Sorry, I just didn't like these. The recipe was easy enough to follow, but what came out was kind of eggy and a bit flat- I don't know what a popover is supposed to be, so maybe that's the way they are meant to be, but I just didn't like them. Sorry!

This was the first time I have made popovers, and it was so easy! The only thing different I did was use a little over a tsp of ground sage as I didn't have fresh on hand. I served them along side Recipe #34512. What a satisfying meal. I was looking for something to have with the soup, besides crackers. This was a fantastic choice. :)
