Yorkshire puddings with Christmas dinner debate divides millions of Brits

Join the Secret Elves to discover the best shopping deals and things to do this Christmas

Food is undoubtedly one of the most important aspects of Christmas Day, and some Brits take it very, very seriously.

One particular question has had people bickering on social media – should you have Yorkshire puddings with your Christmas dinner?

Many Twitter users feel very passionate about the topic and couldn't help but air their opinions.

One person asked: "Where do you stand with Yorkshire puddings with Christmas dinner? Personally I think it’s ridiculous behaviour."

Another joked: "You can sum up the state of this country with many things. Brexit. The way we handle COVID. And clowns that reckon Yorkshire Puddings belong on a Christmas Dinner."

"Yorkshire puddings shouldn’t be on a Christmas dinner plate," a third person stated.

However, many people disagreed and didn't see the big deal with having Yorkshire puddings alongside the roast turkey, potatoes and Brussels sprouts.

"What’s the big deal about Yorkshire puddings on Christmas dinner," one asked.

Another tweeted: "Can’t have a roast of any sort without Yorkshire Puddings," while a third said: "Of course Yorkshire Puddings go on a Christmas dinner, grow up, I’ll have 3 please."

Another person replied to one of many polls, saying: "Veggies? – parsnips, sprouts, swede, carrots …. and the important bit YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS which go with everything."

And another Twitter user stated: "What is the best thing about your Christmas Dinner? Mine has to be the Yorkshire puddings filled with everything that fits!!!"

According to a YouGov survey from 2016 on what people want at the dinner table on Christmas Day, only 47% of people would opt for a Yorkshire pudding.

However, it seems they're not the only extras that will be on many dinner plates this year.

Mums across the country have been sharing the weird extras they serve with their dinners on December 25.

On Mumsnet, one woman asked: “Over the years, we've added the following that have now become standard: cauliflower cheese, steamed red cabbage and raisins, sweetcorn. What additions do you have?”

And the answers varied from personal preference to down right odd!

One woman said: “Cauliflower cheese here too plus potato croquettes.

“We always had potato croquettes when I was a child as I didn’t like roast potatoes.”

To which another agreed, and added: “My mum always made three types of potatoes on Christmas Day; roast, mashed and croquette.”

Sauces caused some division as one mum said: “Mint sauce – my ex and my son have it with every roast.”

While another added: “Egg sauce, in place of bread sauce.

“It's a moderately thick white sauce with mashed hard boiled egg in it."
