Popovers Make Tiny Bread Bowls for Cute Appetizers

Popovers are a fun example of how different ratios of the same handful of simple ingredients can produce such totally different things! The amount of eggs in this recipe is more than most, but other than that, it has pretty standard amounts of flour, sugar, baking powder, etc for something bread-like, and what it actually creates is totally different.

They are almost entirely hollow on the inside! So you can stuff them with whatever you want to create all sorts of combinations in these cute, little, almost muffin-like, containers! Quinoa salad, egg salad, chick peas, endless possibilities.

The addition of the extra eggs makes these little guys grow up and also out! The other neat thing about them is they’re baking at 425F to begin with, and then it’s lowered without opening the door and that seems to help with the height as well.

The batter is incredibly runny, do not be alarmed!

I did the whole recipe in the food processor, or you can use your blender if you want! You can also add some wheat germ for some extra fiber or phyllium husk or whatever your fiber go to is. Let me know in the comments what your favourite source of fiber is that you could add to this recipe!



These cute little muffin-shaped pockets are hollow inside, perfect for stuffing with your favourite mixtures.

  • Blend until fully incorporated.
    Pour into muffin tray.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Turn oven down to 350, bake for additional 15 minutes.


You don’t want these to get too browned on the tops, so once the initial baking is done and you’ve lowered the temperature, keep an eye on it. It may take as little as 10 minutes instead of 15.
