Saturday Morning Treat

Every weekend, usually on Saturday, I get up and make popovers and eggs for breakfast. I don't think there is anything more rewarding to cook than the simple but delicious popover. I used to think they were so difficult - but what is easier than 2 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour and a little salt? The challenge is in the pan and just how much you wisk it together. The pan - best in a popover pan - especially if you store it in the oven and just leave it in there when you are warming it up to 450F - I never actually clean it, just leave it in my oven since it is the most frequently baked item in our house. The two other key things are not over-wisking - it should be a little lumpy - and be sure to spray the pan before you fill it 1/2 way in each cup. 18 minutes at 450F; 18 minutes at 350F and voila you have popovers. Totally worth waiting for - we just serve them up with Strawberry Jam... YUM!

Mmm... Popovers

Knitting and spinning content soon - I promise!

I LOVE to make popovers. I have a similar pan, no non-stick, and oodles more $$$$. They are great with sausages, or open them up onto a bed of lettuce and add a crab salad stuffing, or a few shrimp with cocktail sauce. Popovers, they're not just for breakfast anymore.
