Cheddar Chive Popovers + A Giveaway

Cheddar Chive Popovers

I’ve been on the road too much.

What? Did I really just say that? I never expected to hear those words come out of my mouth. But they did. And that’s just how I currently feel.

Cheddar Chive Popovers I’ve been on and off the road for the last 2 months and I’m wiped out. Flying here and there and talking all about Absolutely Avocados and how every single person should probably own a copy because it’s good for their well being. But I miss being home. I miss sleeping in my own bed. I miss eating dinner with my husband every night. I miss my little cat who probably has no idea that I’m gone and prefers it when I am because she totally likes Thomas better. And I miss the act of leisurely cooking. The act of taking time to wake up, hang out in bed watching some National Geographic show on penguins or something, and then making my way to the kitchen a bit later to whip up some brunch for me and my honey. (hunny? I don’t know which it is. Mom – I’m sure I’ll get a text from you clearing this all up shortly)

One weekend recently, when I actually was home, I made these seriously freaking delicious Cheddar Chive Popovers for breakfast. The recipe comes from one of my newest cookbook additions Pancakes: 72 Sweet and Savory Recipes for the Perfect Stack from Adrianna of A Cozy Kitchen.

The book is packed to the brim with sweet and savory ideas for pancakes. And while I know popovers aren’t a traditional pancake, it’s one of my favorite recipes from the book. Adrianna knows her pancakes. This girl could whip up a mean brunch with her eyes closed and impress any guest. Each recipe in the book looks better than the last (I mean how is that even possible) and you suddenly feel the need to eat pancakes in every way shape or form for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.

This book has it all. From basic buttermilk pancakes to german apple popovers to smoked gouda sweet potato latkes, to curried cauliflower fritters, I mean the possibilites are endless.

I had the hardest time choosing what to make first. So luckily my facebook fans picked for me. Hands down the Cheddar Chive Popovers won. People were pumped, and so was I.

These popovers are not only delicious, but they are filled with chives and freshly grated cheddar cheese. 2 of my most favorite things in life. Plus they are crazy impressive looking when they first come out of the oven and are literally puffed up so high. If we’re friends over on instagram you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Omg they are fun. You should make them. And if you’re a pancake lover like myself, you’re going to need this book!

And because it’s Monday. And we haven’t given anything away in ages. And I ate a boat load of popovers. And yesterday was Fathers Day, and I know some of you still need to get a gift for dad, I’m giving away 2 copes of Pancakes: 72 Sweet and Savory Recipes for the Perfect Stack.

All you’ve got to do is leave a comment here letting me know your all time FAVORITE pancake. I’ll pick a winner on Friday (June 21st and ship out your books before I leave for surprise vacation.) Ready set go!

Congratulations Jennifer Paine and and Stephie on winning the books! Just messaged ya both for your mailing address :)

Cheddar Chive Popovers + A Giveaway

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, minced
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar, finely grated

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously coat a muffin pan with the vegetable oil or spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour and salt. In a measuring cup, measure out milk, add the eggs, and beat until combined.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until nearly smooth. The batter will be thin with a few lumps. Fold in ½ cup of the cheddar cheese and the chives. If you’d like, you can transfer the batter to a large measuring cup or bowl with a spout; this will make it easier to pour the batter into the muffin wells.
  4. Preheat the muffin pan in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the hot pan and carefully pour the batter into each well, filling them a little more than halfway. Top with the remaining ½ cup cheddar cheese. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until tall, puffed, and golden brown.

  1. I like a buttermilk pancake. I LOVE pancakes so much that I usually eat them plain w/out syrup, berries, etc. BUT I won’t turn my head at a toffee or granola pancake. Yum.

  2. Good old buttermilk pancakes would have to top the list, b/c I haven’t had a lot of variety to this point! June 21st will be our 33rd anniversary, so it’s about time I get a little adventurous with pancakes, don’t ya think?

  3. Fresh blueberry buttermilk pancakes with homemade maple syrup. I also like to make plain buttermilk pancakes, zest them with some orange peeling, and sprinkle some powdered sugar on top. Oh and drizzled lightly with syrup. :)

  4. Plain buttermilk pancakes with a little lemon are my favorite, but I like every kind of pancake I’ve tried. Those look amazing.

  5. Blueberry pancakes have always been my favorite! I’m getting hungry just thinking about them.

    The popovers look delicious – I can’t wait to try them!

  6. My husband makes the most delicious buttermilk pancakes ever! Thanks for the chance to win. I am sure my husband (our pancake maker) would love this book & me too!

  7. Mmmm… my all time favourite are buttermilk pancakes!
    And this last weekend I made lemon poppy seeds pancakes and were really good, too!

  8. Gotta go with Blueberry! The addition of fruit negates the high calories & unhealthy properties!! (or so I tell myself)

    • Hey Jennifer!!! Congrats – I just picked ya as one of the winners for this contest! Shoot me an email with your mailing address and I’ll get the book out to you!

  9. My vote goes for my Dad’s Apple Spice but my boys would save the ones their Dad makes with mini-m&ms….

    Can’t wait to hear all about your trip!

  10. I like all pancakes like butter pecan but my favorite are pineapple with coconut and mango syrup. I will try these popovers this weekend.
    Is there a final clue for vacation? Can’t wait to find out where you are going this year.

  11. There’s a pancake house in Fremont, CA that has the best pancakes with a blueberry compote that is to die for and these are my favorites!

  12. My favorite pancake isn’t about flavor, it’s about weather! As soon as there is a measurable amount of snow on the ground I absolutely MUST have pancakes for breakfast. I have no clue why, but I do it every year.

  13. Any kind of pancake that has chocolate or chocolate chips in it. AMAZing! I just saw one for peanut butter and chocolate. I will have to try that next!

  14. I love to make the Zeppelin pancakes from Marion Cunningham’s The Breakfast Book.

    Many thanks for the opportunity!
    joan

  15. i like to add fresh diced cherries or gooseberries from my trees and shrubs when they’re ready to the batter, so good!

  16. I just made chocolate pancakes for Father’s Day and added chocolate chips in them. They were awesome. They tasted like the chocolate muffins from Costco….yum!!!

    • Hey Stephie! Congrats – I just picked ya as one of the winners for this contest! Shoot me an email with your mailing address and I’ll get the book out to you!

  17. Gaby – I have THREE FAVORITE pancakes: Kaiserschmarrn (made with craisins and walnuts and served with warm home made applesauce), cottage cheese pancakes (light, refreshing and low in calories) served with fresh fruit in season, AND sourdough pancakes made from starter (that you have to activate the day before) and served with butter and real Vermont Maple Syrup. (The sourdough batter makes WONDERFUL light and crispy waffles….. If you want any recipes please let me know….

  18. I know this is bad, but I have never been able to make these at home…IHOP used to make a really good pancake that had cream of wheat in it. I know, I know, it sounds disgusting, but they were darn good!

  19. I’m the plain-jane-buttermilk-pancake-kind-of-girl! That’s why I need this book so that I can do something more than jam and maple syrup! =)

  20. My absolutely favorite pancakes are Martha Stewart’s Basic Pancake. So simple and so easily adaptable. Throw in some white chocolate chips and top with strawberries and whipped cream. Mix in fresh blueberries. Mash in a banana (or three). So, so delicious.

  21. I USED TO EAT PLAIN PANCAKES FOR YEARS. I WAS WATCHING T.V. A FEW YEARS AGO AND THEY WERE MAKING FRENCH TOAST WITH ORANGE RINDS AND VANILLA. I NEVER THOUGHT OF USING OTHER INGREDIENTS IN FRENCH TOAST. I THEN THOUGHT IF YOU CAN USE THESE INGREDIENTS IN FRENCH TOAST WHY NOT PANCAKES, MY PANCAKES HAVE NEVER BEEN THE SAME. I ADD CHOCOLATE CHIPS, WALNUTS, ORANGE RINDS, VANILLA, CINAMMON, NUTMEG, ETC… WHAT EVER I’M IN THE MOOD FOR THAT MORNING PLUS, EVER SINCE THAT DAY I HAVEN’T EATEN A PLAIN PANCAKES. I WOULD LOVE THE WIN THIS BOOK SO IT CAN GIVE ME MORE IDEAS ON HOW TO PERFECT MY PANCAKES.

  22. I love potato pancakes! So good the day after thanksgiving with regular mashed potatoes or sweet potato casserole.
