There is nothing like a warm popover straight out of the oven: I love the airy hallow center, steaming with warmth and screaming for a pat of butter. It is the perfect accompaniment to a warm winter meal. Popovers are a step up from boring dinner rolls. They look fantastic, taste delicious, and are surprisingly easy to make.

For this version, I added a twist: cheddar cheese and fresh chives. I love the savory flavor these ingredients add to an already perfect recipe.
