Yorkshire Pudding Wrap
Girl from Yorkshire coming at you with a delicious Yorkshire pudding wrap. I thought it better mention that first, as I have had Yorkshire puddings from my competitors described as everything from pastry to dessert. Of course, being a Yorkshire lass its funny, but I thought you might want something for authentic!
I live in the popular market town of Beverley in East Yorkshire, with my paternal family being from Hull and my maternal family having ties going back 100’s and 100’s of years in Bridlington. I love Beverley because its in between the two and the people are so lovely and friendly.
Plus, I have a lovely walk into town especially when the sun is shining.
Though prior to this we spent 13 years living abroad and many British trends passed us by, and we missed out.
One of those trends was the Yorkshire pudding wrap. We had heard of the Yorkshire wrap, but never got the chance to try one.
At the Christmas market in Beverley there was a Yorkshire wrap van and I was super excited to try it out.
Above was my wrap and I had excitedly watched as the lady made my wrap and then pressed it down in the machine.
I then tried it and it was not very good. I had about 3-4 bites to get a decent taste of the different flavours of the wrap and binned it.
Plus, it was rather expensive too for what you got.
It had frozen everything in it, the mash was smash, and I couldn’t believe how bad the frozen veggies tasted. I am a HUGE fan of instant pot frozen vegetables and often cook air fryer frozen broccoli, but this was flavourless, and you could just tell it was frozen.
After getting my head around the concept of the Yorkshire pudding wrap recipe, I decided there and then 2 weeks before Christmas that I would make our family an air fryer Yorkshire pudding wrap from our Christmas leftovers.
And today, I am sharing with you our own Christmas dinner Yorkshire pudding wrap for you to recreate at home with ANY roast dinner leftovers.

Can I Put Yorkshire Puddings In The Air Fryer?
Yes, you can, and I recommend cooking Yorkshire puddings in the air fryer, especially frozen Yorkshires.
The frozen Yorkshire pudding (especially Aunt Bessie’s) crisp up perfectly in the air fryer and taste much better than oven baked.
Even better, you can use the air fryer to cook frozen giant Yorkshire puddings and then use them as a base for your yorkie wrap.
What Is A Yorkshire Wrap?
A Yorkshire wrap is a wrap that is made from Yorkshire puddings. It is then folded up like a burrito and loaded with leftover roast dinner favourites.
Most people use frozen giant Yorkshire puddings for the wrap and then simply load it up with leftovers and then cook.
It is the ultimate use of your leftover roast dinner and can have a mix of leftovers.
Popular Yorkshire wrap ingredients include roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, veggies, pigs in blankets, stuffing, and cauliflower cheese.
Though of course variations are well known, and it could be leftovers from roast chicken, roast pork, roast gammon, roast lamb and many more.
Its also noted that leftovers may vary depending on what you have to add.
A Yorkshire wrap is also known as a yorkie wrap, stuffed Yorkshire pudding, roast dinner wrap and even a Yorkshire pudding burrito.
Christmas Dinner Yorkshire Pudding Wrap
For Christmas (our first back in England) we decided to get a turducken having never had one before.
Its where turkey breast, duck breast and chicken are wrapped together to make a 3 in 1 meat roast and we then air fried it.
We also went easy for Christmas with almost zero prep and bought in a lot of the sides from M&S. Our kids were 5 and 7 at Christmas and we wanted them to have our whole attention.
We were also lucky because the M&S sides were on yellow sticker, so we had all our Christmas sides (and there were loads) for less than £10.
We had a wonderful family meal the five of us, and still had plenty of leftovers for making our Christmas dinner wrap with.
We also bought some Aunt Bessie Giant Yorkshire Puddings for the wraps.
We had the following leftovers for our roast dinner wrap:
- Roast potatoes
- Stuffing balls
- Potato Gratin
- Cauliflower Cheese
- Carrot & Swede Mash
So plenty leftover as you can see. For your own Yorkshire pudding filling ideas, just go with what you have in and what needs using up. Though make sure you have some gravy left, otherwise it might be dry.

Yorkshire Pudding Wrap Recipe Ingredients
Leftovers – I recommend a mix of leftovers and always make sure you have something soft to add (mash) and some sauce (gravy) and also look at a mix of veggies and some leftover sliced meat.
Yorkies – Then for the best results focus on some giant Yorkshire puddings. They make amazing wraps compared to the small ones. Then you can flatten the Yorkshire pudding and make it into a wrap.
Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in this air fryer parsnips recipe it has just been our Cosori Air Fryer. We have this one and its wonderful for many types of air fryer recipes.

How To Make Yorkshire Pudding Wraps?
- Decisions. Decide with of your roast dinner leftovers you want to use in your wrap. Remember a wrap is quite small and because you are folding it over like a burrito you can’t over fill it.
- Cook. Load your frozen Yorkshire pudding into the air fryer basket and cook for 1 minute. This will defrost it and start the crisping process.
- Fill. Load the Yorkshire with your chosen fillings and then place the air fryer back on for 3 more minutes. It will then reheat the fillings and make the Yorkshire pudding crispy.
- Serve. Fold over the Yorkshire pudding into a wrap and tuck in.
And I am sure you can see now how easy it is to cook a Yorkshire pudding wrap in the air fryer and why you should be doing it too!
Can You Reheat A Yorkshire Pudding Wrap?
Unfortunately, unless you make a vegetarian Yorkshire pudding wrap, you can not reheat it. This is because a Yorkshire wrap contains meat and it can only be reheated once.
The wrap would have already been reheated in making the wrap so can’t be reheated a second time.
What To Do With Leftover Yorkshire Puddings?
Beyond making a Yorkshire pudding wrap there are other fun things that you can do with leftover Yorkshire puddings.
My first thought is our leftover Christmas soup in the soup maker. Its delicious and includes Yorkshire puddings, roast turkey, veggies, stuffing and so much more.
Yorkshire Wraps Tips & Tricks
- I experimented a lot with my Yorkshire pudding wrap and found that reheating the leftovers on the Yorkshire pudding was the quickest way.
- The air fryer method works best because it gives a fantastic crisp to the Yorkshire pudding and stops it from being soggy.
- Whatever you do, don’t overfill the Yorkshire pudding as it will all spill out and wont wrap for you.
- You can use your hands or a rolling pin to flatten your Yorkshire pudding before adding the leftovers to it.
Top Air Fryer Trick – Air fry the Yorkshire pudding for 1 minute on its own first. It will defrost the Yorkshire pudding for you fast.
