Poppin' Fresh

A few weeks ago on In Plain Sight, WitSec relocated Marky Mark’s brother Donnie. In his new life, Donnie had a diner. And a penchant for popovers. And, wouldn't you know, ever since that night I’ve been craving popovers.

Today I finally grabbed a few minutes to scratch the itch. So, so yummy. If you’ve never made popovers do yourself a favor and start pre-heating the oven. They couldn’t be easier to make (or, be forewarned, eat).
  1. Grease your muffin tin (with butter or vegetable oil) and put it in the oven while it heats up to 425.
  2. Combine 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon of melted butter, 1 cup of milk (skim is fine), 1 teaspoon of sugar, and ½ teaspoon of salt.
  3. Gradually add in a cup of flour and keep beating the mixture until it is smooth. Fill each muffin tin compartment halfway (or higher).
  4. Cook for fifteen minutes and then lower the oven to 350 and cook for fifteen more minutes.

And…. eat! At the Popover Café in New York, where the popovers are as big as cantaloupes, they serve these toasty tasty treats with strawberry butter. Oh, man. I may have to make more tomorrow.
