I used to think popovers were complicated and stuffy – and golly was I ever wrong. With just a few ingredients and minimal prep, you’ll have an impressive and lovely carby appetizer to pair with whatever you’d like.


These are delicious and eggy on their own – subtle, and just flavorful enough to work as a light breakfast when paired with some fruit and hot tea. But if you want to kick them up a notch, you can also add butter, jam, or even a sprinkling of garlic powder.

I’m always impressed when they come out of the oven. Steamy, fluffy, and wonderful.

Special tools needed: a popover pan. Non-stick is preferable.



Easy Breezy Popovers
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Plan for about two popovers per person. The recipe below is for 3 people, since your typical popover pan makes 6 popovers.
Recipe type: Popovers
Serves: 3-5
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Pam non-stick spray
  • Popover pan
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Spray popover pan generously with Pam non-stick spray.
  3. Beat the eggs thoroughly, then whisk in milk, salt, and flour until well combined.
  4. Distribute the batter evenly in the popover pan and bake for 25 minutes.
  5. You'll know they're done when they are super tall and lightly brown.
  6. Serve immediately & enjoy!
