Cheesy Bacon Popovers


6 slices bacon
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
¾ cup shredded cheese (any variety)
½ tsp. kosher salt
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. onion powder
¼ tsp. white pepper
¼ tsp. Herbes de Provence
cayenne or Tony’s Creole Seasoning

Cook the bacon in a pan. Reserve the drippings and crumble the bacon.

In a large pitcher, whisk together the eggs, milk, bacon grease and flour.

Mix in the cheese and seasonings, and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Place a mini muffin tin in the oven and heat.

Remove the tin from the oven and pour the batter in the pan, filling each cup. Optional: sprinkle the tops with cayenne pepper or Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning.

Bake in a 425-degree oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden. Enjoy warm.
