Based on a recipe from one of my very first cookbooks: The Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking. These are very nice popovers, and go well with prime rib of beef, in which case I substitute the beef fat renderings for the shortening.

I was having a really bad cooking day and burned them. But I really wanted popovers so I made them again in a roasting pan (like yorkshire pudding). Yummy! Great taste. Thanks mersaydees for a great addition to my birthday dinner! Made for Aus/NZ recipe swap 69
