This was a GREAT recipe, thank you very much for sharing. I love popovers, and this is the only recipe I've found that allows the addition of cheese and then actually "pops over". I added about 1/2 tsp melted butter to each of my 6 non-stick popover cups, and I used about 1 tsp of smoked cheddar in each. They were delicious! Tip - promptly remove the popovers from the pan after baking, to avoid moisture building up in the pan, causing your popovers to get soggy - then poke a hole in each one to release the steam. The popovers will be crisp on the outside and moist (but not wet) on the inside. Perfection!
