Units Scale
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 F (225 C) and brush the inside of 8 cups of your muffin pan with the melted butter. Be sure to get complete coverage.
  2. Mix together the cheese and dill and set aside.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and remaining melted butter until combined. Add the flour and gently but quickly stir it in with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. A few lumps are okay.
  4. Put one scoop of batter into each prepared muffin cup then add a fat pinch of cheese and dill to each one. Top up each muffin cup with the remaining batter.
  5. Bake your popovers  for about 15-16 minutes, then lower the oven temperature to 350 F (175 C) and bake for an additional 10-11 minutes until your popovers are brown and puffy.
  6. Allow the popovers to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes, then carefully remove and serve warm.
