 20 minutes.

Seems like it would make a very interesting crust for a small pizza.  Adding the drippings from a roast prime rib is bound to make it different, and interesting in a good way.
