Light, airy, cheese filled popovers are the savory bread rolls you need to make now.
By Mary Ann Dwyer
I got the idea for today’s recipe, Black Pepper and Parmesan Popovers, from my good friend Kristen. This summer when we were together she brought up popovers. She remembered when she was a kid how she used to go to a little place for lunch with her mother and her aunt and they used to eat popovers with honey. I hadn’t had a popover in years. So I had to make popovers!
Have you guys ever tried a popover? If you haven’t, a popover is somewhat of a roll. It’s hollow, and it’s made from egg batter, and it’s similar to Yorkshire pudding. It’s light and airy, and so delicious, and it can be either sweet or savory. I was in the mood for savory, so parmesan and black pepper fit the bill. Just cheesy enough, with a little peppery spice. These are so easy to make, and so fun to watch them bake in the oven. Do not, I repeat, do not open the oven door while they are baking, unless you want flat popovers! Resist the temptation, and just turn on the oven light and watch! If you don’t have a popover pan you can use a standard 12-cup muffin tin with 2 1/2 wide x 1 1/2 deep wells.Print
