Add the popover pan or muffin tin to a sheet tray and preheat in the oven for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, butter, and milk until combined and smooth.
Next in a separate large bowl whisk together the flour and salt until combined and then add in the wet ingredients.
Whisk until completely smooth and set aside. If you cannot get it completely smooth, add it to a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds.
Take the preheated pan out of the oven and immediately spray with non-stick spray. Evenly pour in the batter until each cup is about 2/3 to ¾ of the way full.
Bake at 425° for 20 minutes and then at 325° for 10 minutes.
Make-Ahead: These are meant to be eaten as soon as they are baked, but they can be made up to 1 day ahead of time. Reheat them before serving.
How to Reheat: Place the desired number of popovers on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven at 350° for 3-4 minutes or until hot. You can also cook in the microwave on a microwave-safe plate until hot.
How to Store: Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Cover and freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator for 1 day before reheating.
You do not have to use a popover pan for this recipe, simply substitute with a large 6 or regular 12 count muffin tin.
If you cannot get the batter thin enough when whisking, transfer to a blender and blend on high until it is completely smooth.
You may need to cook these in batches if you only have 1 pan.
