Popovers, Mushroom (D)
Source: Better Homes and Gardens "Quick and Easy Comfort Food"
Serves: 3 (2 popovers per serving)

1/3 cup dried mushrooms, such as Shiitake or Porcini
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. dried thyme leaves, crushed
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tbsp. cooking oil
1 cup all purpose flour
Nonstick cooking spray

Coat the cups of a popover pan or six 6-ounce custard cups with nonstick cooking spray. Place the custard cups on a 15"x10"x1" baking pan; set aside.

In a small bowl pour boiling water over the dried mushrooms to cover; let stand for 5 minutes. Drain, pressing out the liquid. Finely chop the mushrooms.

In a medium mixing bowl stir together mushrooms, salt, thyme, and pepper. Add milk, eggs and oil. Using a rotary beater, beat until mixed. Add flour and beat just until mixture is smooth. Spoon batter into prepared cups, filling each half full.

Bake in a 400°F oven about 35 to 40 minutes or until very firm. Remove from oven. Immediately prick each popover with a fork to let steam escape. Loosen edges. Remove popovers from cups. Serve immediately.
