Cheesy Popovers

DSC_0089

Popovers are a great breakfast dish, or even a dinner side dish. They are baked with a mixture of cheddar cheese and herbs, and have a light spongy texture. These remind me of the cheesy biscuits they serve you at red lobster, but a lot less dense. And they’re extremely easy to whip up.

I liked the mini muffin pan idea because they take a lot less time to bake in the oven (18 minutes).

Any extra popovers can be stored in Tupperware in the fridge for up to 3 days, and reheated in the microwave for 45 seconds.
