Kid-Friendly Healthy Summer-Salad-Stuffed Yorkshire Puddings

  • For the Yorkshire Puddings
  • Baking spray
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • For the summer salad
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/4 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine or balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin generously with baking spray; set aside.

For the popovers: Whisk the milk, flour, eggs, vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl until combined. Drizzle in the melted butter while whisking until combined, then let the batter stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in the baking powder, then divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups (a scant 1/4 cup each). Bake until puffed and browned around the edges, 20 to 25 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.

For the salad: While the Yorkshire Puddings are baking, toss the tomatoes, mozzarella, cucumbers and basil in a medium bowl. Whisk the oil, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper in a measuring cup; add to the tomato mixture and toss to coat. Cover the bowl and refrigerate.

To assemble: When the Yorkshire Puddings are done, turn them out of the pan, using a small spatula if necessary. Place 2 Yorkshire Puddings on each of six serving plates and top each with 1/2 cup of the tomato mixture. Serve immediately.
