Want to branch out and try something new for the holidays? Why not try a satisfying side dish that’s straight out of A Christmas Carol!

We’re talking about Yorkshire pudding, and don’t let the name full you— this puffed baked good isn’t a dessert. Instead, it’s the perfect vehicle for everything from gravy to smoked salmon, and for impressing everybody.
And who better to show us how than Jamie Oliver? Watch him demonstrate how it’s done in the video down below!
