TWD Popovers with Gruyere and Cayenne


Want to easily impress family and friends at your next gathering?  Serve popovers!  You wouldn't believe how easy they are to make and how delicious they taste served with butter and jam for breakfast/brunch or for dinner with a roast.   

I was definitely looking forward to making the Baking With Julia version for this week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe.   All it takes are ingredients you have in your kitchen: eggs, milk, flour, salt and butter.  I added gruyere and cayenne pepper to give it a more savory vibe.  

Now you don't really need to fork over money for a popover pan, but I think it's worth the investment if you plan on making these often; after one taste, trust me, you will! You can find the recipe here Vintage Kitchen Notes and here Bake With Amy.

  3. Gruyère is one of my favourite cheese!
    Did you know that I live close to La Gruyère (Switzerland is so small that you practically live near to every-place!), where the original cheese comes from. It's such a lovely place! The village is of extraordinary beauty (http://www.la-gruyere.ch/en/Destinations/Gruyeres/places-of-interest-gruyeres.html)

    Your popovers look beautiful and I love the pan.
    I made some of mine with grana cheese, rosemary, white and black pepper and nutmeg and we loved them.

    This is a great recipe: so many possibilities.

  4. I have a love affair with gruyere! I bet it made these more than delicious. Thanks--I'll let hubby know it was your fault I purchased the popover pan. Can one have too many pans--I think not.

  6. I like the idea of giving these a little savoury, cheesy goodness. Gruyère is always a good choice!

  8. I saw so many variations on these same popovers this week thanks to TWD, but yours are spectacular! And I love the use of gruyere and cayenne - I bet they tasted amazing... I'm featuring this post in today's Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution). I hope you have no objections and thanks for the inspiration...
