Herb and Cheese Popovers


Total Time:



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!

    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

    I don’t have a popover pan. If I use a standard muffin tin how should I adjust the cook time?
