snap, crackle, pop!


Our friends Andy and Amanda came over for brunch the other day and I made popover, creamed spinach, poached egg breakfast sandwiches (best breakfast ever). 

Maybe it was because of the barometric pressure of the coming blizzard, or because I was so glad that our friend Amanda was in town,  but the popovers were especially huge and puffy.  And delicious.

Those are impressive. I need to try my hand at popovers again. Frankly, I just need to start hosting regular brunches so I can have people over to eat them.

Oh my goodness gracious. That sounds like the most amazing breakfast sandwich maybe ever. Now I feel a deep need to make popovers and eat them with eggs. Right now. Do you think my coworkers would mind?

I think the real key was that the milk and eggs were at room temp. when I made the batter. I read somewhere that it makes them pop better, and based on how they turned out on Sunday, I'm pretty sure it's true!

My mom use to make popovers when I was a kid and it was my favorite thing ever. M.D. is from south and biscuits are his thing and I am from the north and popovers well, they make my heart sing. I must say though, I have always been a bit intimidated to really try to make them. Food I can cook, baking that is an art and your popovers look like art!!!

Nice going! The last time I made popovers they did not get huge and fluffy - but they still tasted good! I bet yours were dreamy!
