Popovers

Popovers are a steam-leavened quick bread that puff up to become basically hollow inside.  I think they are novel and fun.  I lost the recipe from my college days and tried a few that bake at crazy high temperatures and burn (Grrrr!), so it was a relief to find this good basic recipe.  Serve popovers along side soups and stews or casseroles.  My kids like to fill their hollow insides with a bit of butter and jelly.

Popovers
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1/3 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. milk

Combine eggs, flour, salt and milk in a blender and blend until smooth.  Pour batter equally into 12 well-greased muffin cups.  Bake 45-50 min. or until popovers are well-browned and firm to the touch.  Serve right away.

Notes:  It is important to preheat the oven all the way to 375 before putting the popovers inside and leave the oven closed until late in their cooking time, as the steam generated from the preheated oven is what makes them puff.  These could be also be filled with chicken salad, yum! This recipe is adapted from one in Sunset Breads.
