Spinach & Garlic Popovers

Ingredients:   yields 12 muffins

  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, shredded & chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


Butter your muffin pan. In a large bowl, gently blend the eggs, buttermilk, milk, flour and salt. Fold in the spinach and garlic until just blended. The batter may be lumpy. Fill the muffin pan completely full with the batter. Place the pan in the center of your oven. Now turn your oven on, set the temperature to 450 and bake for 30 minutes. The trick to these popovers is baking them with a cold oven to start, then going through the pre-heating stage to full temperature and no opening of the oven door during the 30 minute baking period. Just let them go. When the Popovers are fully baked they will have risen above the muffin pan, browned with rounded tops. Once they start to cool their tops will collapse a bit.

Suggestions: These are just wonderful with sweet butter. I like to make these for breakfast and dinner. They pair well with a simple spaghetti and of course go great with eggs and bacon for breakfast.
