Popovers , my recipe from the 70's

There's something magical and delicious about a fresh, hot, buttered Popover served with your favorite Jam. I used to make them a lot in the 70's. I decided to start making them again.




Here's what you'll need:

Your Favorite Jam for Serving.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
1 - Popover Pan, greased well with Crisco Shortening.

This recipe makes 6 Popovers.

2 Large Eggs
1 C Whole Milk
1 TBS Butter, melted.
1 C Flour
1/2 tsp Salt



In a Medium Mixing Bowl:
Eggs
Milk
Butter
Whisk well.

Add:
Flour
Salt
Whisk just until combined.

Pour Batter evenly among the Popover Cups.

Bake for 15 minutes.
Reduce the Heat to 350.
Continue Baking for an additional 30 minutes.

Remove the Pan to a Rack,
Poke each Popover with a Paring Knife to release the Steam

Serve Hot with Butter and your favorite Jam.


Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!

Since we've been traveling to England, we were inspired to add Christmas Popovers to our Holiday Menu. This is my version of Yorkshire Pudding.
Mine are made with Butter and a bit of Vegetable Cooking Spray to keep them Vegetarian.
I don't use the typical drippings from Beef or Lard. You can also Grease the Pans with a Vegetable Shortening.
These are served Hot with Butter and your favorite Holiday Gravy. I make a Vegetarian Gravy.

If you don't own a traditional Popover Pan, you should buy one to make successful Popovers.

1 TBS Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Nutmeg

Brush the Cups of the Pan with remaining Butter.

Put the Pan in the Preheated Oven just to Heat it. About 2 or 3 minutes. Just long enough to heat the Butter and Cooking Spray.
