Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.” James Beard

Note: Bring a little taste of the Oak Grill to your kitchen, with this easy-to-make recipe from "The Marshall Field's Cookbook".

*Helps to have a Popover Pan or Deep Muffin Tins

• Non-stick cooking spray for pans

• 5 eggs

• 1 2/3 c. whole milk

• 5 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled

• 1 2/3 c. flour

• 1/2 tsp. salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat popover pans or deep muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray and heat pans in oven for at least 15 minutes.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat eggs until frothy. Add milk and melted butter and mix well. Add flour and salt and mix to just combine. Carefully divide batter among preheated pans, filling each cup just under half full.

Bake 30 to 40 minutes, until puffy and well-browned (finished popovers should pull away from pan easily and feel light to touch). Remove from pan and serve warm.
