Popovers for Two

This recipe has been handed down through my family, and I've had it for almost 50 years. My husband and I especially enjoy these popovers for a late breakfast or brunch, and they're tasty with soup or salad. Simply served with butter and honey, they're delicious anytime. —Alpha Wilson, Roswell, New Mexico

    Easy and delicious, we enjoy them with soup. They are perfect every time. I bought a popover pan and they come out of the pan with no trouble.
