Let’s be real for a second… I’m ALL about a popover. Is there anything better than Herb and Cheese Popovers? Not really!
A few weeks back we made homemade rolls for the Thanksgiving table. They were incredible but they take 3 hours to rise and no one really has time for that. Popovers on the other hand take almost no time to throw together and then bake up to perfection and make for an excellent snack, side dish, leftover breakfast or even dessert if you’re into a savory dessert like me. It’s a handful of pantry staples like butter, eggs, milk, flour, salt, Italian seasoning and the most important part of any popover…. Parrano cheese.
It’s always about the cheese. Nutty and almost gouda like, Parrano really bring a whole new level of flavor to these popovers that you won’t want to miss!
AND… if you’ve ever worried about making popovers and then they fall while you’re getting the rest of dinner ready…. fear not! The baking method for these ensures that they’ll always be “popped” and you won’t have any sad popovers on your table!
Make them this holiday season and enjoy!
Herb and Cheese Popovers
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
- 6 eggs lightly beaten
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoons salt
- ½ cup shredded Parrano Cheese
- 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
- Preheat an oven to 425°F. Pour 1/2 tsp. of the melted butter into each 6-cup popover pan. Put in the oven for 4 minutes to heat the pan.
- In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk, then whisk in 2 Tbs. of the melted butter.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt, then whisk in the egg mixture. Whisk vigorously until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the shredded Parrano cheese and Italian seasoning and mix to combine. Divide the batter among the prepared cups and bake for 30-35 minutes until a rich brown. DON’T PEEK while baking. Remove from the oven and invert the pan onto a wire rack.
- Serve immediately.

I’m crazy about popovers and these look absolutely stunning and delicious, Gaby!
I can’t wait to make them! xo
What is it about popovers?! They are so addictive!! My whole family has loved them for YEARS! And everything is better with cheeeeeeese! 😉
Savory popovers! I’m in love!
Can you use cupcake pans instead? Or does it have to be specifically pop over pans? Thanks!
probably! I haven’t tried it but I bet it would work. They’ll be a bit more shallow but I’m sure still delish
Ooh, I love popovers and I was hoping to find a new flavorful recipe for them. I can’t wait to try these! Thank you for sharing!
how many does this make and can I use muffin tins?
roughly 12 and yes!
I don’t have a popover pan. If I use a standard muffin tin how should I adjust the cook time?
Can’t wait to try these! Can they be made earlier in the morning and put back in the oven to warm up right before serving guests? If yes, what temp would you warm them?
they will de-puff so won’t be as WOW but still delish
