Today´s recipe for the Tuesdays with Dorie group is Popovers.
I had never made popovers before, let alone tasted them. Not really that popular around here and considering that “Popover is an American version of Yorkshire pudding “, that does not really come as a surprise. But Popovers are easy to make. For the dough, all you have to do is mix five ingredients together, namely milk, eggs, butter, flour and salt. Then you have to butter either a Popover pan (which I do not own) or bowl or even cups or mugs (which I used), bake in the oven and wait for them to pop over the rim. That is it!
They are quite fun to make and can be enjoyed at breakfast or tea time with butter and jam or at lunch or dinner time to mop up some wonderful sauce.
They have a wonderful appeal to them because of their puffed tops and their crusty outsides and soft insides. Let us not forget their taste, to me they can be considered comfort food, they are similar in taste to the Yorkshire pudding that I ate a few times, sans the roastbeef drippings.

Let's call Yorkshire pudding
A fortunate blunder:
It's a sort of popover
That turned and popped under.
