David Chang's Ultra-Fancy Topping For Yorkshire Pudding

Made by pouring batter into a muffin tin that contains either hot beef fat or some type of oil, as Yorkshire pudding bakes in the oven, it takes on the appearance of a soufflé that is light, airy, and crispy on the outside. But while the dish, which tastes like a cross between a popover and a pancake, may traditionally be served alongside beautiful roast beef, there's no hard and fast rule that says you have to make the pairing. David Chang proves this point with the ultra-fancy topping he piles on this British favorite: caviar.

Besides being delicious, Yorkshire pudding's superpower is that these savory creations are wonderfully versatile and can be dressed up or down. Chang revealed on TikTok that he makes use of the sunken, hollowed center by topping his Yorkies with a couple of large dollops of caviar for an ultra-fancy and sophisticated snack.

Get creative

Because Yorkshire pudding has the same light-as-a-feather texture that a blini offers, they complement caviar's salty nature, making for a delightful and satisfying bite. In fact, if you want to elevate Chang's caviar and Yorkshire snack even further, you could first top the pudding with a little sour cream or tangy crème fraîche before heaping on the caviar to add a creamy element that pairs so well with both foods.

But Chang's upgrade to Yorkshire pudding isn't the only way to be creative with this culinary marvel. If you're a fan of barbecue, you may want to try some pulled pork with it  or add the sweetness of caramelized onions combined with a little goat cheese. This pairing makes for a yummy spread that will impress your taste buds, especially if you warm it up. And of course, if you get hit with a need for something sweet, top your Yorkshire pudding with a little vanilla ice cream and drizzle it with chocolate sauce, strawberry jam, or golden syrup.
