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


  • 1/2 cup milk, room temperature
  • 1 egg, room temperature
