At the Table

Coming right out and saying it.... I have a new foodie obsession. OK, I've only made them twice, but I'm scouring the internet for recipes and plotting when I can make them again. I'm talking about popovers.

The recipe that spoke to me so loudly that I went to purchase a popover pan in the first place was Half Baked Harvest's Parmesan Popovers with Crispy Sage Garlic Butter. Sage is one of the most prolific plants in our herb garden right now, so I know that was part of it. But also, popovers had been an enigma to me for ages. If I'd ever had them, I didn't remember, and on an impulse, I decided to find out more.

Let's just say that first batch of popovers was soooo tasty! A little breadier than I'd expected, and I later found out why. It's of vital importance to have the empty pan in the oven as it heats up. Somehow I'd missed that little detail. But no bother, they were still eye-rolling, lip-smacking good.

So my next try was again a HBH recipe, Salted Rosemary Popovers with Honey Butter. Oh yeah. Another trip out to the herb garden, some of our favorite Maldon flaked salt, and honey butter. This batch 'popped' a little better, and again, with a very happy and delicious result.

So. Have you tried them? Do tell! And if you have a recipe I should try, I'd love to hear about it, because I've been thinking about the next batch all week!
