On the one weekday that I cook, the boys love it when I make Popovers.  I had never heard of popovers until I visited Northern Minnesota with my husband.  He was raised there.  On one visit, a friend of my mother-in-law gave me a church cookbook.  I have used that cookbook until the pages are falling out of the book!  If there's a fire in this house, we're saving THAT cookbook!


Popovers are a supper roll, of sorts.  They are very airy almost like a cream puff, but savory, not sweet.  If you do not own a popover pan you can bake these individual custard cups.  I was blessed enough to find a 6-popover pan in a thrift store a few months ago.  And we use it regularly. 


The recipe is quite simple, but you mus follow the directions exactly.  This recipe comes from the "Women's Fellowship of Union Congregational Church Hackensack, MN" cookbook, 1989 second edition.  There are two popover recipes here, but I used "Failproof Popovers" by Barbara Allen.  Enjoy!


Failproof Popovers

1 c. milk

1 c. flour

2 eggs

1/2 tsp. salt

Put all ingredients in a bowl, stir until blended.  Disregard lumps!  Pour into 6 cold, well-greased custard cups.  Place in cold oven.  Set oven at 450 degrees and time for 30 minutes.  Don't peek!  Serve immediately.
