I was working one day & a lady came into the store looking for a popover pan. I told her how I was nervous to make them- she told me about a GREAT recipe online (find it here)- I went home & made them that night! They were so easy & delicious. They are one of my family's favorite things now. You really should give them a try!
I modified the original recipe...
and they still turned out okay- few- I was nervous.
I just didn't have that much milk on hand- 4 cups- I used 2 cups water 2 cups milk. No sweat, they were great & I will always make them this way from now on.
I only have one popover pan. It must have a smaller cup than the pan the recipe used because it made loads of small popovers & they were done a full 10 minutes ahead of time. I tried a muffin pan to make more- just to see how it would turn out- DON'T DO IT- train wreck. Really, borrow a popover pan, or buy one. It's the right thing to do.
I also didn't have fancy Gruyere cheese- which I love.
I put a little cheddar cheese on a few (just a tablespoon on each) then left the others plain.
They are so easy, a nice change to regular rolls & so- so good.
I served mine with butter & jam.
