My usual popover recipe uses two eggs, so I was interested in this three-egg version. I used jumbo muffin tins, and got eight of the biggest, loveliest popovers you could want. The outside is crisp, the inside is light, and there is that little moist eggy part in the middle that makes them so delicious. If anyone wants to try this recipe, I do have one piece of advice: do NOT melt butter in the muffin cups and use that for the grease. In order for the popovers to "pop" correctly and provide the light, airy volume, the grease in the cups must be spitting hot. Butter cannot get hot enough without scorching (its smoke point is only 300° F.), and will not produce as good a result. Vegetable oil spray, though, works fine. I don't think they needed the butter for serving, but I have a couple left over and am looking forward to trying them with a little cheese tomorrow morning. Thanks for posting!

My super picky food-allergic toddler downed these! THANK YOU!<br/>I have never heard of popovers so had no clue what to expect. But I loved them and LOVED how easy they are!<br/>I replaced the "milk" with almond milk. Added a pinch of nutmeg.<br/>I used a mini muffin pan (shortened bake time to match)<br/>I did need more grease then I initially used as they stuck badly, but still tasted wonderful!<br/><br/>I look forward to stuffing these later!!

I chose this recipe because of the extra egg and they were great! The only change I made was to use butter instead of oil. These are a great high protein alternative to muffins for a quick breakfast. Tip: Melt the butter in the muffin cups, dividing it between them. Then pour the melted butter into the batter. Preheat just long enough to melt the butter so it doesn't burn.
