Swiss - Roquefort Popovers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

This recipe is from website Recipes Wiki and was posted by Maintenance script. I have posted it here for the ZWT-7 tour of Switzerland. Most recipes call for pricking popovers as soon as they come out of the oven to prevent them from becoming soggy. These light and lacy popovers won’t need to be pricked. Use 2 mini-muffin pans with a nonstick finish so the popovers are easily freed from the cups. You can reheat them but do not refrigerate them or they will become very soggy.

I've never had popovers, but I like make making Yorkshire puddings and these were extremely similar; they are just as easy to make, and just as light and fluffy. I enjoyed the small amount of blue cheese- just a tiny bit goes a long way. Instead of making 24 popovers, I kept the amount of batter the same and made 12 larger ones. They were perfect.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Position a rack in the lower third of an oven and preheat to 450 °F.
  2. Generously brush two 12-cup mini-muffin pans with vegetable oil.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, white pepper and parsley.
  4. In a large measuring cup, whisk together the milk, eggs and butter.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk together until just combined, a few lumps may remain.
  6. Now pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups to within about 1/4 inch of the rim.
  7. Place 1 tsp crumbled Blue Cheese in the center of each filled cup and bake for 10 minutes, making sure not to open the oven door during this time.
  8. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 °F and continue to bake until the popovers are brown and crusty and fully puffed, 8 to 10 minutes more.
  9. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately transfer the popovers to a napkin-lined bowl or warmed platter and serve immediately or let cool on wire racks for 2 hours, then reheat in a 350 °F oven for 10 minutes.
