I recently decided to add some rosemary to the traditional recipe and I loved it. They're just slightly doughy on the inside, i.e., perfect.
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
1/4 t. salt
1 T. melted butter (sometimes I use olive oil)
1 sprig rosemary, leaves pulled off
Mix the ingredients on a low speed for about 30 seconds, scraping the bowl as you go. Divide the batter evenly into 8 well-greased and floured muffin cups. Put the pan into a cold oven and set it to 450. After 15 minutes, turn the oven down to 350 and cook for an additional 25 minutes. The popovers will be golden brown and puffy. Cut a slit into the side of each popover. Serve warm with extra butter, says my mom. There's really no nutritional value to these guys, but, before the additional butter you slather on, they're about 100 calories apiece, so not too bad.
