POPOVERS-  They are delightfully delish!
They can be filled with anything or eaten plain.  They are wonderful no matter what.  There is this expensive restuarant in New York that serves them as their bread.  They are also reminisant of yorkshire pudding from  England.  You can use regular muffin pans, but they will not be as high as they will be if you use popover pans.
I found mine at a garage sale and a friend was getting rid ofone of hers.  So, I was blessed with 2. You can find the popover pans at just about any kitchen store for around $20.  I also might try the regular muffin tins and report back on them. But they will not rise as high.
6 is just not enough for my family of 4,so  I end up doubling the recipe.  My inspiration comes from the cookbook-"1000 Gluten Free Recipes" by Fenster.  Of course I am ALways making major  changes.
This recipe will make 12.  if you only have one popover pan you could bake 2x or do the other 6 in a muffin tin.
**As your oven heats up-450 degrees place your tins in the oven to heat up as well.
Do this now.
You also need a blender to mix most of the ingredients.
Cut up 8 slices of bacon with some kitchen scissors and brown the pieces. set aside.  reserve 3 tablespoons bacon fat.  This adds another great layer of flavor, but if you don't want to do this add the fat of your choice.

Add 3 tablespoons of reserved bacon fat to blender

Add 2 scant cups of "Lynn's flour blend"(with xanthan gum)to the blender
Add 6-7 eggs depending on the size.
Eggs are the most important ingredient in popovers.
Add 2 cups of milk of your choice, I use almond milk.
add 1/2t. salt.

So to review again- flour, eggs, milk,salt go into the blender,
give her a whirl.
The batter is  more like crepes, but not as thick as pancake batter.

4 tablespoons chives

<> love my picture of bacon{~;
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
reserved bacon
Add bacon cheese and chives to the blender bowl and give a quick pulse Just to blend and pour equally into hot tins.
Bake 450 degrees for 20 min.
Do not open the oven door. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake another 15 mins.
Because of the cheese and bacon these do not rise as high as the regular popovers. 
 boy, these are just delish! 
They do not need anything else with the bacon, cheese and chives added.
