A popover is a light and hollow roll made from an egg batter, it is similar to Yorkshire pudding, and often baked in either a muffin tin or a popover pan. Either will work just fine, I have made these all of my life, and only recently did I opt for a popover pan. So I assure you, they really can’t necessary. Growing up my Mom always served her popover recipe as a savory treat (with butter), but I have read online you can serve these will jelly.

I think a good popover recipe means you can have a hot bread with a meal, with a small effort. I think these are easier to make than biscuits. What I really enjoy about popovers is that they take so few ingredients, you really can make these out of a decently stocked pantry. Biscuits are a dense bread you need to roll out, popovers you simply mix and pour into a muffin tin and bake. So I really think they are much easier to make.

If you want to get fancy with this popover recipe you could sprinkle in a Parmesan cheese, or some herbs. Some people even line their muffin tins with some drippings from a roast for additional flavor. Flavoring your popovers is optional, and you can do if you like. I personally just like the buttery popovers straight from the oven.

    Stephanie, I’m so glad you posted this recipe on your site. I had lost my recipe and haven’t made them in years.

    I will have to try this recipe. My popovers are sublime, but they are for breakfast and take 40 or more minutes to bake.

    Cooking your Standing roast tonight…likely try these too! . I think your recipe typed above is missing EGGS from the ingredients list. I’m guessing, since this seems to be a 1/2 batch compared the video, that there are to be TWO eggs on the ingredients list. (??)

    I’ve been perusing your recipes searching for the Publix 5 Grain Italian Bread recipe……or as close as I can get to it. Can’t find it anywhere. Any suggestions?

    Thanks so much!
