Easy No-yeast Cheesy Popovers!

“Cooking is simply a huge and often very fun puzzle of piecing together techniques with different ingredients. Once you know your basics, the world is your oyster (or your clam, your chicken thigh, block of tofu—whatever makes you happy).” – Julia Turshen

I thought this quote was perfect for today’s recipe! You can interchange ingredients so easily and it will turn out perfect every time.

This recipe has always been a family favorite and it is so easy & quick to throw together. No waiting for dough to rise. I’ve altered the recipe a bit from the original in todays recipe.

1. In a medium bowl whisk together egg & milk until well blended.

2. Add flour and seasoned garlic salt; stir just until mixed.


3. Stir just until mixed.

4. Stir in cheese and any other ingredients you chose!

5. Fill prepared cups about 3/4 way full– about 1/3 c of the batter batter

Bake for 15 minutes.  Reduce oven temp to 350; bake for 10-15 more minutes or until browned & puffed.  Do not open the oven door until the end of baking time or popovers will collapse!!!!

Remove popovers from the oven and immediately remove from the pan.  Pierce sides once with a knife to release steam.  Serve warm with butter.

Top with a dab of butter and serve warm!

Pro Tip: When interchanging ingredients, always make sure they all total the same amount as in the original recipe. For example, the recipe calls for one type of cheese, if you want to add others, cut each one’s quantity to still equal one cup. Ie. ⅓ cup parmesan, ⅓ cup feta, & ⅓ cup of romano- 3 cheese but they still total 1 cup. Do this with any meat and/or veggie additions or changes as well.
