This is my grandma's recipe. She makes these for breakfast at least once a week. These are savory and delicious and best served with butter. I hope your family loves them as much as mine does.

For all you out there that remember Dinah Shore. I have her book "Someone"s In The Kitchen With Dinah" Which has just about the same recipe, Where she calls for 1 cup flour, this recipe calls for7/8..Where she calls for1/2 t salt, this recipe calls for 3/4.She says, there are 3 tricks to making a good "pOpover" 1..preheat oven..2..fill less than half...3..Do not peak. This says, Pour into muffin tin and set in cold oven, do not peek. Dinah says,425 oven,this says,410. Now, I have been making "Popovers" Dinah's way, for many a year.They are very good, never had a problem. This recipe,stucked to my popover pan..and yes I greased,they did rise, but did not seem done inside right.And this makes 6 not 12. Sorry, Grandma, I think I will stick with Dinah.

The thing that I loved about this recipe is the idea to put it in a cold oven and let them do their thing. It took a little less time for mine to be okay (maybe 5 minutes difference) because I used a gas oven. This made 10 for me using a standard muffin tin. I wish the recipe was more specific in some places, such as being more specific about the type of oven and things like that.

I have to say, mine stuck to the pan as well, which was frustrating after greasing the muffin tin well. Maybe it would help to make a suggestion as to how the recipe's author completed this step, so next time I will know the trick. I might stick to my Betty Crocker recipe on this one, but thanks for sharing the recipe!
