Thyme and Sea Salt Popovers

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Servings 12


  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp regular salt
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 2 tsp coarse sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. You will need a 12 well muffin pan.
  • Melt the butter in a small ramekin. Place 1/2 tsp of the melted butter into each muffin well and set aside.
  • In a blender or food processor, mix the eggs, milk, sugar, regular salt, and remaining butter until smooth.
  • Add the flour and mix for about 30-40 more seconds.
  • Place the muffin tin into the hot oven and heat for about 3 minutes and the butter is sizzling.
  • Using a ladle, pour enough mixture into each muffin well until it reaches about halfway up the sides.
  • Evenly sprinkle the chopped thyme on each popover and place back into the oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes and then turn the oven down to 350 degrees F. Bake for a further 10-12 minutes before opening the oven door and taking them out.
  • Sprinkle each popover with sea salt while still hot.


Serve warm.
Try not to open the oven door while the popovers are baking.
