Popovers are light, puffy, breads that fill with air and rise as they bake.  Causing them to ‘popover’ the tops of the baking dish.  The primary ingredients are eggs, flour, and milk.  Flavours (such as blueberries) can be added.  Popovers are a light breakfast food, in my opinions a sort of cross between muffins and pancakes.  They’re light little bit sized muffins, that are eggy and light cooked with steam giving them the taste of a pancake… or even choux pastry.

I over cooked my Blueberry Popovers a bit…

The popover is believed to be an American derivative of the English Yorkshire Pudding.
