Popovers are light, hollow rolls made from an egg batter, with the name coming from the fact that the batter swells or "pops" over the top of the muffin tin while baking. It is a very popular breakfast pastry in Switzerland, liked by both adults and children as well. Some people, however, enjoy this snack at dinner time, especially when having guests or wanting to make it more spectacular. Popovers can be sweet or a bit salty, if made with cheese, the variety more common in Zurich. The ingredients for this dish are simple and easy to be found as they include eggs, milk, melted butter, flour, salt or sugar (for the sweet variant), Swiss cheese or any other filling. The eggs, milk and butter are mixed all together and gently poured into the flour combined with salt. The resulting mixture is placed in special muffin cups and baked in the oven. They are best served hot with tea, coffee, hot chocolate or juice.
