"My granddaughter Anna (10) made these for dinner. They are like Toad in the Hole. This is great with a light salad. And I thought I would post her recipe here for you to enjoy too! The recipe says it makes 12 popovers. But that is relative to the size of the muffin tins. NOTE: Apple Chicken Sausages not included in the Nutritional Facts"

What a treat these are! They're a whole lot of fun and made for a wonderful Monday night dinner served along with salad as suggested. They'd be great for breakfast/lunch too. We used Sweet Apple Chicken sausages and made the gravy as noted, except ran the gravy through the blender to hide the onions (my son claims to hate them). So good with the gravy-YUM! However, mine didn’t raise very much, but I think it’s because my tins weren’t hot enough. Thank you, Luvcookn, for sharing. Made it for Billboard and What's on the Menu tag games.
