There’s not much to tell about popovers; they are light, very easy to make and they can definitely be used instead bread, for either breakfast or lunch. They are usually made using a sort of muffin pans but they get a bit too fluffy to my taste, hence me using the small loaf pan which really worked, you only have to bake them a bit longer than normal.
Anyway, making this can’t get any easier. Some people use herbs but most recipes out there are not flavored at all… that’s why I added some bacon bits on mine :P. The four ingredients that make these popovers need to be thoroughly mixed using a blender or whatever else you want. At this point you can also add herbs, maybe cheese, or fry some bacon, chop it as small as you can and add a tablespoon of little bits to the batter. Next pour your mixture into a pan of your choice and fill each cup about ¾ of the way through.
Bake them in a preheated oven at 400° F / 205° C until they get pretty brown, then let them cool as much as you can and serve. I found out that I like them more cold then warm/hot.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 cups milk
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp bacon bits (optional)
- butter for greasing the popover pan
- Preheat oven to 400° F / 205° C.
- Butter the popover/muffin tray well.
- Add all ingredients (not the butter) to a blender and blend until everything is well incorporated. The batter will look similar to the crepe thing.
- Add some bacon bits if you desire, or any herbs of your choosing.
- Pour the batter in the muffin cups ¾ of the way through.
- Bake for about 45 minutes or until they get pretty brown - remember this worked for my pan size.
