Popovers

Fast, easy, and they look like you spent actual time and effort on them....

These are adapted from Farm Journal's Homemade Bread. My poor copy is falling apart!

1 1/2 cups of milk
1 1/2 cups flour, white or wheat
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon oil or melted butter
3 eggs

Dump ingredients in mixer bowl. Mix on slow for a few seconds, then medium for a minute, until most lumps are gone. Pour into either large greased muffin cups or 2 large, greased pie pans. Bake at 350 to 400 until nicely browned, usually 15 to 25 minutes.

Serve with butter and jam.

These lend themselves well to variations. Top them with cheese before baking, or put a layer of sauteed chopped mushrooms and onions in the middle.
