romantic popover pan gifts under 20 dollars ideasMy wife’s Christmas list included a popover pan for many years, and I finally broke down and picked one up for her. I thought it was just another kitchen implement which would eventually get stored in the basement beside the salad spinner and ice cream maker.

On Christmas morning, my wife was ecstatic when she received the popover pan. I wasn’t. She wanted me to make them for breakfast the next day  I figured it was her present, and she could make them herself; however, I agreed to bake them. We found a recipe, and I was surprised to find that it only has four ingredients. I figured I could easily make a batch, and then store the pan in the basement. The next morning, I sampled my first popover and found that I loved them. We have enjoyed them for many romantic meals together. They are our breakfast of choice on the weekends, and I am proud to say that I am still the one who makes them.

Now that we have two children there just are not enough popovers to go around. I have a feeling that Santa will put another popover pan under our Christmas tree this year.

Popovers Recipe

Grease the popover pan. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Whip 2 eggs and a dash of salt. Stir in a cup of flour and a cup of milk. Do not over mix. Fill the popover pan half full. Bake for 20 minutes.  Reduce the heat to 350 and bake 20 more minutes. Serve with real maple syrup. Makes 6 popovers.
