Popovers | Easy Popover Recipe | Light Airy Popover Muffins

Traditional Popover Muffins are light, fluffy and airy and can be eaten with almost any meal. They taste delicious.  You would be surprised how easy they are to make.


Years ago there was a restaurant in Connecticut called Yankee Silversmith.  Our families would go there for special occasions, such as Easter or Mother's Day.  They were known for their fabulous Popovers, traditionally served with Prime Rib dinners.  We would swoon over them.

As a young bride, I was a guest at a dinner where Prime Rib was served, and the host made Yorkshire Pudding.  It's similar to Popovers.  Yorkshire Pudding uses the juices from beef to make it.  While I never mastered Yorkshire Pudding, I did, however, master how to make Popovers.

Popovers Recipe

Try this easy recipe for Popovers to serve instead of bread or rolls with your next family dinner.  We like to have them at Christmas with a roast.

If there are any leftovers (rarely !) they are great heated up for breakfast with your favorite jam or pure Vermont Butter.


Hint:  My mom always greased her pans with Crisco, and I am a firm believer that this is the secret to making delicious Popovers. They will "Pop" right out.  No muffin liners needed.
