  • Level: Easy
  • Total: 1 hr 5 min
  • Active: 20 min
  • Yield: 6 popovers and 1 cup dip


Blistered Tomato Dip:



Special equipment:
a popover pan
  1. For the blistered tomato dip: Spray a popover pan with nonstick spray and place in the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Add the tomatoes, olive oil, sugar, salt, vinegar, pepper, thyme and rosemary to a large skillet. Toss the tomatoes to evenly coat. Cook over medium heat until the skins blister and the juices release, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then remove and discard the herb sprigs and pulse in a blender 3 to 4 times to make a chunky dip (see Cook's Note). Set aside.
  3. For the popovers: Clean the blender and put in the eggs and milk. Blend until frothy, about 1 minute. Add the Parmesan, chicken stock and butter. Blend until incorporated and homogenous, 1 minute more. Add the flour, parsley, thyme, scallions, salt and pepper to the batter. Blend once again, just until incorporated.
  4. Divide the batter evenly among the 6 popover cups, filling each halfway. Bake the popovers, rotating the pan after 20 minutes, until golden brown and puffed above the edge of the pan, about 35 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with the blistered tomato dip.

Cook’s Note

When blending hot liquid, first let it cool for five minutes or so, then transfer it to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters, and pulse until smooth. These are sturdier than your average popover?you don't have to worry about deflation once cooled. They hold their shape nicely.
