Remember the raspberry popovers that I made? This time I made a savory version with cheese and olives! These savory popovers make a great snack or side dish for your brunch table. On this page I’m sharing the recipe for savory popovers with cheese and olives.
Popovers aren’t very known in the Netherlands yet, but they’re very popular in the United States. These snacks that literally pop over their tin, are airy like croissants. And just like croissants you can eat them sweet and savory. Because they rise so high in the oven you get a very airy snack with a crunchy outside. You can make all kinds of savory popovers, but I made mines with grated cheese and black olives.
To make popovers you need a special popover tin. If you live in the Netherlands you can order your popover tin at Surprise Kookgerei.
