Use popover pans for higher, airier popovers. (Muffin pans work too, but leave every other cup unfilled so heat circulates.)

How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk milk and eggs, then whisk in flour, salt, pepper, and sage. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Let stand 1 hour.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 450° at least 30 minutes before baking. Divide butter among 12 popover cups. Put pans in oven 2 minutes to melt butter. Set a rimmed baking sheet on rack beneath to catch any dripping butter as popovers rise.

Step 3

Stir batter and ladle into cups. Bake 10 minutes. Without opening oven, reduce heat to 375° and bake until popovers are puffed and golden, about 15 minutes more. Top each with a large pinch of remaining cheese and return to oven to melt cheese, 5 minutes.

Step 4

Free popovers from pan by running a thin metal spatula around edge; lift from bottom.

Step 5

This was my first try at making popovers. It was easy to make and I used the popover pans. I've made this popover for Christmas dinner and it was the most popular item among all of my 11 guests. I had one leftover and my guests started bribing me for that last one. I got an offer from taking me out to dinner to taking me shopping for whatever I wanted. It was the topic of our conversation and laughter as well as a good meal.

I made these for a party and they were a hit! Easy to make, a little time consuming to assemble everything, wait for the dough to rise, cook, etc. Few ingredients. I will make these again for Christmas dinner this year. It was my first attempt at Popovers. I did use a King Arthur popover pan as I was told they come out different than if making in a cupcake pan.
