Thyme and Parmesan Popovers

Oh la la these are good! I’ve never made popovers and I can’t remember eating too many of them in my life; but now, this void has been filled. These are super easy to make with fantastic results. I may add a little less thyme next time (oh! thyme, time…get it? Too obvious?). If you’re a thyme-lover, then one tablespoon is perfect for you!

I also imagine popovers are pretty versatile in terms of what ingredients to add and what time of day you could eat them. If you added cinnamon, sugar and raisins, you’ve got a morning popover. Add some onions and garlic and you’ve got a variation on dinner rolls. So explore and let me know how it turns out!

thyme and parmesan popovers

Source: Foodista
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp. fresh cracked pepper
1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
1 T. dried thyme
7 tsp. of melted butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
1. Place a regular muffin tin (or a popover tin, if you have one) in the oven for 10 minutes.
2. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs and milk
3. In a separate, large bowl, mix the flour, salt, pepper, Parmesan and thyme
4. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined and smooth.
5. After the initial 10 minutes, remove the muffin pan from the oven and place 1 teaspoon of melted butter into 7 muffin tins
6. Quickly pour in the batter into the tins about 3/4 of the way. Cook for 10 minutes.
7. Reduce heat to 350 degrees, but do not open the oven. Cook for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the popovers are golden brown.
8. Serve immediately!


NOTE: These make for fantastic sandwiches the next day. Slice and toast the popovers, add some mustard and turkey, and you’ve got yourself a tasty, herby turkey sandwich.

    yum! i like the idea of trying different kinds of ingredients for different meals. is the butter just to keep them from sticking to the pan? could you sub no-stick spray?

  2. Emily says:

    Yeah definitely! I think the butter adds a little flavor but also helps from sticking. Try the spray and let me know how it turns out. I’m sure it’ll be great!

    We had cheddar popovers on Christmas–they do satisfy, don’t they?

    I think I’d be inclined to keep the butter but not eat them very often…..

    Happy new year………

    Oh, your poor popevers—they done fall down! When I was just starting out, they did this to me too. With a little more finesse and experience, they’ll stay popped up and not fall. Don’t beat the eggs or batter too much is a great tip I learned…!
