Popover Pie with Ham and Peas

Cooking time: 45 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     One could call this a Savory Clafoutis or a Popover Pie or a Yorkshire Pudding Pie.  What Americans call popovers, the British call Yorkshire Pudding and it's basically the same batter used to make the French stone-fruit desserts called Clafoutis.  Whatever.... It's easy.  

Popover Pie with Ham and Peas

Total time: 45 minutes
   This is a colorful pie, with the bright green peas and red pimento. I sautéed the filling briefly - to tenderize the onion and defrost the peas.
