Giant Popovers

Enormous, golden, light and flaky, and I could go on...these can't even be put in the same category as dinner rolls. Think of popovers as giant baked gifts perfect for scooping up gravy, mashed potatoes, soup, or a perfect pat of butter. They're easy to make and are an absolute show-stopper when served in a heaping basket.
