- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, divided
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
- Salt and ground black pepper
- 1 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
- 1 cup milk
- 3 eggs
Preheat oven to 450F. Prepare a mini muffin pan by spraying each cup with nonstick cooking spray and dropping a small dollop of melted butter into each one.
In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the flour, thyme, salt, pepper and cheese. In a blender, process the milk and eggs until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the blender and process until the batter is smooth, about 2 minutes.
Divide the batter evenly between the cups, filling them up about halfway. Bake the cups until puffed and deep golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool the popovers briefly in the pan then remove them while still rather hot. Serve warm.
