Cheddar Green Onion Popovers


Category :

Little individual servings of goodness. If you've never had (or made) popovers I suggest you do it now. This savory version is a perfect pairing as a side to almost any meal. I describe the texture as being similar to that of a crepe... silky, smooth, egg-dominating feel and taste. The only resemblance to a muffin being its size and shape. High in protein (8 grams per popover) as eggs and milk are the two major ingredients. Save leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge and reheat individually for 15 seconds in the microwave for a yummy snack.

Cheddar Green Onion Popovers

1 1/3 cups 1% low-fat milk (I used nonfat because it's what I had in my fridge)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 large eggs
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions

Preheat oven to 450. Lightly spray 12 muffin cups (or popover pan) with cooking spray.

Combine milk, flour, eggs and salt in blender; blend until smooth. Pour into large bowl (preferably with a pouring spout.) Stir in 1 cup cheddar and the green onions. Pour into muffin tin, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar.

Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temp to 375 and bake until golden brown (about 5 minutes more.) Serve hot.

*note: typically as popovers bake, they will rise beyond the top of their muffin cups and then "fall in" on themselves as they continue to bake and cool... the "popover" effect. However, mine didn't rise as much as the typical popover but still turned out wonderfully delicious...*
