One day while browsing my favorite kitchen store back home I came across a Popover Pan.
I was intrigued, it looked like a deep large muffin tin and I loved me some muffins! So I bought it as a impulse buy and immediately began experimenting at home with Popover recipes. My first was with cream cheese (view the video below) and after tasting those gooey, airy treats I was hooked!
Wikipediea says: A popover is a light, hollow roll made from an egg batter similar to that of Yorkshire puddings, typically baked in muffin tins.
I decided to make these Popovers to go with our salad and soup for dinner the other night. I used the cheese that I had on hand and added chives for a nice oniony sharpness. Use this recipe as a base and experiment with your add ons. No matter what you use (or even plain!) these Popovers are delicious!
