Pop-Overs (a Recipe)

Editing this post to link up with Sandra for Cooking Thursday.

I’m no food photographer … and I’m no cook or baker – but lately, I’ve been trying to learn to cook better (lately = the last 3 years!!).  I have a ga-billion recipes printed, written down, or cut out of magazines. 
Yesterday I took some time to look through them, put them in a binder, and write down the ones I want to try soon.
I happened to have all the ingredients for SECRETLY SIMPLE POPOVERS (from Real Simple magazine)
I made them last night – but I ate one this morning with a little NUTELLA on it – and it was STILL yummy!!
There are 4 eggs in this recipe, and I hoped that would help my husband as he is trying to do a “low carb” diet right now (and is losing weight at an amazing rate – I hate him!!  j/k!).


Hands-on Time:  5 minutes
Total Time:  40 minutes
makes 12 popovers.

3 TBSP unsalted butter, melted – plus more for the pan
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
1 1/2 cups whole milk (I used 2% – no difference)
4 large eggs
1/2 tsp kosher salt

~  Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Brush the cups of 12-non-stick muffin tin cups with butter.

~  In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, eggs, butter, and salt  until only a few lumps remain (do not overmix).

~  Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups and bake until puffed, golden brown – 30-35 minutes.  DO NOT open the oven door before 30 minutes are up or the popovers will collapse!  Remove one popover to check the underside for brown-ness.  SERVE IMMEDIATELY. 

SO YUMMY just warm and plain – or with butter and honey – or reheated in the morning with NUTELLA!!  🙂
