Like their close cousin, Yorkshire pudding, puffy crisp popovers, with moist tender centers, are tasty complements to serve with roast beef, lamb, and pork.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Using 1/2 teaspoon shortening for each cup, grease the bottoms and sides of six 6-ounce custard cups or cups of a popover pan. (Or, lightly coat cups with cooking spray.) Place the custard cups on a 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside.

  • In a medium bowl use a wire whisk or rotary beater to beat eggs, milk, and oil until combined. Add flour and salt; beat until smooth.

  • Fill the prepared cups half full with batter. Bake in a 400 degree F oven about 40 minutes or until very firm.

  • Immediately after removing from oven, prick each popover to let steam escape (see photo, below). Turn off the oven. For crisper popovers, return popovers to oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until desired crispness is reached. Remove popovers from cups; serve immediately. Makes 6 popovers.

Cinnamon Popovers:

Prepare as above, except add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon with the flour. Continue as directed. If desired, serve with honey and butter or margarine.
