Cornmeal Popovers

(from Lisalouisville’s recipe box)

Test Kitchen Tip: The secret to perfect popovers lies in the temperature: You’ll need to spoon the batter into a hot muffin pan and immediately pop them into a hot oven. By preheating the oven with the muffin pan inside, you’ll achieve the perfect popover temperature. The rest is simple—with basic ingredients you already have in your pantry, like flour, milk, eggs, and butter, you can make these golden brown appetizer bites in less than thirty minutes.

  • 1/2 cup fine white cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

  1. Place a 12-cup muffin pan in oven. Pre-heat oven to 450°F. (Do not remove pan.)
