Breakfast Popovers


An alternative to your usual breakfast, this ready to go bite is perfect not just for anyone who is in a rush, but also for people casually eating before work. What makes this popover great is that it can be baked in a variety of ways, or fillings, and is can be refrigerated to be eaten the next morning or prepped the night before, ready to be reheated as you are getting dressed for work.

Makes 12

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 35 Minutes


4 large eggs at room temperature

1 ½ cups of all purpose, unbleached flour

2 cups of milk at room temperature

1 tablespoon butter, for greasing up tray

3 breakfast sausage links (you can use any meat you like or make it completely vegetarian)

1 cup of shredded cheese (cheddar, gouda, Monterey, or any cheese of your choice)

1 ½ teaspoons of sea salt

½ teaspoon of pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a muffin or popover tray in the middle rack and let it heat up with the oven
  • While the oven is preheating, in a frying pan, cook the sausage or the filling you are going to use for the popovers. Once cooked, let it cook and dice up into kernel sized pieces
  • Once you have the filling ready, take out the tray from the oven carefully and grease it up with the butter. Add the filling and the cheese into the tray cups
  • In a separate large bowl, using a blender, blend the eggs until they become frothy. Add the flour, milk, salt and pepper and blend until mixed
  • Pour the batter into each tray cup until just below the rim
  • Place into oven and bake. Once the popovers are puffed and hold their shape, about 25 minutes, open the oven door and sprinkle a bit more cheese on top and cook until golden brown, about 10 more minutes.
  • Let them cool before serving. You can eat them straight or if you’d like, add some jam or drizzle a little maple syrup on top
  • Enjoy!
