I think this is my favorite recipe I have added to my cookbook since using recipezaar. These are so easy to make and the ingredients are items that I always have on hand in my pantry. I served these at a party and I knew several of my family members did not care for blue cheese(how is that possible?)so I made 2 batches one with blue cheese and the other with sundried tomato and basil seasoned feta. Those were also very good. FYI pampered chef makes a 24 tin mini muffin pan that is great for this recipe!

These deserve 5 plus stars- I made them in a tiny muffin tin, 1/2 recipe made 24, just one bite size. Used Danish Bleu cheese and put a 1/2" cube in each popover. I had the wet & dry ingredients all ready to mix and the cheese ready, oven preheated. Then at 11:20 mixed the ingredients popped them in the oven and served them piping hot & crispy along with the New Years toast of champagne. They are wonderful with bubbly. Thanks Mimi these may become a tradition

Easy, and delicious! I used cooking spray and forgot to add the melted butter and they still came out perfectly. A few tips from a popover master: make sure that your oven is HOT. Preheat your muffin pans by putting them in the stove while it preheats. Pull them out just when you are ready to fill them. Make sure your ingredients are room temp or warmer. Mix up your ingredients and pour into the hot pans immediately. Put the popovers on a rack on the bottom third of the oven and put a baking pan on a rack on the top third. This will keep them from burning. King Arthur Flour has a great blog for making these on their site. Trick is warm ingredients, hot pan, hot oven. You can't fail! Thanks for the recipe Mimi!

I'm not quite sure how these were suppose to turn out, but I'm sure what I ended up with wasn't it. Even though I greased my pan, the popovers stuck terribly ... okay, they burned to my pan. I had to dig them out with a spoon. Maybe next time I'll try cooking spray. The flavor was pretty bland and the texture somewhat gummy. Sad but true, this was not a good recipe for me.

great taste and very unique. I served these for Christmas this year and everyone seemed to really enjoy them. Only issue is that they were not light and airy in a popover sense. They were more dense and compact than I had hoped for. Will try again though. Thanks!

Wow...these were great! I had to make a few adjustments though. First, I don't have a popover pan so I used 4 tbsp spooned into a regular muffin pan. Second, I had to use 1 tbsp dry parsley instead of fresh. Also, I used regular butter and omitted the salt. I live overseas (military) so I was able to use Bavarian Blue Cheese. My "popovers" were large but they were sooo delicious. We served them at room temperature because its my husband's preference. So, even if you don't have a popover pan... make these! They are great!
