Have you ever had a popover? For the longest time, I thought that they were these fancy pants dinner rolls. Then I checked out a recipe, just for laughs, and I realized how easy they are! Being the non-baker that I am, I thought that even I could make them. One of my dearest friends shared her mother’s recipe with me. These popovers were delicious! I am definitely making them again and again.
5 ingredients. That is all you need. Flour, eggs, salt, butter and milk. That’s easy enough for me. My friend suggested making the batter in the blender so it is easier to pour into the muffin tins. Duh! Such a great idea!
I also added a little cheese to the recipe so these popovers weren’t so plain. Some gruyere, shredded finely so it doesn’t weigh down the batter, adds just the right amount of flavor.
Then pour the batter into greased muffin tins, filling them about half way and bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.
Those popovers will come out golden brown and oh, so good! I put some of the shredded Gruyere on the top and allowed it to melt over the hot popovers. These will be your new “go-to” dinner roll. And you will look all fancy!
1 C. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1 C. milk
1 Tbsp. finely grated Gruyere (optional)
Sift together the flour salt. Add rest of ingredients and mix together (or put them in a blender) until smooth. The batter will be thin. Grease large muffin tins and pour in the batter filling about half way. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.
I sprinkled some more Gruyere over the top of the baked popovers and let it melt. Again, this is optional.
