In this video, you’ll see how to make incredibly simple popovers. Yes, just eggs, milk, salt, and flour make unbelievably poofy popover perfection possible! Chef John will walk you through the technique before revealing his patented 'double-grease' trick for making sure the popovers don't stick to the muffin tins. If you like, before sliding the batter into the oven, top each popover with just a slight sprinkle of grated Cheddar cheese. The trick to baking them is to start with a cold oven! No pre-heating. They puff up beautifully, golden brown with a crispy exterior and a light, eggy, airy interior. Yum! Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Popovers. Great with butter and jam like a dinner roll, excellent for dipping in stews and soups, and unbelievable cut in half and stuffed with chicken or tuna salad. See more Chef John videos >>

Does this work with gas and electric ovens? It takes my electric oven a LONG time to reach 450 Degrees.
