Christmas Morning Popovers

 Christmas Morning Popovers
Popovers have been a Christmas morning tradition in my family for 30 years. I get up early to make the popovers, then wake the family to begin opening gifts. When the popovers are ready, I serve them with lots of butter and assorted jams. My father-in-law began the tradition. —Sue A. Jurack

Test Kitchen Tip Let the eggs and milk come to room temperature for about 30 minutes before preparing the recipe. Allowing them to warm up results in greater height.
