We absolutely LOVE a roast dinner in our home. I’ll often pop a slow cooker roast beef on, or a Ninja Foodi roast beef, and then I’ll use my air fryer to cook up a few goodies to serve with it near the end. While I do make my own yorkshire puddings frequently I do have days when making air fryer frozen yorkshire puddings, just helps to make life run a little smoother.

In this post I’m going to talk you through how to cook frozen yorkshire puddings in your air fryer. I’ve tested this method with both my homemade yorkshire puddings and Aunt Bessies yorkshire puddings.

If you’re using the frozen yorkshire puddings that are already cooked, such as the ones pictured here, then this method will be accurate. If you’re using the Aunt Bessies bake at home yorkshires then you’ll probably want to pop these in the oven – as the mix may splash all over your air fryer while they’re starting to cook.

Also, this method will work great for other brands of frozen yorkshires, including supermarket own ones. Any yorkshire pudding that is already cooked, and then frozen, should be perfect for this cooking time and you can save yourself some time and effort when serving up your dinner.

Ingredients for cooking frozen yorkshires in the air fryer:

A bag of frozen yorkshire puddings. I used these ones from Aunt Bessies which are known as ‘golden yorkshire puddings’. Presumably because they’re already cooked and look lush!

Method for heating up frozen yorkshires in the air fryer:

Grab your yorkshire puddings from the freezer.

Add to the air fryer basket, no need to pre-heat the air fryer this time.

Fill up the air fryer basket with a single layer of the frozen yorkshires.

Air fry at 180C (355F) for 3 minutes. If you like them extra crispy you’ll want to go for 4-5 minutes.

Check they are piping hot before serving.

Are frozen Yorkshire puddings already cooked?

Yes! If they look golden brown then they will be already cooked. There are also some yorkshire puddings in the frozen section that are just little foil tins filled with water. These will need a different cooking method.

Can you cook homemade Yorkshires from frozen?

Yes. I love to cook mine, usually in the oven, and then I’ll freeze. They DO sink a little when freezing, but they’re still absolutely delicious and my daughter loves to have these for a midweek roast.

You’ll need eggs, flour and milk to make your own yorkshire pudding batter – and a little more time of course!

Can you cook Aunt Bessie’s frozen Yorkshire puddings in an air fryer?

That is the type of yorkshires I used in this post, so yes. They are the most straight forward and time saving way to serve yorkshires with your dinner.

What to serve with yorkshire puddings:

We love to enjoy these as part of a roast dinner with lashings of onion gravy, but you can also enjoy with air fryer sausage, air fryer mashed potatoes plus air fryer onions, slow cooker beef casserole, slow cooker sausage casserole, slow cooker chicken casserole or even just with tomato ketchup as a tasty snack.

Can you reheat yorkshire puddings in an air fryer? 

Yes. That is essential what this recipe is showing you how to cook. These frozen yorkshire puddings have already been cooked by the manufacturer and you’re just re-heating them.

Do not re-heat a second time.

Do you need to defrost frozen yorkshire puddings before air frying?

No! Just cook from frozen and you’ll save time and effort. If you have fresh yorkshire puddings, or have defrosted frozen yorkshire puddings, then reduce the cooking time by one minutes and check they are piping hot before serving.

Something to note about air fryer recipes is that all air fryers have different sizes, depths and as such the cooking times can vary. All air fryer recipes on this website are intended as a guide, and not a guarantee that the timings will be perfect. Enjoy!
