Popovers are a classic Christmas tradition for me and my family. But, I make them year round seeing that they are so good! You only need four ingredients and 20 min and you have a light tasty breakfast treat which you can top with your favorite jam or fruit. My family loves to spread butter and strawberry jam over these hot little babies. I have yet to try lunch and dinner popovers, I have heard people pair with meats. When I find a good recipe for that I will post! Until then, here is the classic popover recipe. They are best made with a popover tin, which are basically muffin tins but taller and skinnier. You can find them at any cooking store or Target. Also, popovers are best eaten straight from the oven and piping hot. Enjoy!
1 cup whole milk
1 tb butter
1 cup sifted flour
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400. Butter pan generously to avoid sticking. Mix milk, butter, flour and salt until smooth, use a wire wisk or fork. DONT OVER DO IT!.
One at a time add 2 lightly beaten eggs- the batter should be no heavier than whipping cream. Some lumps are ok. Fill the pans 1/3 to 1/2 full.
Bake 15 minutes at 400 then lower to 300 and bake 30 min lover. NO PEEKING for 30 min. The tops should be golden brown or slightly darker.
Serve immediately in a basket lined with napkins. And serve with butter and jam.
