Popovers are so addicting; they are like drugs. Fluffy, delicious, eat-all-and-not-share drugs. There are so many different variations of them, and this recipe is simply one in a dozen. Traditional popovers are already so mind-blowing, any additions just make them that much better. I don't quite remember where I'd stumbled upon this recipe, but it's definitely one for keep.
