This method for making popovers works well in high altitude areas. We like these served with soup. Source: The New High Altitude Cookbook.

Top Review by Gwendolyn A.

First of all if my popovers looked like the photo I would throw them out. The trick to high altitude backing is oven temp, to moisture, to time. I live above 5000 ft, and the temp should be lower (400 degrees) to allow them to cook slower and more evenly, cups should only be half full, and otherwise the recipe that is standard in Joy of Cooking, Betty Crocker, and others works fine. 450 degrees is wrong!
