What is a Yorkshire Burrito? This British street food (and tiktok) sensation takes the humble Yorkshire pudding and turns it into a Mexican inspired, British burrito. It is a large Yorkshire pudding, wrapped around a filling of meat and vegetables, sometimes from made with leftovers from a roast dinner/Sunday roast.

Who would have thought a nice, fluffy Yorkshire pudding (more on this below) could be the vessel for a full meal? I have seen roasted meats and vegetables served inside a giant Yorkshire pudding, but this is to a new level. It’s not completely wrapped because the Yorkshire pudding is thicker than a tortilla, but that is what they called it.

This street food has now evolved into Yorkshire burrito restaurants all around London with their first being in Camden Market.

A few years ago, I made something along the same lines as this, but it is an appetizer of Mini Yorkshire Puddings with roast beef and horseradish (pictured below).

What is a Yorkshire Pudding?

It is a savory side dish that is very similar to a popover in ingredients and size (however, this giant version is made especially for this recipe) that originates from Yorkshire in the north of England. You can read more about it in my Yorkshire pudding recipe post.

How big is a Yorkshire Burrito?

This particular one is 8-inches (23 cm) in diameter. It is not small (but then neither is a Mexican burrito). 

What is in a Yorkshire Burrito?

The filling can be anything from leftovers of a chicken dinner or Classic Roast Beef Dinner, British roasted potatoes, mashed potato, vegetables and gravy, to cauliflower cheese (a classic British dish). You can also add sage and onion stuffing to make it festive.

A New Way to Use Leftovers

For years, Bubble and Squeak reigned supreme in the British world of leftover transformations. But step aside, mashed potato friend, because there’s a new king in town still making it’s rounds! The Yorkshire burrito, with its convenient handheld design and delicious versatility, is making its rounds and quickly becoming a street food favorite. 

The amount of filling is up to you. You can fill the wrap with as much meat and vegetables as you like. 

Yorkshire Burrito History: A Recent Innovation

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • For the Yorkshire pudding:
  • ½ cup (74 grams) plain/all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ½ cup (118 ml) whole milk, slightly warmed
  • Vegetable oil
  • For the filling:
  • Roast beef, shredded
  • Beef gravy, warmed
  • Roast potatoes
  • Cooked vegetables of your choice

Instructions

For the Yorkshire pudding:

  1. To a large bowl add the flour and salt. Whisk and slowly drizzle in the milk until there are no lumps. Whisk in the egg. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C. Add a thin layer of oil to an 8-inch (23 cm) cake tin or high-sided ovenproof pan so it coats the bottom and place in the oven. Heat for 10 minutes until the oil just starts to smoke.
  3. Slide the oven rack out of the oven and carefully pour just enough batter into the center of the pan to coat the bottom (any more and it will rise up too high), you can swirl the pan to help it quickly spread. Slide the pan back into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until browned and puffed. Do not open the oven door before it is finished baking or it will deflate. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  4. If your beef is cold, simply add some hot gravy to a bowl and shred or chop the beef into the gravy to warm through.
  5. Lay the cooled Yorkshire pudding out. Spread an even layer of beef, potatoes (flatten them slightly) and add your favorite vegetable (cooked carrots or peas I what I used). Drizzle a little gravy.
  6. Roll up and wrap in parchment paper. Serve with more gravy.
