Popovers are beyond special. They take some time to bake, but require few ingredients. All you need is patience for the magic to happen. And it will. And you will never want the holidays without popovers. The secret is to have several ovens, as they require 45 minutes of uninterrupted work, which means they can be made while the turkey is resting. Perfect.
David's note: While we enjoyed popovers with butter and jelly this morning for breakfast (and Nacho and Guero LOVED them, too), I would recommend you take some cut up turkey or roast beef that you are having for holiday dinner and stuff it inside the popover with gravy...and eat it!
