Favorite Popovers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by BasilBee

My brother is diabetic and because these popovers have such little flour, he loves them. I have these down to a science -- very little cleanup. These are delicious and light. I never have any leftovers -- everyone covets them and forgets the Miss Manners' rule about not taking the last one from the basket.

My brother is diabetic, too, as well as myself and my DH, which is why I made this recipe, the carbs are nice and low. It was VERY easy to make. They tasted a little eggy to me, but all I had was jumbo sized eggs, so I may have had a little I knew popovers are supposed to be kind of hollow, but mine had a hole all the way through the bottom. However, I put them in the upper oven, when I was cooking in the lower oven, so my pan may have started out too hot. I will definately make these again!
