  1. 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!
     
  2. made these in an electric oven at Tahoe...at 20 minutes they were done, only two had eggy wet centers in them..will try more batter in cup, and longer time, but PERFECT! my boss said theone she ate five seconds ut of the oven was the best one she had ever had!thank you, ellie!
     
  3. 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!
     
  4. I'm at about 2200 feet and this recipe worked well for me! The inside was nice and hollow, just right for putting in a spoonful of butter!Thanks ellie!

<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
