The only thing that is remotely difficult about this recipe is that the milk and eggs have to be at room temperate in order for the popovers to “pop” up properly (try to say that 3 times fast). So yes, it does require you to think ahead a little, which I for some reason struggle with on occasion. But other than that the recipe is super easy, and they are by far one of my daughters’ favorites!
Feel free to enjoy them with breakfast, lunch, or dinner (or as leftovers), and don’t be afraid to get creative too. For breakfast you can spread some butter and/or jelly on the popovers while they are warm out of the oven. Or before you even bake them you can sprinkle a generous helping of cinnamon on top of the batter in each muffin cup. For lunch or an elegant dinner side item, pop a piece of crumbly cheese (goat or blue) in the center of each batter cup. To accompany spaghetti, sprinkle them with some garlic powder before baking. The possibilities are endless so have fun and enjoy!

anyone try adding chocolate chips or blueberries? my kids keep asking for entemanns ‘little bites’ and I wont buy those. Im looking for alternative to make at home.
Hi. Those additions should turn out just fine. :)
My batter was quite funny and they came out flat as can be. It’s clearly an easy recipe…no idea what could have gone wrong.
