Popovers- Sweet for Breakfast

"This is a good sweet bread type of popover developed from a lot of trial and error to copy one from a hospital years ago!! We make them almost every weekend, very quick to make due to no heat up time for oven!!"

    this was both my first attempt at making popovers and eating them. These were okay. I wasn't fond of the eggy taste as I thought I would be. Picky 3-year-old ate half of one - which is great for her considering she doesn't usually try something new. Thanks for posting, but I don't think I'll be making these any more.

    These are wonderful! I made them for breakfast this morning and my whole family loved them. We tried them with honey, boysenberry syrup, and strawberry syrup. No wrong way to do it. Next time I'm going to try sprinkling them with sugar.


I live in beautiful central califonia, but grew up in the cold of colorado!! I am an RN, IBCLC and look for food with a typical quick prep, and LOVE my crockpot. I love all types of food, from the fancy to the local taco stand- it's all good and a pet peeve would be the food snobs of the world.
