I have wanted a popover pan for about two years. They don't cost very much, around $20, but I have something against spending good money on a item that has only one purpose. I like items (and people) that are multi-taskers. On Tuesday I found a brand new popover pan in the original packaging for $1.50 at the thrift store. I just couldn't pass it up for that price.
I love popovers! They are simple to make and call for only basic ingredients- milk, flour, eggs and salt. I made these this morning and served them with strawberry butter. Yum!
UPDATE: I was feeling lazy and didn't want to type out the recipe. Still don't! This one at the Food Network is pretty much identical to the one I used (it came with the pan).
For the strawberry butter, I tossed a stick of butter (room temp), 1/4 cup strawberry preserves and 2T powdered sugar into my kitchenaide and whipped the heck out of it. I really want to try it with raspberry or blackberry preserves.
Oh and, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY tomorrow!
