Beef and Yorkshire Pudding Canapes

Ingredients for the Yorkshire puddings

1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten

Ingredients for the horseradish cream

1/2 cup non fat greek yoghurt or non fat sour cream
2 tbsp. prepared horseradish (we love extra hot to give a burst of flavour)
salt and pepper

Ingredients for the mustard cream

1/2 cup non fat greek yoghurt or nonfat sour cream
2 - 3 tbsp. Dijon mustard (we love grainy and spicy)
salt and pepper

For the filling

12 slices of thinly shaved roast beef
flat leaf parsley, to garnish
Makes at least 24


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Add a very thin layer of vegetable oil in each cup of a 24 mini muffin tins and heat in the oven.
  • To make the Yorkshire puddings, blend the four and salt, gradually whisk in the milk to ensure no lumps, then add the eggs.
  • When the tray is hot, spoon in the batter in each muffin tin and return to the oven. Watch carefully, and cook for about 8-10 minutes until the mixture has puffed up and has browned. Then let cool on a wire rack.
  • To the make horseradish cream, simply mix the ingredients together. To make the mustard cream do the same.
  • Tear each slice of roast beef in half. Loosely wrap into a rose shape and pile on each of the baby Yorkshire pudding. Add a dollop of horseradish cream to half of the canapés, mustard cream to the other. Decorate all with a sprig of flat leaf parsley, tray and serve at room temperature.
