Savory Breakfast Popovers

Prep: 25 minutes
Bake: 30 minutes • Makes: 6 popovers

1 tablespoon melted unsalted butter plus additional softened butter for greasing cups
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus additional for dusting cups
3 large eggs, room temperature
1-1/2 cups whole milk, room temperature
6 slices thick-cut smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled
1-1/4 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

1.Place oven rack in lowest position; preheat oven to 450°. Grease 6 standard popover tin cups with butter. Lightly dust bottom and sides of cups with flour, tapping to evenly coat cups; shake out excess flour.

2.In large bowl, lightly whisk eggs; whisk in milk until frothy. Whisk in bacon, cheese, rosemary, salt, pepper and melted butter until combined. Gradually sift flour into egg mixture, whisking just until combined; do not over mix. Immediately spoon batter into the prepared cups, filling cups about 3/4 full.

3.Bake popovers on bottom rack 15 minutes; reduce temperature to 350°. Bake 15 minutes longer or until popovers are golden brown and sides firm. Serve immediately.

Chef Tip:
If not serving immediately, poke a small hole in the side of each popover to release some of the steam to retain their shape.
