1 Tbsp. butter plus extra for greasing
3 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
¾ tsp. salt
1 cup milk
¾ cup cheddar cheese freshly grated
¼ cup chives, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and thoroughly grease your popover pan. Melt the tablespoon of butter in your bowl and set it aside to cool slightly. Break the eggs into the same bowl (with the butter) and whisk gently. Then whisk in the flour, salt and milk until just barely blended; a few lumps are fine.
Add the cheddar cheese and chives and gently fold the cheese and chives into the batter using a rubber spatula. Don’t overmix.
Fill the cups 2/3 full (3/4 full for large popovers) and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 15 minutes. (Do not open the oven, or it could cause them to collapse.) When they are brown and crusty, remove them from the oven and make a small slit in their sides with a sharp knife. Serve immediately.
