What did I do wrong?
I made roast with yorkshire pudding yesterday. I used the drained beef fat to make the pudding. As I always do, I added about a teaspoon of the fat into each of the little muffin compartments and heated it up in the oven. I filled the tins with the batter and put it back in the 400*F oven.
All of the fat just ran off the top as they rose and into the bottom of my oven, making a horrible mess. The pudding itself didn't run over. This is actually the first time it's done this but it's been a long time since I made this. Any ideas about what I may have done wrong? The puddings all came out fine and didn't stick. But it caused quite a smoky mess in my oven. Next time I'll use a sheet pan under it, but wonder what happened this time. Did I just use too much fat?
The pudding recipe was pretty standard: 1 c. milk, 1 c. flour, 2 eggs, salt, melted beef fat.
Life is too short to eat processed, artificially-colored, chemically-preserved, genetically-modified food. Or maybe that IS why life's too short.
