Easy Muffin Tin Popovers

These popovers take only 10 minutes to prep, and they make a great pairing with cranberry sauce. You can also make cranberry butter to go with them by whipping cranberry sauce and Nellie’s Free Range Sea Salted Butter.

Make sure to use high-quality eggs like Nellie’s Free Range Eggs to get the delicious rich and eggy flavor. Nellie’s hens are Certified Humane Free Range, which means they live happy lives outdoors, and you can see and taste the difference. The shell is thicker, the yolk has a golden color, and the taste is richer.

These muffin tin popovers are a great side dish for Thanksgiving dinner. They can be served with savory dishes or enjoyed as a sweet treat. This time, I made them sweet by adding more brown sugar (4 tbsp instead of 2) and dusting powdered sugar on top. Heads up, more brown sugar made the surface burn more quickly, so be on the watch.
