Many times rolls and breads are an afterthought of a meal, something to serve just because. I, however, would be okay with a meal that consisted only of bread, but that’s just me. Forget everything else, I love my carbs.
If you are leaning more towards that first category, have I got a recipe for you. Not only will these cheese popovers be a delight along with almost any meal, they may just steal the show.
If you’re unfamiliar with popovers, they are light hollow rolls made from a very simple egg batter. The name comes from the fact that the batter pops over the top of the muffin tin while baking. They seem to defy gravity as they riser higher and higher in the oven.
I’ve topped these popovers with Swiss cheese and I love the sharp flavor and crisp texture it lends. Other cheeses like Gruyere, Parmesan, and even a sharp cheddar will substitute equally well.
The hollow interior is perfect for trapping any gravy and sauces that need mopping up, but of course if you decide to forgo the meal and just devour a few popovers all by themselves I wouldn’t blame you.
