Popovers, also referred to as Yorkshire Pudding, are a great accompaniment to a juicy roast beef or steak dinner. Key things to making great popovers are to make sure the oil in the pan is hot before pouring the batter in, and no peeking while popovers are baking. Rising high in the pan, crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside is what you are looking for in the perfect popover. Time to invest in a Nordic Ware Popover pan so I can get those really high popovers!
