Plain Popovers

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Tebo3759

My all time comfort food. It is not a Yorkshire but just as good I think. But you must not beat in the eggs or flour. It should be really lumpy and "eggy" looking before cooking. Use lots of Pam spray if not using non stick pan.

I really enjoyed these. Made them for dinner last night and they turned out perfect. Loaded mine with lots of butter...yummy!!! Whenever I go shopping at Marshall Fields (Hudson's) I always have a popover, now I can make my own. Thanks :)
