Driving home from a weekend out of town, we stopped at a roadside stall and picked up some fresh vegetables. We also had our weekly delivery of local produce to utilize, so my husband started on a wonderful, aromatic, vegetable laden soup.
I found this fun, flavorful popover recipe, which I thought would go well with the soup, and was very quick to make. However, my baking attempts were interrupted as my husband called out to our neighbors, who were enjoying an evening walk, and invited them in for a glass of wine. I was very happy to put the popovers on hold and visit – the lovely, spontaneous, mutual interruption made our evening so much richer and more pleasant.
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded, sharp cheddar cheese
3 green onions, trimmed and chopped
Heat oven to 450F.
Coat 8 cups of a popover or standard muffin pan with cooking spray.
In a bowl, whisk together flour and salt. In a second bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add to flour mixture, stir just until blended. Fold in cheese and green onions.
Fill prepared cups about 3/4 full, about 1/3 cup batter in each.
Bake for 15 minutes, reduce oven temperature to 350F and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until browned and puffed.
Remove popovers from oven and immediately remove from pan.
