Strawberry butter is the perfect addition to a popover. Add some hot chocolate and your breakfast is complete! Click here for the recipe from Kitchen Sink Recipes. 

Another fantastic popover topping is apple butter. Apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and allspice are the perfect flavor combinations for the season. Click here for the recipe from Cake Student.

Learn how to make a perfectly poached egg from Smitten Kitchen here and place it on your popover.  Your family will be so impressed! 

This is the ultimate breakfast idea. Make this smoked salmon eggs benidict and place it inside a popover! I couldn't resist adding this to the list. While I don't recommend actually making this on Christmas morning (strawberry butter is more than enough), you can order it the next time your in NYC at the Popover Cafe. It's amazing! 

Popovers Please!

Popovers are the perfect breakfast food to make on Christmas morning. The recipe simply uses eggs, milk, flour, butter and salt. The results, however, are anything but simple. You'll get dramatic, buttery puffs ready to be eaten plain or with your favorite toppings. While it's best to serve hot out of the oven, the chefs at Popover Cafe in NYC say it can be wrapped in tinfoil and stored in the refrigerater for up to three days or frozen for up to a month. To reheat, place in an oven at 375 degrees for around 5 minutes or until warm.  Recipe below and topping ideas in the slideshow. Enjoy!
