Cheese Popovers

Simple to make and wonderful with soup!


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease 12 small ramekins or popover tins.
  2. Melt butter in small glass bowl in microwave.
  3. Beat eggs with electric mixer until blended, then beat in milk and melted butter.
  4. Sift together flour, salt and paprika, then beat into egg mixture. Stir in the cheese.
  5. Fill prepared pans half-full with batter. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until golden. Do not open the oven door during baking or the popovers will fall.
