  • popover pan (optional)


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/2 scant cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 scant teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon chives minced
  • 1/2 cup white cheddar cheese finely shredded


  • Prehet the oven to 450°. Spray a popover pan liberally with vegetable spray -- cover the interior and around the top. (Can also use muffin tins).
  • To a blender add the eggs, milk flour, salt and butter IN THAT ORDER. Blend for 15 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the blender with a spatula and blend for an additional 15 seconds until combined.
  • Add the cheddar cheese and chives and blend until just mixed.
  • Fill the popover tins 2/3 full with batter and put into the hot oven. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to 350° and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Remove the popovers from the oven and use a sharp knife to prick the dome of each muffin to allow steam to escape. Let the muffins rest in the popover tin for 5 minutes before turning them out onto a wire rack.
  • Serve warm with butter.
