Reasons why these Easy Popovers will be the first item to disappear from the Thanksgiving table:

1. They Melt in your mouth when served hot with butter
2. They’re fluffy, airy perfection
3. Perfect for soaking up the last bit of gravy from your plate
4. Everyone loves bread
5. They know you can get up and make another batch fast!

I was hooked after making these for the first time. Now, this easy popover recipe is part of our weekly suppers as well. I remember taking the tray out of the oven and taking in the aroma of fresh buttery muffins coming from the kitchen.

Like most of my recipes, clean up is a breeze just a blender and a pan so you’ll be good to go!

So what is a popover?

Best definition- A light roll that’s crispy on the outside but soft and airy on the inside. They are highly addictive and perfect in every way.

They’re also made in a special popover pan that has deeper cups which give them the ability to “pop over” the tins, hence the name- popover.

But since I am who I am, I wanted to make it a little easier and avoid getting one. more. pan. I’ll use maybe once or twice a year. We aren’t going to bother with multiple mixing bowls or whisks either. Just a blender and muffin tin.

The recipe is just as simple, blend the ingredients, pour the batter into the muffin pan, bake, and BOOM, you’ve just become the family’s favorite Thanksgiving host.

Hosting a holiday feast is no easy task but with a few years under my belt I can finally have everything ready by noon AND greet my guests in full attire. Mini applause here!

I’ve got it down to a science with a menu, prep plan, and reminders. I’ve stuck to the same menu for the past couple of years and you better believe these popovers are included along with the essentials like Oven Roasted Turkey, Carmelized Brussel Sprouts, and Sausage Stuffing.

My Tips to a Succesful Thanksgiving Dinner:

  • Plan the menu and delegate dishes to the family members and friends.
  • Start weeks ahead with the prep work. Anything that can be made ahead or prepped, DO IT!
  • On Thanksgiving day, before you get anything started, get yourself ready. Trust me.
