An interesting twist on the English Yorkshire Pudding, this Southern adaptation combines wild rice to give each piece of the pudding that special crunch. Scrumptuous!

Yorkshire Pudding with Wild Rice
Recipe type: Breads and Rolls
Serves: 10
  • 2/3 Cup uncooked wild rice
  • 2 Cups water
  • 1 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • -OR-
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 stick butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  1. Place the rice, water, and half of the salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. Drain off any remaining water. Cool to room temperature. [The wild rice may be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated overnight if desired.]
  2. While the rice is cooking, beat the eggs until frothy in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer. Beat in the milk, flour, and the remaining half of the salt. The batter will be slightly lumpy. [The batter may be refrigerated overnight, if desired.]
  3. Preheat the oven to 450 F. Stir the rice into the batter. Place the butter in a 9 x 13-inch glass casserole (for each basic recipe for ten) and place the casserole in the oven until the butter is melted. Remove from the oven and stir in the bouillon cube and the Worcestershire sauce until dissolved. Return the casserole to the oven and leave until sizzling. Pour the wild-rice batter into the casserole and bake in the center of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed and golden.
  4. Cut into squares and serve immediately with your favorite roast.

We’ve made these as popovers too by using a muffin-tin instead of a casserole.
