Swiss Cheese Popover

I am always looking for a simple bread side for dinner. I want easy and I want variety. My husband actually whipped these up for Tuesday soup night and I really liked them. The Swiss cheese and egg added to this simple batter was delicious. To be fair my children did not love them. But we are still in the process of trying to convert them to Swiss cheese. My hubby liked the toasted cheese crust the best and I liked the interesting texture of these popovers.

Swiss Cheese Popovers
1/2 Cup flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg, room temperature
1/2 Cup milk room temperature ( we actually used reconstituted Morning Moos powdered milk and these turned out fine)
1 TB melted butter
1.2 tsp Dijon-Style mustard
6 TB shredded Swiss cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Stir flour and salt in medium bowl. Beat egg, milk, melted butter, and mustard in a different bowl. Pour over flour and stir to form batter. Do not beat.

Grease 4muffin cups and fill each cup with 1 TB shredded cheese. Allow cheese to stick to sides of muffin tins. Divide batter between cheese coated cups. Top with remaining cheese. Fill empty cups half-full of water for even baking.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until popovers have risen and are golden brown. Remove from muffin tin and serve warm.
