Food Friday: Recipe for Popovers

These look just like ours--I even have this pan!

The Food Friday recipes are on four different posts this week--check them all out!

The Recipes are for Chicken Pesto, Basil Carrots, Popovers, Crispy Pretzel Bars, and Chocolate Peanut Grahams.

Tuesday we had the privilege to visit some new friends who have 3 girls aged 10-12 (they are a blended family), a boy who's 9, a 2-year-old and they're expecting a baby in 2 weeks! The mom is very busy, needless to say.  Her girls are at varying skill levels, but are a huge help and could be even more in the next years, especially with the cooking, which isn't something the mom really loves to do. My goal was to increase their skill and excitement about cooking and encourage the mama, who just needed fellowship with another mom and to talk.

So! I thought it would be fun and a help to have Kelsey, who loves to cook, make a simple meal with the girls, rather than just bringing a meal to them.  One thing the girls don't get to do very often, due to life, is make desserts.  The girls love to make desserts!  So, Kelsey found two that were fun and easy! (They actually made 3 desserts that day, if you can believe it, 
because they had extra chocolate they "had to" use up.  The last one was kind of like Scotcheroos!)

One of the girls was sick, so we hope to include her next time and get to know her better, but we all really enjoyed ourselves and our time with them, and hope to visit and help more after the baby comes.

Do you want to encourage your girls to cook? Or just want some easy recipes? Here are the recipes for the meal that our girls prepared!  The meal was delicious!

Serves:  6 large popovers
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter; melted
2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt

  • In a large bowl, beat eggs until frothy using a wire whisk.
  • Beat in milk and butter until well blended.
  • Add flour and salt.  Beat till blended. (Do not overbeat; mixture will not be perfectly smoothe.)
  • Divide mixture evenly among six well-greased popover cups.  (You can use large muffin cups, but your popovers won't "pop" up as high.)
  • Place popover pan on baking sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.  Important:  DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR FOR ONE HOUR!
  • Quickly make small slits in the top of each popover to allow steam to escape.
  • Bake 10 minutes longer.
  • Immediately remove popovers from cups.  Loosen with metal spatula, if necessary.  Serve immediately.

They actually taste WAY, WAY BETTER than they look. Picture butter melting into hot folds of doughy scrumptiousness, and crunchy crust. Ooh, yum. (Imagine they have no calories, too!)
