Herb Popovers

Recipe by echo echo

I love popovers just out of the oven and slathered in butter. (UPDATE: ERROR CORRECTED SINCE 3-STAR REVIEW). In the oven, they should blow up like little balloons that have a hollow area inside. Watch their progress through the oven window as they cook, rather than opening the oven door. A muffin pan can be used in place of the custard cups.

We really enjoyed these. I used a muffin tin (that is a tad smaller then a regular one) and got 12 small popovers out of this. I used skim milk and honestly just forgot the parmesean. We loved it without! Great instructions on how to make them. Thanks so much!
