Popovers from Heaven

On Wednesday, we're having our church small group over for dinner and the start of a new video series we'll be discussing. We're going to grill some burgers, and cook up some couscous. Then, I found this recipe for popovers on The Bitten Word and thought it would be a good addition to the meal. Instead of serving a brand new recipe to guests, I decided to try it out on my favorite guinea pigs.

OMG. Heaven's to Betsy. Sweet Jiminy Christmas. These suckers are good!!! I have an issue with kitchen equipment that is used for one purpose only. So, I do not own a popover pan. I have confirmed tonight that a muffin tin will work just fine.

I halved this recipe and still had enough batter for 16 popovers (using a 1/4-cup measure). The guys on Bitten Word showcased 2 different Martha Stewart popover recipes. I used some directions from each, and had great results.

Best Popovers Ever
Original Recipe From Martha Stewart's Twitter Feed

Place pan in oven. Heat to 425F .

Sift 2C flour + 2.5t salt

Heat 2C milk (for the sake of time, I microwaved the milk for 45 sec, stirred, then for 45 sec more)

Whisk 4 eggs slowly. Add in milk & flour

Spray hot pan with cooking spray. fill halfway up with batter. (a 1/4-cup measure seems to do the trick)

Bake 20min turn. Lower oven to 350F, and bake for 20 min.

Invert to remove.

So glad the popovers turned out well! It's good to know that a muffin tin will work just fine. Glad they worked so well for you!
