These are so easy to make! And they're cheap too! I added some garlic salt to the mix and then topped it with a little bit of shredded cheese before I baked it. They turned out soooooo delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Adjust the oven rack to the lower third of the oven; preheat the oven to 400°. Grease each popover cup generously with softened butter or solid vegetable shortening.
  2. Combine the eggs, milk, melted butter, flour and salt in a blender or food processor; process for about 40 seconds. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl a couple of times and blend until the mixture is completely smooth.
  3. To make by hand, whisk together the eggs, milk and butter in a large bowl. Add the flour and salt and beat until very smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into the greased cups, filling them half to two-thirds full. Bake until the popovers are puffed and golden brown, 35-40 minutes. Do not open the oven door during baking or the popovers will collapse.
