I reduced the dill to just a dash (my personal preference), but otherwise made this as directed and it turned out perfectly!

I skipped the red pepper and onion based on our family's tastes. I made this for company and it was a hit, plus later when my husband got home from work he said it was great heated up. It looks so pretty on the table and tastes great!

This recipe was great. The only thing I found difficult was the timing. With small children I prepared the filling ahead of time and just reheated it when the popover was ready. Definetely a make again.
