Americans were horrified at this ‘British’ recipe for ‘Yorkshire Hotdogs’ and there was beef – lots of it
Yorkshire puddings are a fantastic invention, as are hotdogs. And now someone has posted a recipe for a ‘Yorkshire hotdog’ which brings them both together in delicious, sweet harmony (kind of).
Twitter account Messed Up Foods, who we gather are based in the USA, have posted the video to its 1.1 million followers with the rather cheeky caption ‘the British are at it again’.
A furiously entertaining debate ensued.
Here’s the recipe…

We’ll immediately go on record to say that looks absolutely delicious. It’s basically a portable toad-in-the-hole.
Others were less convinced, and its fair to say that it was the Americans who were most sceptical.
I’m so glad we had the Revolutionary War.

No salt and pepper I’m guessing (too spicy)

This actually looks good but even their “looks good” food looks like the blandest food on the planet.

However, some Americans were rather intrigued…
This might look rough, but I bet it’s tasty. I’ve never had it in this form, but I have had toad in the hole and it is very good. This is probably surprisingly good.

I’m on the fence, this feels like a crime but also like a crime potentially worth committing once just to try it

that doesn’t LOOK the most appealing, but I guarantee you that that tastes delicious and I would try it for sure

At 2 in the morning after a string of bad decisions, I wouldn’t rule this out.

And the Brits needed no persuading…
Would wolf that down
