1 cup flour

1/4 tsp. salt

2 eggs, unbeaten

1 cup milk

Melted fat

Put flour in bowl, make a well in the center, drop in salt. Add the milk gradually and stir well. When smooth, add the unbeaten eggs and beat until smooth and bubbly. This will be a thin batter. While beating, have 12 greased muffin tins heating in hot oven at 450 degrees for a few minutes. Fill muffin cups 1/3 full. Bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes then turn oven down to 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Popovers may be split and filled with dried beef, milk gravy or creamed chicken. Serve hot. Gravy filling should be made while popovers are baking or they can be eaten buttered in place of bread.
