This Herb Popovers Recipe Brings a Light and Puffy Addition to Your Brunch Spread

These airy treats get a pop of savory goodness from fresh chives, sage and parsley

If you’ve ever had a popover, you’ll agree they take first place in the baked goods category — even over muffins. These puffy pastries feature a simple batter of flour, eggs and milk. But the magic happens in the oven. The high heat and steam create a popover that rises dramatically. This results in a light and airy interior with a crisp and slightly eggy exterior. This unique texture and subtle flavor profile makes popovers incredibly versatile. And our 35-minute herb popovers recipe doesn’t disappoint. We added freshly chopped chives, parsley and sage for a savory, fresh flavor (learn more about these popular herbs). But you can also customize your popovers and make them sweet, too. Tell us your favorite add-ins below!

When making this herb popovers recipe, ensure your oven preheats to a high temperature. And resist the urge to open it while they cook! Opening the door can cause them to deflate. For more delicious baked goods, try these Peanut Butter Banana Muffins.
