 Most incredibly airy and crispy cheese popovers you could ever imagine. No popover pan is even required!


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, spoon & leveled
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • Cooking spray



  1. Place a 12-cup muffin pan in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and egg white. Add milk and butter. Then whisk in flour and salt. Lastly, add the cheddar cheese. The batter should be runny, similar to the consistency of heavy cream.

  3. Remove the heated muffin pan from the oven. Generously spray the inside of each cup with nonstick cooking spray, including the rim. Working quickly, fill each cup about half full with the batter.

  4. Immediately, place the pan on the lowest oven rack and bake until brown and crusty, about 20-25 minutes. Do not open the oven door during baking as this causes the popovers to deflate.

  5. Remove the popovers onto a cooling rack or platter. If popovers get stuck to the pan, run a knife around the edge, then remove. Pierce each popover with a sharp knife to release steam. Serve immediately.
