Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Resting Time: 5 minutes
Puffy and light with a distinct cheddar and chive flavor, these easy popovers can be made in the blender. No yeast, no kneading and no rising. Ready in about 40 minutes.
- 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.
