Not to be confused with a chicken & biscuits.

Biscuits are a savory or sweet sort of cracker:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biscui...ons_in_meaning

British biscuits are kind of like cookies, but crisp

Not to be confused with crisps, which are chips

Not to be confused with chips, which are fries....
But would you put pudding on crackers?

Spoiler:
Pudding on the Ritz

Reminded me of this:

People say "Yo, Humpty, you're really funny lookin'"
That's all right 'cause I get things cookin'
Ya stare, ya glare, ya constantly try to compare me
But ya can't get near me
I give 'em more, see, and on the floor, be
All the girls they adore me
Oh yes, ladies, I'm really bein' sincere
'Cause in a 69 my humpty nose will tickle ya rear
My nose is big, uh-uh I'm not ashamed
Big like a pickle, I'm still gettin' paid
I get laid by the ladies, ya know I'm in charge
Both how I'm livin' and my nose is large
I get stoopid, I shoot an arrow like Cupid
I use a word that don't mean nothin', like looptid
I sang on Doowhutchalike, and if ya missed it
I'm the one who said just grab 'em in the biscuits
Also told ya that I like to bite
Well, yeah, I guess it's obvious, I also like to write
All ya had to do was give Humpty a chance
And now I'm gonna do my dance

I've had roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, which was pretty awesome.

One of my favorite Prime Rib joints includes Yorkshire Pudding with the Prime Rib.
They don't even ask if you want it. You get it.
This is also the kind of place that simply asks which size of Prime Rib do you want. Then they bring the cart with the meat, and ask you how you want that cooked.
(Yes, they will serve other dishes, but I'm not driving through traffic to this restaurant and not get the Prime Rib. That is something that people do who then don't get invited to subsequent visits.)

Slippery slope. Next thing you will have people throwing steak and ice cream into a blender for a "fancy" meal.
