TWD: Popovers

I'm an admin for the TWD site.  You'd think that would mean I'd remember when it was time to bake and post a new recipe.  You'd be wrong.  I happened to see that my friend Dawn of Simply Sweet put up a post on Facebook about loving the popover recipe.  And then I screamed internally.  I meant to make them with dinner.

But this recipe?  This recipe is fabulous.  I whipped it up in about two minutes (literally whipped - you make it in the blender) and got it in the oven.  There are five ingredients.  Five.  Butter.  Milk.  Flour.  Salt.  Egg.  All things I have on hand.  I don't have a popover pan, so I used my muffin tin.





These were so good.  Really good.  The Girl was almost convinced to stop reading while she was eating.  That's how good these were.  The Boy crunched on despite having his braces tightened today.  The pain was worth it.  

These are definitely going into permanent rotation.  I can see adding some savory touches and some sweet ones as well.  These could sub really well for profiteroles.  Go see Paula's and Amy's blogs for much better photos and the recipe.

This was a great recipe--one I've never made. I'll make it for the grandkids--monster muffins I'll call them.

This was the week for last-minute attempts at the recipe - so easy and delicious. Love that your daughter kept on reading right through dinner. It reminds me of myself when I was a kid.

I'm so happy and thanksful to be part of it.
We all loved the popovers!
I've made some sweet and some cheesy (Grana cheese) adding rosemary and spices...
This recipe is a winner...definitely and infinitely.

Sit down...are you sitting? Breathe...are you breathing? Okay, yes, it's truly me with the right recipe on the right day in the right manner posted on time...wow, who would have thought? Are you still okay? Do you need me to call for some help to revive you? I'll give you a minute. Okay...your popovers look really good (and yes love the ease of these) but my favorite thing is seeing The Boy and The Girl enjoying them...they are getting so grown up...tell them to slow down! xo

Brace tightening is rough - hope his mouth is well recovered.
