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
