Let’s get one thing straight – a roast dinner is incomplete without some delicious homemade Yorkshires! Few things compare to the taste and texture of airy Yorkshires. But what happens if you’ve got some Yorkshires leftover? Here’s how to reheat Yorkshire puddings
To reheat Yorkshire puddings, you can either place them into a hot oven on a lined baking tray for around 3 minutes. Or, you can reheat them in an air fryer for 3 minutes.
How to Reheat Yorkshire Puddings
It’s true that Yorkshire puddings are best enjoyed when they’re fresh and hot out of the oven the first time around. But if you’ve made more than you can handle in one sitting, then you can safely reheat them in the oven or in the air fryer.
You just need to be careful not to overheat your oven or air fryer as Yorkshires can easily burn, particularly if they’ve been cooked once before.
So, here are the steps you need to follow to successfully reheat Yorkshire puddings in the oven and air fryer:
How to Reheat Yorkshire Puddings in the Oven
Let’s start with an explanation of the best way to reheat Yorkshire puddings – the oven. It’s also the easiest method, as we explain in the steps below:
- Preheat Oven
Switch on your oven and preheat it to 425F or 220C.
- Prepare Yorkshires
Line a baking tray with tin foil and place your Yorkshire puddings on top. If you like them extra crispy, you can spray them lightly with some low-fat cooking oil, but this isn’t necessary.
Cover your Yorkshire puddings with a sheet of tin foil and place them in the centre of the oven.
Leave your Yorkshire puddings for no more than three minutes without checking them. If you want to crispen them up slightly, you can remove the tin foil from the top of the puddings before returning the tray to the oven for around a minute. Be careful not to leave them any longer than this or they will burn.
- Serve and Enjoy
Plate up your Yorkshire puddings, add copious amounts of gravy, and enjoy them as they’re meant to be devoured!
How to Reheat Yorkshire Puddings in the Air Fryer
The other option available to you is to reheat your Yorkshire puddings in the air fryer. Here’s what you need to do:
- Switch on the Air Fryer
Turn on your air fryer and preheat it to 350F or 175C.
- Place Yorkshires in the Basket
Drop your Yorkshire puddings in the basket of the air fryer, ensuring they’re evenly spaced out.
Place the basket inside the air fryer and reheat your Yorkshire puddings for 3-5 minutes.
- Serve and Enjoy
As soon as the time’s up, remove your Yorkshires from the air fryer before they burn and add them to your leftover roast dinner!
If you want to reheat Yorkshire puddings from frozen, place them in an oven at 220C for between 6 and 8 minutes. You can reheat them from frozen without needing to defrost them.
How to Reheat Yorkshire Puddings Successfully
If you want things to go your way when reheating Yorkshires then make sure you give our top 4 tips a read first:
- Avoid the Microwave – While you can technically reheat almost any type of food in the microwave, we definitely wouldn’t recommend reheating Yorkshires this way. This is because they will reheat unevenly and will almost certainly go soggy, which is not the texture that you will be hoping for from your reheated Yorkshires!
- Don’t Overdo Them – Yorkshire puddings burn easily, particularly if they’ve already been cooked. When it’s time to reheat your Yorkshires, you shouldn’t need to bake or air fry them for longer than 3-5 minutes. If you reheat them for any longer than this, they will burn and be inedible.
- Only Reheat Once – You will find that reheating Yorkshire puddings more than once will cause them to dry out and will render them far from delicious! Cooked Yorkshires should only ever be reheated once, so if you’re concerned about wastage, make sure you split them into smaller portion sizes when you preserve them in the fridge or the freezer, so you can easily remove the portion that you need at any given time.
- Cook Them From Frozen – If you made your Yorkshires and then stored them in the freezer then the good news is that you can cook them straight from frozen. You do not need to thaw them out beforehand.
Is It Safe to Reheat Yorkshire Puddings?
Yes, reheating Yorkshire puddings is perfectly safe and very little can go wrong! The biggest issue you will face is that your puddings might burn, particularly if you dial up the heat in the oven or air fryer too high.
But if you follow the guidelines that we’ve introduced in the detailed steps above, you shouldn’t encounter any issues when you come to reheat your delicious Yorkshires.

No! We would recommend only reheating Yorkshires once, otherwise, you risk them becoming soggy and mushy – not what you want!
Reheating store-bought Yorkshire puddings is not the best idea as they can quickly become mushy if overcooked. Instead, try to only cook the number you want to eat at a given time.
Although it is possible to reheat Yorkshires under the grill, you will find that they burn quickly before they are hot through. Instead, stick to using the oven.
