Suggested Equipment

Muffin Tin


  • Strips of Bacon (/ cooked & chopped) 3 to 5
  • Flour 1 ½ Cups
  • Eggs 3
  • High-Quality Butter 3 Tablespoons
  • Sea Salt (If you don't add the bacon use 1 Teaspoon of Sea Salt) ½ Teaspoon
  • Honey 1 Tablespoon
  • Whole Milk 1 ½ Cups
  • sugar (/ optional - small pinch of sugar) 1 pinch


  • First, grease the muffin tin with butter or oil and set to the side
  • Crack 3 eggs into a bowl with ½ teaspoon of sea salt and mix well. Next, add the milk and melted butter into the same bowl, combine well.
  • Measure out (1 - ½) cups of flour and add into the mix slowly making sure to not get any lumps and combine the ingredients well. Add honey and chopped cooked bacon.


  • Preheat oven to 425.
    KEY TO SUCCESS: - First, place the muffin tray in the oven for a few minutes to heat up before adding the batter to the muffin tray.
    KEY # 2: During Baking - DO NOT OPEN OVEN FOR 30 Minutes
    (Spray tin with cooking spray) before adding batter to the hot muffin tin.

Filling Muffin Tin

  • Key is to fill the tray ⅔rd the way up the sides, leaving ⅓ of room for the popovers to pop over the top of the muffin tin.


You can add any flavor combinations you can think of. Adding sliced ham, chives, cheese etc. It's all on the table with PopOvers. Dream away...
