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.
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Pam non-stick spray
- Popover pan
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Spray popover pan generously with Pam non-stick spray.
- Beat the eggs thoroughly, then whisk in milk, salt, and flour until well combined.
- Distribute the batter evenly in the popover pan and bake for 25 minutes.
- You'll know they're done when they are super tall and lightly brown.
- Serve immediately & enjoy!
