Cheddar Chive Popovers
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ¼ cup melted butter (or rendered beef fat)
  • ⅓ cup grated cheese
  • 1 bunch of chives, snipped
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Place eggs, milk, butter, seasonings and and flour in a blender and blend until smooth.*
  3. Grease popover or muffin pan & put in oven for a few minutes.
  4. Remove and spoon in about a teaspoon of butter or other fat, fill each cup about ½ to ⅔rds full, then top with about ½ tsp. of the grated cheese & chives.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes at 450, then reduce to 350 for another 10 minutes, or until brown on top.
  6. This will make 6 popovers using the popover pan or 12 in a muffin pan.
Can be whisked together if you don't have a blender. Beef fat from the bottom of the roasting pan can (and should) be substituted for the melted butter. Do not open oven door while baking, this will deflate the popovers and will make them look like nasty little hockey pucks.
