Asparagus Popover






Mmm lovely asparagus. I feel that asparagus is one of those underrated vegetables. As a kid, of course you wouldn't like it, all green and wobbly looking. The first time I had it, it was wrapped in phyllo dough and covered with Parmesan. That's were it all began....

Anyways this popover it quite tasty. It is light, airy and with the melted cheese mixed in, it sort of melts in your mouth. I had a problem with it sticking to the bottom of the skillet. Even with the two tablespoons of butter you place in the pan first.

So beautiful! Popovers are one of my guilty pleasures and the addition of the asparagus and cheese sound delightful. Great recipe!

Sounds delicious, but also reads word for word, verbatim, from Rachel Ray's site: http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipes/rachael-ray-magazine-recipe-search/breakfast-brunch-recipes/Asparagus-Popover
