How to impress everyone at Thanksgiving

Popovers with Gruyere cheese. Psst...don't worry; it's easy!

They have a lot going for them:

1) They are delicious
2) Easy to make
3) Can be made ahead of time

Recipe after the Jump!

We decided to 'upgrade' our standard Popovers, after my Mom saw an article about a BLT Steak Restaurant that serves Popovers with Gruyere cheese baked on top. Now what about that doesn't sound fabulous?

We tried it & are never looking back!


4 cups of warm milk
8 eggs
4 cups flour
1- 1/2 Tbs salt
2 1/2 cups grated Gruyere cheese


preheat oven to 350 degrees

Whisk eggs (we used a Kitchen Aid mixer on low during this entire process).  Warm milk in a saucepan & slowly add to the egg mixture. Measure the flour & sift into the mixture. Add salt.  The batter can be refrigerated over night. 

Spray non-stick vegetable spray (like Pam) in the baking pan to prevent sticking. Pour batter into cups, filling until about 3/4 full. Add grated Gruyere cheese on top of mixture (about 2 1/2 Tbs each).

Bake in oven for about 15 minutes. Rotate pan a half a turn & continue to bake until golden brown (about 40 minutes).

Makes 12

Bring to dinner party, impress family/friends, etc.
