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

I don't think I'm in a high altitude area, but I tried this recipe anyhow. The popovers turned out beautifully and rose so high! I baked them for a little over 20 minutes at 400°. At this point they were nicely bronzed and high. I served them with gravy for my Sunday chicken dinner. This will be my regularly used Popover recipe from now on. Thanks for sharing Ellie2!
