We were having leftover pot roast tonight and I was trying to think of something different to do with it, so I made popovers and filled them with mashed potatoes and surrounded it with the leftover roast beef and gravy, carrots and green beans from our garden. This is a perfect make ahead dinner and you only have to make the popovers before serving and heat the rest.
Popovers are easy to make, they are just eggs, flour, milk, butter and salt. They take less than 5 minutes minutes to mix up and about 30 minutes to bake depending on your pan. Leftover popovers are wonderful with butter and jam or dipped in real maple syrup like they do in New England.
- 1 tablespoon butter - melted
- butter - for greasing tin
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- Heat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a popover tin.
- In a large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, buuter and salt. Add the flour and fold until just blended.
- Fill the popover cups two-thirds to three-quarters full.
- Transfer cups to oven, and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees, and bake 20 minutes more, until well browned and crusty.
- Remove popovers from the oven, and unmold onto a rack. Puncture the sides with a sharp knife to let steam escape, and serve immediately.
- Makes 6.
