Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Sift the flour and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and crack in the eggs. Gradually mix the eggs with the flour, then slowly add the milk until you have a smooth, thin batter. Cover and chill for 30 mins.

  2. Drizzle the olive oil into 8 wells of a muffin tin. Heat in the oven for 5 mins or until the oil is smoking hot. Season the batter to taste, then carefully pour onto the hot oil. Sprinkle the sausage and pepper pieces over and return to the oven for 25-30 mins until risen and golden. Can be frozen at this stage for up to 1 month. To cook from frozen, cover tightly with foil and re-heat at 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 for 20-25 mins until piping hot. Serve with beany gravy (recipe below).

I was so looking forward to this recipe and was very disappointed when my initially wonderfully risen golden brown popovers fell flat as pancakes when taken out of the tin.
I followed the recipe exactly- but maybe it was just my lack of experience in the yorkshire pudding area that let me down. I'm sure that someone who knew what thay were doing could have made a success of these!
The beany gravy was lovely though and we ended up just having it on some toast instead of on the popovers (which ended up in the bin)

The beany gravy sounds healthy and tasty. Not sure about my talents with Yorkshire pudding anything!! Might try it though, at the very least, with scrambled eggs.

Personally I think this looks really nice. Will possibly try in the next school holidays, but with normal sausages. Also might only use 1/2 pepper, and add an onion, but dice these really really finely. A small deseeded chilli, finaly chopped, could help as well. Will report back on these, but well done good food for a healthy meal that will appeal to kids - and its a little bit different than normal ones!
