I rarely surprise myself.
But here’s the thing…when I do, I REALLY do. For example, these Pizza Popovers. They shocked the snot out of me. What started as an experiment using what I could find in the fridge turned out to be something I will be making time after time. They were ridiculous, in the most savory, cheesy, starchy goodness kind of way.
Like pizza, but more decadent. Like bread, but fluffier. And cheesier.
Oh heck, I don’t know. Just freaking good.
Now, what would they be perfect with?
Pasta. And here’s the reason. People like bread with their pasta. I don’t know why, as it’s just adding one starch to another, but hey, I don’t make the rules. And starchy things taste good, so I am not about to buck the system. But that’s not the reason these are perfect with pasta.
The real reason is because it allows you to be uber lazy. No need to make bread all day. Plus, you’ll already have the tomato sauce you need to make them, as it will be simmering away on the stove. I am lazy, therefore, I want easy. Trust me, this is the best time to make these particular popovers.
Oh, and did I mention they are delicious?
Okay, they are delicious.
