  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp. salted butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 12 tsp. butter, salted This is a teaspoon per popover cup. If you're not using th emini popover pan, you might need about a teaspoon and a half per whatever cup you're using.
  • 12 half teaspoons of goat cheese
  • 6 strips of bacon, crumbled


  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. 
  • Add your 12 tsp. of butter to your popover pan and set aside. 
  • Mix eggs and milk together until the mixture becomes frothy 
  • Add in your 2 Tbsp. of melted butter and Kosher salt to the mixture. Mix again. 
  • Slowly begin to add in your flour a little at a time. You can see how I do it in the video. 
  • Once everything is blended set aside and add the popover pan with the butter to the oven. 
  • Heat the pan with the butter for about 30 second to one minute. You want the teaspoons of butter to melt in the pan but you don't want to overcook it or worse, burn it. 
  • Remove the pan from the oven and use a spoon or measuring cup to pour your batter into the cups. Fill them only about half way.
  • Add in your crumbled bacon and goat cheese to each mini cup. 
  • Add a little more batter to each cup to try to cover the cheese and the bacon. 
  • Immediately stick the pan in the oven at 450 degrees and cook for 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them but DO NOT open the oven. 
  • Without opening the oven, turn the heat down to 350 degrees and cook for another 12-15 minutes. If they look golden at 12 minutes take them out. 
  • When the time is up, remove the pan from the oven and if you have a very sharp knife you can slit each popover to try and help them retain their shape. 
  • Serve warm with the Whipped Cranberry Butter.
