Parmesan Popover Image

Makes 12 popovers

1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Pinch salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 large eggs
1 egg white
1 cup 1 percent milk
1 Tbsp butter, melted
2 scallions, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Lightly coat a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray and put in oven to preheat.
  2. Whisk flour, Parmesan, salt and pepper in medium bowl. Make a well in center of flour mixture.
  3. Whisk eggs, egg white, milk and butter together until frothy. Pour into well of flour mixture and whisk just until smooth. Stir in the scallions.
  4. When a drop of water sizzles in the pan, the pan is hot enough. Spoon in batter, dividing it evenly among the 12 cups. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° F and bake until popovers are golden and puffed, about 10 minutes longer. Immediately remove popovers from pan and make a small slit in the side of each to release steam.
