Gruyere Popovers

"From a local restaurant, BLT. They are just simply fabulous. I could eat just this with a glass of really good wine and forget their wonderful steaks."

Ready In:
1hr 5mins
18 popovers




  • Place a popover pan in the oven and heat until oven and pan reach 350. Gently warm the milk over low heat and set aside. Whisk the eggs until frothy and slowly whisk in the milk (so as not to cook the eggs). Set the mixture aside. Sift the flour with the salt. Slowly add the dry mixture and gently combine until almost smooth.
  • Once combined, remove the popover pan from the oven and spray with non-stick vegetable spray. While the batter is still slightly warm or at room temperature (not cool), fill each popover cup 3/4 full. Top each popover with 2 1/2 Tablespoons for grated gruyere.
  • Bake at 350 for 50 minutes, rotating pan half a turn after 14 minutes of baking.
  • Remove from oven, remove popovers from pan and serve immediately.
  • They serve with an herb butter and slightly coarse sea salt. Yum!

I live in the Phoenix area where the sun always shines. I love to cook and garden. I am a "gadget freak" and seem to buy every cooking tool that comes on the market. Currently, I'm playing with pressure cooker cuisine. If I could take a month off, I'd go to Italy and go to 3-4 different cooking schools. My favorite cookbook is "The New Professional Chef" by the Culinary Institute of America. The dog in the photo is Scout, who just happens to be the best dog in the world.
