Sausage, Potato & Asparagus Popovers

I made it nearly 4 entire months without a savory popover. Up until today, it’s been chocolate, cream cheese, berries and marshmallows. But finally, I caved.


Savory Popovers.

I filled these goodies with diced potatoes, bits of asparagus, breakfast sausage, and a nice handful of cheese. Think omelet, except breadier.

Think delicious.

Delicious enough, in fact, that I am entering it into the Wake Up With Johnsonville Contest. Who knows? Maybe I’ll win something! What do you think…is it worthy?
