Asparagus Popover

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Ms B.

From the May 2008 issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray. This is super easy and makes a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner. She suggests that for a change, you may want to sprinkle cooked bacon into the batter.

Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I made it as posted just added a little extra cheese. I cut the asparagus first, quickly blanched, then iced them. They were the perfect crispness when the dish was baked. Great recipe!
