    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!

    The kids loved the cheesy popovers!!! I used a regular cupcake/muffin pan for smaller sized popovers and baked for 30 mins, but still they came out a good size. Served with pasta! Will make again and again!

    Impressive, yummy treats! I would've never guessed how easy these are to make and yet look so elegant. I took some shortcuts and also skinnied mine up some, and they still turned out luscious. First, I used my blender to mix the ingredients, and baked them in my jumbo muffin pan since I don't have a popover pan. I used skim milk, Smart Balance Light margarine and reduced fat cheddar cheese. Put these on your table and watch your guests' jaws drop! Thanks Smurfetta!

    Excellent! I added some fresh, diced garlic chives from the herb garden. Yum.

    Wow. What a great and easy recipe! Although mine were done after 45 min


In my world a recipe is a guideline to cooking and can be altered to suit one's taste. I collect cookbooks for a hobby and have made at least one recipe from each one. And i am not that other Smurf.
