light and crispy herb & goat cheese popovers

yield: 12 popovers

  • Author: Kayla Howey


  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup AP flour
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh sage
  • 1 ½ tsp chopped fresh oregano
  • ½ tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 3.5 oz goat cheese, crumbled
  • honey, as needed


  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Melt the butter and let cool slightly. Pour 1 tablespoon of the butter into the container of a blender and set aside. With the remaining melted butter, pour about a teaspoon into each cup of a 12-cup muffin tin.
  2. To the blender, add the eggs, milk, sugar, and salt. Blend until smooth. Add the flour in three batches, blending as you go. Stir in the chopped fresh herbs. Place the muffin tin into the oven for 2 minutes. Remove the pan and pour the batter about halfway up each cup. Distribute the goat cheese evenly across each cup, placing the crumbles right into the batter.
  3. Bake the popovers for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350F and finish cooking for another 15 minutes. Do not open the oven during this time. Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the popovers to a serving platter. Drizzle the popovers with honey and a pinch more salt, if desired.
