Garlic and Parmesan popovers

Scorrere verso il basso

These puffy and flavorful Parmesan popovers are a great way to please your guests. The version I present to you are popovers with Italian Parmesan cheese and garlic. Great for dinner parties or as an appetizer. Although the original recipe requires a popover pan, with this recipe you can use a simple muffin pan.

Hope you enjoy this recipe. It’s:

  • fun
  • fragrant and delicious

  • 180 ml milk
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 0.25 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 60 g all-purpose flour
  • 30 g melted butter
  • 0.5 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Instructions garlic and Parmesan popovers

  • Pour milk into a bowl. Add crushed garlic, salt and pepper and an egg. Mix everything well with a whisk.
  • Add the sifted flour and whisk several times until it is incorporated.
  • Add melted butter, grated cheese and chopped parsley.
  • Mix well and pour into a container with a spout to make it easier to transfer the batter into the pan.
  • For this recipe I used a muffin pan which I have brushed generously with olive oil. Preheat oven to 230 ° C. Place empty pan in hot oven for 5 minutes.
  • As soon as the pan is preheated pour the mixture into muffin wells (about 3/4 in hight) leaving spaces between each popover. Do not pour too much batter or the popovers will pour out of the tray.
  • Bake 15 minutes at 230 °C. After 15 minutes lower the temperature to 180 °C and bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Take the tray out from the oven. With a sharp knife make small hole in each popover to remove hot air. Take them out from the tray and serve immediately.
