Popovers are a classic accompaniment for the Thanksgiving feast, and they're also delicious for breakfast, paired with butter and jam. Or serve them alongside soups and stews.
- 4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 6 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups all-purpose ﬂour
- 1 tsp. salt
- Unsalted butter for serving (optional)
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk, then whisk in 2 Tbs. of the melted butter.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt, then whisk in the egg mixture. Whisk vigorously until smooth, about 2 minutes. Divide the batter among the prepared cups and bake for 20 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F and bake for 15 minutes more. Remove from the oven and invert the pan onto a wire rack.
Let the pan cool, then spray the wells with nonstick cooking spray, pour 1/2 tsp. of the melted butter into each one, and bake the remaining batter. Serve immediately with butter.
