You may be wondering what a popover is, well I have a simple popover recipe you will be certain to love. This video is part of my Learn to Cook Series where I will walk you through my entire Home Economics cookbook from junior high school.
A popover is a light and hollow roll made from an egg batter, it is similar to Yorkshire pudding, and often baked in either a muffin tin or a popover pan. Either will work just fine, I have made these all of my life, and only recently did I opt for a popover pan. So I assure you, they really can't necessary. Growing up my Mom always served her popover recipe as a savory treat (with butter), but I have read online you can serve these will jelly.
I think a good popover recipe means you can have a hot bread with a meal, with a small effort. I think these are easier to make than biscuits. What I really enjoy about popovers is that they take so few ingredients, you really can make these out of a decently stocked pantry. Biscuits are a dense bread you need to roll out, popovers you simply mix and pour into a muffin tin and bake. So I really think they are much easier to make.
If you want to get fancy with this popover recipe you could sprinkle in a Parmesan cheese, or some herbs. Some people even line their muffin tins with some drippings from a roast for additional flavor. Flavoring your popovers is optional, and you can do if you like. I personally just like the buttery popovers straight from the oven.
