“When I was preparing lesson plans for my kids cooking camps this summer, I knew I had to include this recipe from Giada De Laurentiis in our Picnic Foods menu. These popovers are light and fluffy, and were a perfect vehicle for all of the fresh herbs that my students harvested from the garden.
Before the summer is officially over, pick some fresh herbs, bake these with your kids, and enjoy them on a picnic or at a playdate!”

Parmesan Popovers


  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp herbs de Provence
  • 4 Tbs chopped parsley leaves
  • 1 cups whole milk
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan (about 5 ounces)

    1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    2. In a blender, combine eggs, flour, salt, pepper, and herbs, milk, and cheese. Blend on medium speed.

    3. Spray a mini-muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the batter into the muffin cups, filling each cup 3/4 full. Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes.

    4. Remove popovers from muffin tin and cool on a wire rack. Store in a container to take to the picnic.
