  • 3 cup Milk
  • 3 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher salt
  • 6 Eggs
  • 6 ounces Gruy√®re cheese grated


  • Preheat oven to 400°F with a 6-cup popover pan in the bottom third of an oven.
  • In a saucepan over medium high heat warm the milk until you begin to see small bubbles around the edges.
  • Combine the flour and salt and run it through a sieve to make it extra fine. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk the eggs until they are frothy.
  • Remove the milk from the heat and slowly pour it into the egg mixture, whisking continuously. Be careful that you don't go to fast and cook the eggs!
  • Once the milk and eggs are combined add the flour mixture, whisking it until there are no lumps and the mixture is smooth.
  • Remove the popover pan from the oven, spray with nonstick spray and fill each cup 3/4 full of batter.
  • Top the batter in each cup with 1/2 ounce of Gruyere cheese.
  • Place the pan back in the oven with a baking sheet beneath it on the rack below to catch any drips, and bake for 15 minutes before rotating the pan 180 degrees.
  • After you have rotated the pan do not open the oven again until the baking is complete 30 minutes more.
  • Once the popovers are done remove them from the oven, empty them into a bread basket and serve immediately.
  • Wipe out the popover cups, place the popover pan back in the oven to heat for 5-10 minutes then follow steps 7-11.
  • Enjoy!
