It's all in the technique! These pop better when baked in a popover pan. If you don't have one, use a muffin pan with 1/2 cup cups and pour the batter into every other cup if the pan has less than one inch between cups.
3 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
About 1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush 6 popover or muffin cups with melted butter, or use nonstick spray. Use an electric mixer to beat all ingredients together until smooth. Do NOT overbeat. Pour batter evenly into cups, filling them at least 3/4 full. Place on a cookie sheet and bake until brown and puffy, about 40 to 45 minutes. Pierce each popover in several places with a thin wooden skewer, then continue baking until very well browned and crisp, about 5 minutes longer. Remove from oven and run a thin-bladed knife between the edge of each popover and the cup to loosen. Lift popovers from cups and serve hot. If made ahead, place slightly apart on a cookie sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven until crisp and hot, about 5 minutes.
172 calories per popover, and that does not include the butter and jam!
