Sunny Side UP!

pastry from BalthazarA couple of friends and I got up early Saturday to catch a morning train to Southampton.  If you’ve done the ride, you know that snacks and beverages greatly improve the 2.5 hours spent cruising along the LIRR.  I packed a chilled bottle of prosecco, picked up a carton of OJ, brought some plastic cups and made a pit stop at Balthazar boulangerie on the way.  They have a killer ham and cheese croissant, but my new favorite was this “sunny side up popover.”  Flaky and light, with delicate pastry cream holding a perfectly sweet apricot in the middle.  It looked like a sunny side up egg, but tasted like buttery fruity deliciousness.
