A popular restaurant was noted for the giant popovers they served with their meals. I decided to do the same for special birthdays and other occasions. These popovers soon became family favorites, and they've been one of my specialties for 40 years. —Emma Magielda, Amsterdam, New York

"I've never had popovers before, let alone made them. I made these as the first made-from-scratch breakfast in our new house and they came out GREAT. The only issue I had was keeping them puffed long enough to get them to the table to eat, but maybe that's a normal popover problem? My grandma was visiting and she used to make them all the time, and she gives her thumbs up! My favorite way to have them is with some orange marmalade. Yummy!"

"I have had the same problem of the popovers not rising as I think they should. Have not taken time to research what the problem is ...... I follow recipes very carefully. And especially if it the first time to try the recipe. Failure."

"I guess I don't hold my tongue right as I cannot get these suckers to puff up. My daughter in law just rolls her eyes at me!!!"
