Popovers have simple ingredients, are simple to make and simply taste amazing. Popovers are light, airy, gorgeous and make a great side to any main course.
I love making popovers when we have pot roast for dinner. They work so well with the pot roast gravy that my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
Popovers have simple ingredients which also means a simple taste. I add fresh sage to my popovers just for extra flavor. It is optional and if you don’t have sage you can leave it out. Growing and having my own herbs is essential in my kitchen. If your not growing your own herbs you should start! Plus it is cool and all your friends will be impressed.
