Let us share a moment of silence for one of my favorite, easy dinner additions: popovers.
|delicious and ridiculously easy popovers|
This week is the first week in my new self-narrated challenge of taking better care of me. Part of it was based on evidence supporting the possibility that I may be allergic to most gluten and bread products, but also my curiosity in the Primal Blueprint lifestyle. If you aren’t familiar with the name, don’t worry, most aren’t. I’ve been getting most of my information from sites like Mark’s Daily Apple which is a great resource.
Here is a basic diagram of what the Primal Blueprint is structured on:
So in honor of all the pastas and breads I love dearly (but seem to be hurting me!) I am sharing with you my FAVORITE pop overs recipe. I actually got this recipe from RealSimple.com and honestly didn’t find anything I wanted or needed to change.
Here is a copy of the recipe:
Makes 12 popovers| Hands-On Time: 05m | Total Time: 40m
Ingredients· 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the pan
· 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
· 1 1/2 cups whole milk
· 4 large eggs· 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Directions1. Heat oven to 400° F. Brush the cups of a 12-cup nonstick muffin tin with butter.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, eggs, butter, and salt until only a few lumps remain (do not overmix).
3. Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups and bake until puffed and a deep golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. (Do not open oven door before 30 minutes or the popovers will collapse. Remove 1 popover to check that the underside is browned.) Serve immediately.

And look what one batch produces!
If you aren’t familiar with pop overs, they are nice puffy little breads. Very light and airy, and hallow in the inside. It is not uncommon for them to get stuffed with random dips, sauces, butter and food in my house. They are great with almost any meal. And, incredibly easy to bake.
I will solemnly miss eating you, delicious and ridiculously easy popovers!
