Every once in awhile I get a hankering for some nice warm buns with a hearty soup, like my Beef Spinach Orzo pictured below.
I haven't made popovers in forever and my family loves them. The first time I made them I didn't have a popover pan so I used a muffin pan and they were good, but not as high and pretty as what I think a typical white flour popover looks like.
They should look like my pic above, which by the way, I am so thrilled about because they came out pretty high for whole wheat, don't you think?
I'm in LOVE with my new popover pan! Here it is!
Isn't it the cutest thing you ever saw?!!!
This is a super quick and easy recipe that can be made on any given evening. The only disadvantage is the fact they don't warm up well the next day. Making only enough for your meal is the best bet. Enjoy them as soon as they pop out of the oven. This recipe is just enough for our family of five, making only 6 yummy, savory popovers.
If you decide to make them, especially if you might be a popover connoisseur, please let me know how you like this whole wheat version.
