My niece kept telling me about popovers which I had never heard of,so I asked her for her recipe and last night I made some more because we have had them a couple of times already I think they are great served warm right out of the oven with jelly,jam,honey and I used apple butter on mine. Here is what you will need 4 eggs, 2 cups of milk, 2 cups of AP flour and 1 teas. kosher salt. Preheat oven to 450*  beat eggs well,stir in milk,add flour and salt stir just until mixed, Pour into large greased muffin tins 2/3 full ,I don't have large muffin tins so I ended up with a dozen and a half instead of a dozen Bake at 450* for 30mins.do not open door.I put a small slit in the side of the popovers after baking to allow the steam to escape and removed to a cooling rack right away.They are almost like a cream puff kind of hollow in the middle with the just amount of room to put your favorite jam or jelly in.They can be served with meat and gravy also.

Hi Susan,it is related to Yorkshire pudding which I didn't know either,but it seems if you use beef dripping in it it becomes Yorkshire pudding,my niece sent me more info on it last night and we were talking about it.I don't know what its origin is but I will check it out because I like to know these things myself.Thanks for asking.I did check out the history,it states the popover is American,but Yorkshire pudding is English.Thanks again Susan for asking.Again we learn!

Hi Debra,these are really new to me.How do you get the egg,bacon and sausage in the middle? Before or after baking? My son just had 6 of them with apple butter but we put that in after baking.Thanks

You fill them after backing them.

They are yummy filled with chicken a la king or the filling for chicken or beef pot pies too.

Yes, like Wa-Ka said you fill after baking them. I've done chicken salad,too. You can also add a little sugar and cinnamon before baking if you want a sweet version to eat with butter.

Hi Debra, Thanks, I just can't believe I've never made these before.A few years ago when I could still get out by myself,I used to go to GoodWill they had dollar days there every wednesday at our store here.I saw stacks of these what looked like 6 flower pots held together with a metel frame,Well they were popover tins and they were brand new and a dollar a piece.Boy oh boy,You live and learn.I wish I would have bought them now,what a nice gift that would have made with a recipe attached.I had no idea what they were.Thanks again Debra.

Are popovers like the cream puff shell?  Are they that easy to make? I've served chicken salad in cream puff shells (ice cream too).  Made lots of cream puff shells in my life but I've never baked or tasted one in my life.

Popovers are like a cream puff shell in that they bake up sort of hollow.  The batter for a popover is thin like a pancake batter where the batter for cream puffs looks more like a dough.
Both are eggy and good.

There is a department store (commonly called "Needless Markups" as a joke, store is Nieman Marcus) where I met some friends for lunch one day.  I arrived early and as I was walking through the store I looked at some of the price tags and thought if the restaurant is anything like the store I will have a glass of water and a cup of soup as that would be all I could afford.  When we sat down rather than a basket of bread brought to the table they brought a basket of Popovers.  Well, I was a very happy camper my soup and popovers for lunch.

Hi Nancy ,They are very similar.They are flour,egg,milk ad salt.Same ingredients as crepes and cream puff shells.Just made in a muffin tin or as I found out popover tins.Steam builds in side and they puff up real high and they kind of tilt.They are good and easy to make.This is what amazes me the most about baking and cooking all the same ingredients but all different products.

Thanks for sharing the recipe Gale.  I love cream puffs so will have to try this maybe over the weekend.  Sounds better than toast with jelly lol.

I made many popovers and cream puffs  for the restaurants when I had my bakery.  I would always make a few extra for the family.  My son still wants me to make the mini cream puffs that one restaurant would always order for super bowl Sunday.  I think they would order something like 125 dozen.  My son would have a hissy fit because each one would be weighed so they had the right amount of filling.  Boy those were the day when the place smelled so sweet!
