Popovers: BLT Steak (NYC) Recipe

Popovers- BLT Steak Recipe-9511.jpg

on a serendipitous business lunch, my cousin got to have the gruyere popovers at BLT Steak in NYC accompanied with a little card that has the recipe. So she sent the recipe and I got to baking!

BLT Steak Gruyere Popovers
yield: 6 popovers

* 2 cups (whole) milk, warmed
* 4 (large) eggs
* 2 cups (all-purpose) flour (about 260g)
* 3/4 heaping tbsp salt
* 1 1/8 cups grated gruyere cheese (a little more than 2 ounces)

* Place the popover pan in the oven. Heat the oven and pan to 350 degrees.
* Gently warm the milk over low heat and set aside.
* Whisk the eggs until frothy and slowly whisk in the milk (so as not to cook the eggs). Set the mixture aside.
* Sift the flour with the salt. Slowly add flour/salt mixture to the milk/egg mixture and gently combine until mostly smooth.
* Once combined, remove the popover pan from the oven and spray with non-stick vegetable spray. While the batter is still slightly warm or room temperature (definitely not cool), fill each popover cup 3/4 full.
* Top each popover with approximately 2 1/2 tbsp of grated gruyere.
* Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, rotating pan a half turn after 15 minutes of baking.
* Remove from the oven, remove from pan, and serve immediately

Looking at the recipe, I was a little annoyed the flour wasn’t given by weight (yes, there is a difference measuring by weight as compared to measuring by volume – but that’s for another post). I also did not use the spray oil, but instead a 1/6 pat of butter in the pan. but what really struck me was that these bake for 50 minutes! other popovers I’ve made were in the over for about a half hour. As my cousin noted, BLT Steak probably left some key step or ingredient that makes them super special – but it seems like a legit recipe.


at 15 mins, the popovers had started their pop:

They are HUGE!

They have a darker crust than previous ones I’ve made.

They are SUPER TASTY – sprinkle of cheese makes them super good!

So if you’re up for it, get your baking gear together and make some delicious giant popovers!
