Cold and dreary day means time for some comfort foods. Today I made a dish that both my Mom and Grandmother made as we were growing up. Popovers.

Inspiring Kitchen Comfort Foods Popovers

If you have never had them before, they are light and airy with an eggy interior and a delicate outside.


So simple in terms of ingredients but so many uses for it:

  • Brunch
  • Breakfast
  • With a salad or soup
  • Side to main courses
  • Filled with light ingredients – tuna, chopped fruit, diced vegetables

The recipe is filled with items you already have in your kitchen. The biggest trick is having the right pan. They expand significantly as they bake which can be deceptive when choosing the right pan. Here are a few ideas of what you can use if you don’t have a popover pan (although you are going to like these so much you will wish you had one of these pans!):

  • Muffin or cupcake pan – there are different sizes of these as you know. Using the larger 6-cup format will give room for the popovers to get big and light and airy.
  • Ramekins
