 Bacon Parmesan Popovers
This recipe proves that simple ingredients oftentimes result in the best-tasting dishes. These popovers are a nice change from ordinary toast or muffins. —Donna Gaston, Coplay, Pennsylvania

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 bacon strips, diced

  • add to egg mixture and mix well. Cover and let stand at room
  • temperature for 45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 450°. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium
  • heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels to
  • drain. Grease cups of a popover pan well with some of the bacon
  • drippings; set aside. Stir bacon into batter; fill prepared cups
  • two-thirds full.
  • Bake 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° (do not open oven door).

  • underbake).

Bacon Parmesan Popovers (continued)

Editor's Note: You may use greased muffin tins instead of a popover pan. Fill every other cup two-thirds full with batter to avoid crowding the popovers; fill remaining cups with water. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes and 350° for 10 minutes. Yield: 9 popovers.
