ounces all purpose flour
teaspoon fine sea salt
teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
cup Parmesan cheese
tablespoons chopped fresh chives
teaspoon grated fresh lemon zest
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly coat a 12-cup popover pan or muffin tin with melted butter or oil. Whisk together the milk, eggs and butter in a large bowl until blended. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Place the empty pan in the oven to heat for 7 minutes. Carefully remove from the oven and fill the cups evenly with the batter (this is less messy if you transfer batter to a 4 cup liquid measuring cup). Bake for 18 – 20 minutes, then lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Continue baking until the popovers are deep golden brown, 15 – 18 more minutes. Cool briefly in the pan before removing and serving. You can reheat cooled popovers in a 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes.
