A wedding gift arrived today: the Williams-Sonoma Popover Pan!
For any reader who’s ever had popovers, you know that these eggy baked concoctions are pure heaven on earth. I did a little jig when I saw what was inside the box (which I’ll get to later), and immediately whipped up some popover batter.
THIS PAN IS AMAZING.
I’d made popovers tons of times before in muffin tins, but this pan lets you make them on a whole other level. They are super-easy to prepare, and they come out absolutely, magazine-quality perfect. This would really wow a group of houseguests or just be a fantastic weekend surprise!
Check out my popovers (the only two left since we pounced the minute they came out of the oven. These are the runts of the litter!):
My only gripe is a broader one about Williams-Sonoma: Everything arrives in massive boxes with tons of interior packaging and foam peanuts. I realize that they have to make sure things arrive in one piece, but the size of some of these boxes has been utterly ridiculous.
Here is a photo of all the packaging that came with this single, relatively small popover pan:
It looks absurd, right?!?
So get thee to a Williams-Sonoma store and buy thyself a popover pan… without the surplus packing!
