Used half the oil and added some low fat soft cheese to the batter. Also sprinkled some parmesan on for the last 5 minutes of cooking time. Kept it low fat and tasty.

Me and my partner thought this was yummy. I used chives, mint and parsley and I added so cheese to the yorkshire pudding mix. It was a simple quick and tasty supper. Only problem I found was that it was really hard to dish up... ended up looking a bit of a mess on the plate.

Mine also took a little longer than 20 mins. My sis and brother-in-law really rated it, I added a bit of grated parmesan at the end and thought that maybe the batter might benefit from a bit of grated cheese in it too.

Not bad but I don't think I will be making this again even though hubbie enjoyed it. Mine took quite a bit longer than 20 minutes in the oven.

Very nice. Made a quick dinner for a Tuesday evening, very quick and nice summer version of a favourite family meal.
