  • Combine your Yorkie batter in a big bowl. Blitz the mixture with a stick blender until smooth, then leave to rest for at least 1 hour
  • Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C. Divide the lard or goose/duck fat between 8 muffin holes in a muffin baking tray. Put the tray in the oven to heat up.
  • Add a Vienna Pork Mini Frankfurter 8cm to each hole. Return to the oven for a couple of minutes, to get the oil back up to temperature.
  • Pour the batter into the muffin tray and roast for a further 15 mins until the Yorkies rise and turn golden brown. Avoid opening the oven during cooking to help keep in the heat and aid the rising process.
  • Mash your potatoes – if using instant mash, simply heat as instructed then mix with butter chives and salt. If making from scratch, bring a pot of water to the boil and cook your potatoes until you can get they’re fork-through soft. Then drain and mash – mixing with butter, chives and salt.
  • Add mash potato to the Yorkies and serve with a drizzle of gravy on each. Enjoy!
