From Bon Appétit, December 2005, by Bruce Aidells and Nancy Oakes These popovers are like individual Yorkshire puddings. To make a dozen large popovers, just double the recipe and use two pans. Companion recipes are Standing Rib Roast With Porcini and Bacon Sauce, Porcini and Bacon Sauce, and Horseradish Cream Sauce.

- 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter, melted

I made to serve with beef roast. I used the following cooking method from Cook's Illustrated: Heat oven to 450F. Measure 1/2 teaspoon fat into each cup and place pan in oven to heat for 3 minutes (fat will smoke). Working quickly, remove pan from oven, close oven door, and divide batter evenly among 12 muffin (or popover) cups, filling each about 2/3 full. Immediately return pan to oven. Bake, without opening oven door, for 20 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake until deep golden brown, about 10 minutes longer. Remove pan from oven and pierce each pudding with skewer to release steam and prevent collapse. Using hands or dinner knife, lift each pudding out of tin and serve immediately.
These were delicious! I used Parmesan and Cheddar cheeses. I halved the recipe and got 8 popovers. They rose so nice and looked so pretty! Thank you so much Ellie!
