Popovers: Bread of the Week 19

I know what you are thinking. I can hear you from here. "Popovers? Isn't that a quick bread? Isn't that cheating?" And I suppose you are a little bit right. I had a busy weekend (Thank you for visiting Mary-Claire! Happy Birthday Conor & Ellie!) and by the time Sunday rolled around I didn't want to spend my day waiting for the dough to rise.

So popovers it was. I was excited to try popovers, having recently procured a popover pan for $1 at a garage sale. They are surprisingly easy to make; they go from ingredients to yum in about an hour and fifteen minutes. I am a popover convert and plan to impress people with them at dinner parties in the future (disclaimer - I will never actually throw a dinner party as I am too lazy to do more than make cocktails for guests). I was so excited about the popovers I forgot to take a picture. You'll just have to believe me that they were delicious and warm and puffy.

I totally want to come to your house for a non-dinner party! I don't drink so you won't have to make more than one and I will so help by bringing food so you don't have to cook it all! I'm glad the pop overs worked out so well & glad you had so much time with family this weekend!
