Updated March 16, 2017

Ingredients

  • 2 slices bacon, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (1 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. In 8-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon 5 to 7 minutes over medium heat until crisp. Transfer to bowl using slotted spoon. Reserve 1 tablespoon bacon drippings for greasing muffin cups.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat eggs with whisk. Beat in milk. Beat in flour and salt until smooth. Stir in thyme.
  • 3
    Generously grease 12 regular-size muffin cups with reserved bacon drippings. Place muffin pan in oven 5 minutes. Carefully remove pan from oven. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Sprinkle bacon evenly over batter in muffin cups.
  • 4
    Bake 27 to 30 minutes or until deep golden brown. Prick top of each popover once with sharp paring knife to prevent deflation. Sprinkle cheese evenly over popovers. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Expert Tips

  • Be sure to use finely shredded cheese; it melts faster than regular shredded cheese.
