One of my family's favorite meals is roast beef dinner with these delicious popovers.—Lorraine Caland, Thunder Bay, Ontario
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk and oil. Combine the flour, thyme, basil, sage and celery salt; add to egg mixture and mix well. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 45 minutes. Grease cups of a popover pan well with butter or oil; fill cups of two-thirds full with batter.
- Bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° (do not open oven door). Bake 15 minutes longer or until deep golden brown (do not underbake).
- Run a table knife or small metal spatula round edges of cups to loosen if necessary. Immediately remove popovers from pan; prick with a small sharp knife to allow steam to escape. Serve immediately.
Editor's Note: You may use greased muffin tins instead of a popover pan. Fill every other cup two-thirds full with batter to avoid crowding the popovers; fill remaining cups with water. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes and 350° for 10 minutes. Yield: 9 popovers.
