Or you can use mad science to alter the flavor to complement any main dish. With a few additions to the basic finished popover recipe below, it can even be dessert.

Can’t-Screw-It-Up Popover Recipe

Impressively delicious!

1 cup milk

1 cup flour

1 tablespoon oil (vegetable or grapeseed)

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine milk, flour, oil and salt. Beat on high for one minute. Add eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each. Pour mixture about halfway up into double-greased (try butter and spray oil) muffin tin or a popover pan. Place in a cold oven. Set oven to 425°. Bake 30 minutes. Be sure to keep the oven door closed for at least 30 minutes; otherwise, the steam inside the popovers condenses and they collapse. You’ll know they’re done when they’ve puffed up beautifully and have a crispy golden-brown exterior. Remove immediately and serve hot. The hollow interior will be light and airy.

Add to batter 1/2 cup grated cheese, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/4 dried sage, 1/4 teaspoon dried basil.

Or make the basic recipe and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar when they come out of the oven and drizzle honey on top. Dessert! end
