Blue Cheese Mini Popovers

"I was looking for a recipe to compliment a lighter apricot-balsamic roast chicken dish and stumbled onto these from the William Sonoma website and made a few minor adjustments. I was pleasantly surprised that not only did I like them, but DH (not a huge fan of blue cheese) ate 3 of them straight out of the oven. They are a nice treat from the usual biscuits or rolls."

Ready In:
12 mini popovers




  • Position a rack in the lower third of an oven and preheat to 450°F.
  • Generously one 12-cup mini-muffin pan/mini popover tin with vegetable oil. (*If using a mini-muffin tin, make absolutely sure it is a quality non-stick pan or your popovers will not release after baking)
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, white pepper and parsley.
  • In a large measuring cup, whisk together the milk, eggs and butter.
  • Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk together until just combined (don’t worry if a few lumps remain).
  • Pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups to within about 1/4 inch of the rim (about 1 1/2 Tbs. each).
  • Place 1 - 1.5 teaspoons crumbled cheese in the center of each filled cup.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. (Do not open the oven door during this time.)
  • 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.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately transfer the popovers to a napkin-lined bowl or warmed platter. (*Note" No pricking required).
  • You can also let these cool on wire racks for up to 2 hours, then reheat in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes.

Well, I guess you might say it's now AKillian24.5 - as we are expecting late this year. A very welcomed surprise, this will be our first child (of the non-fur variety) and we couldn't be more excited. As I'm still working full time and prepping for life's next chapter, I've been cooking less frequently and offline a bit more than usual. I still love to pop into CC to visit the many people I consider friends. Have a wonderful holiday season!
