Herbed Popovers With Monterey Jack Cheese

baked popovers

Quick breads are just that “quick”. Quick to make and quick to bake. They are made with chemical leavening agents, principally baking soda and baking powder.

Popovers, however, are solely dependent on eggs as a leavener.

With only a few basic ingredients and no yeast, these delicious herbed popovers are crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside.

You will need a special popover pan to make these:

Herbed Popovers with Monterey Jack Cheese

Makes 12

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 3 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (3/4 cup)

Preheat oven to 400F.

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth (always put in wet ingredients first).

popover batter

Spray pans with nonstick spray. Fill each of the muffin tins about 3/4 full with the batter. Top with the grated Monterey jack cheese.
