Bacon Cheese Popovers

Bacon? Goood.
Cheese? Gooood.
Popover? Goooooood.

(anyone else a Friends fan? anyone? Joey...thanksgiving...Rachel's trifle??)

Anyway, this is delicious. It's technically a breakfast recipe, but I think it's good anytime. We made these once for a lazy Sunday breakfast, and then had them last week for dinner, with a vegetable and fruit salad. And double bonus, they make good leftovers.

You'll need:
8-10 slices bacon
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese (because we all grate by hand, right? none of that icky pre-shredded)
1 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees

If it's not already cooked, cook your bacon. (I prefer to fry it, but do the microwave or oven if that's your preference.) Then chop/dice it into small pieces. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the salt and flour.
In a medium sized bowl, stir together the milk, 2 eggs, and melted butter. Pour the egg mixture into the flour and stir together until smooth.

Grease a 12 cup muffin pan with butter. (Or spray with pam, if that's how you roll.)
Spoon about 1 tbsp of diced bacon into each muffin cup.
Add about 1 1/2 tbsp of the grated cheese into each muffin cup.

Then spoon the egg mixture in the muffin cups, doing your best to divide it evenly among the 12.
It'll look a bit watery, but no worries. Deliciousness awaits you!

Bake for 15 minutes at 450 degrees, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Continue baking for another 15 minutes. During baking, don't open the oven at all! While baking, your popovers will pop up and rise, and opening the oven will cause them to fall.
Cool for just a moment, and serve warm! These were a hit with my hubs, with my kiddos, and to a few brunches and breakfasts I've brought them to.

I really enjoy these left over as well. They reheat great in the microwave or the toaster oven.

I've made these many times now with cheddar and bacon, but I'd really like to try other combinations. I could see using crumbled sausage or diced ham working really well. Also, different cheeses would be fabulous; like gouda, greyere, parmsean, etc.
Besides the 30 minutes in the oven, the popovers come together really quickly if you've already cooked your bacon and shredded your cheese.



  1. I love popovers but I never make them! I know my husband would love these, maybe I'll give them a try :)

  2. Heavenly! And I love the Friends reference. That was a funny episode!

  3. Making them for dinner right now! Thanks for the recipe!!

  4. They were DELICIOUS and a hit with the whole family!!

  5. Just tried those this morning for a special breakfast for Kyle...he loved them!! So good! When he saw them he said that they looked kind of like the souffles at Panera, but after we ate them he said they were way better! Thanks for the great recipe!

  6. I must try this recipe gluten free, I'm wondering if I can adapt it with pancake mix. I'd love it if you would take a minute and stop by my blog and leave a comment, I'm looking for advice from other mom's for new mom's to add to a devotional.
