Light as air Yorkshire puddings (popovers) look impressive, but are no more effort than whipping up a stack of pancakes for breakfast. This savoury version holds a melting tomato and mozzarella interior beneath a perfect baked egg. A bright avocado and tomato sauce topping makes it pop – no pun intended.

Directions for: Breakfast Yorkshire Pudding


Yorkshire Puddings

¼ cup refined avocado oil or grapeseed oil or lard (do not use extra-virgin olive oil or butter as they will burn)

4 large eggs

2 cups whole milk or 2% milk

2 cups all-purpose flour

½ tsp salt

⅛ tsp grated nutmeg


2 Roma tomatoes, deseeded and cut into 12 pieces

12 mini bocconcini mozzarella or cubed regular mozzarella

12 eggs, any size

1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced

1 green onion, diced

1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

2 tsp lemon juice

¼ tsp chili flakes

1. Preheat oven to 450ºF.

3. Divide oil amongst a 12-cup muffin tin or popover tin.

4. Place oiled muffin tin in oven until extremely hot and fat is smoking, about 5 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and ladle approximately ¼ cup of batter into preheated muffin tin.

1. Lower oven temperature to 375ºF.
