Apple Bacon Popovers

15 Nov

Popovers, muffins, puddings….whatever you want to call them. They make a great breakfast food, or appetizer before dinner. It’s very easy to make these light and airy popovers, and they go well with jams or apple butter.



  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 cups milk (skim or 1%)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 strips turkey bacon (or your favourite kind of bacon 🙂
  • 1 large apple (I used Granny Smith)
  • cooking spray
  • apple butter (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and egg whites until well blended. Whisk in milk.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt.
  3. Gradually add flour mixture to egg mixture and whisk together. Let stand about 30 minutes.
  4. While batter is standing, preheat oven to 450 F.
  5. Cook bacon strips. Then drain, let cool, and finely chop.
  6. Finely dice the apple, including peel.bacon and apples
  7. Coat muffin tins with cooking spray.
  8. Fold bacon, apple, and butter into the batter. Stir well until blended.
  9. Pour batter into muffin tins.
  10. Bake at 450 F for 18 minutes. Then reduce heat to 325 F and bake for 10 more minutes.
  11. Serve right away, with apple butter (optional).

Makes about 18 regular-sized “muffins” (or a whole bunch of mini muffins)
