“These wee egg pies puff up like muffins when baking. They are delicious warm or at room temp and are the perfect size for eating out of your hand. I made these for Easter breakfast and they were loved by all. I used mini potatoes thinly sliced. The recipe says it make 4 servings....but I got 6 out of it.”
4-6 popovers

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Generously brush 4-6 muffins cups with oil OR spray with non stick spray.
  2. Whisk eggs with tarragon and salt.
  3. Pour a little into each muffin cup.
  4. Divide potatoes, peas, and cheese among the cups, then pour remaining egg mixture over top.
  5. Cups will be very full.
  6. Bake in preheated 300 degree oven until eggs are very puffy and set when pan is jiggled -- about 30-35 minutes.
  7. Let stand 5 minutes, then run a knife around inside of each popover and using a spoon, scoop out.
  8. ***Note*** I found that if you use a non stick spray -- they just "pop" out.
