This rich, family-size popover could be made with another good melting cheese, such as Canadian Fontina, or a combination of cheeses to augment the flavour. Instead of the packaged frozen spinach, you can use 1 lb (500 g) fresh spinach, blanched, drained and chopped.

  • Portion size 6 servings



In large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, water, salt, pepper and nutmeg; whisk in flour until smooth. Let stand for at least 20 minutes. Mix in spinach.

Meanwhile, place 9- or 10-inch (23 or 25 cm) cast-iron skillet or heavy 8- or 9-inch (2 or 2.5 L) square metal cake pan on centre rack of oven; heat to 450°F (230°C). Add oil and butter to skillet, swirling to coat when butter is melted. Immediately scrape in egg mixture; bake for 20 minutes.

Sprinkle cheese over top. Reduce heat to 350°F (180°C); bake for 10 minutes.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
