Tutorial Tuesday: No- Peek Popovers... the not so Epic FAIL

I am a total sucker for easy recipes... I LOVE recipes that are made from the most basic ingredients that just about everyone normally has on hand! Hmmm, I should have known this one would be too good to be yumm-o!

First of all, I should mention that this is my second attempt at making these No Peek-ers... and both times I've had to pop my popovers into the trash! I dare say, there shall be NO third attempt in my house! Ah, well! At least the pictures are nice... well not the last one!

Ingredients: milk, eggs and flour

Add your flour and milk into a large bowl.

Add two eggs.

Mix well. I wish that I had used my Kitchen Aid mixer... but looking back NOW, I'm glad that I don't have to waste my energy on washing more dishes by hand!

Pour the mixture into 8-10 well sprayed muffin cups. Place the muffin tin into a cold oven and turn the heat up to 450* for 30 minutes.

These popovers are called NO PEEK because you aren't allowed to open the oven door while they are baking... BUT, how will you know if they are scorching?

I guess I should have gone ahead with my tutorial on making PB&J... next time!

Seriously, back in my younger days as a cook, something like this would have wounded my cooking/baking pride (for lack of a better word), and kept me from trying new recipes for fear of another waste/disaster. For me, spending coupons allows me to feel the freedom to inexpensively try new recipes- and if they flop... ah well, better luck next time!

Total waste: $.40
2 eggs, $.20
1 cup flour, $.05
1 cup milk, $.15



Thanks for always making my day. I have had several frustrations like this, but at least you are only out *.40 cents* Again thanks for all you do to help us learn new things and how to save money!


I'm sorry about that. Maybe use an oven light? :) We love popovers - I can't remember the oven temp but I'm not sure if I've used that high of a temp before. I've made plenty of mistakes and have had to throw out lots of stuff.


That's what I was going to say ... oven light light the whole time they're baking. I'm still getting use to my new stove and need to adjust the temperature 25-50 degrees down from the instructions for baking.

Thanks for the advice! I did have the oven light on for a little while, but unfortunately I am a put it in the oven, set a timer and walk away kind of girl... maybe this recipe just isn't for me!


On another note - I have a few questions - I loved the toilet paper post that MSM did. Along those same lines, I don't have a good 'base' price for paper towels. We use cloths at home for most things, but there are sometimes when a good old paper towel is needed. I have no idea what's a rock-bottom or at least decent price. (I've bought the Kirkland brand from Costco) because they work well.

Also - good price on aluminum foil? Most of the coupons I see exclude the smaller sizes.

Just thinking about a good price post for stuff like that. Paper stuffs, foil, parchment paper, etc.

Hi Ellen,
I recently posted (see Thought Provoking Thursday's posts) about my 50% off regular retail prices is a great place to start in gauging whether or not the sale price + coupon is a 'stockpilable' deal. Less than 50% off of regular retail, for me, is a just purchase 1 or 2 price!
