Cheesy Popovers

So... I made these tonight to go with our hamburger steaks and brown gravy.  These were good on their own but dipped in the brown gravy they were crazy good, in fact I think I heard the angels singing.  ;) 

My neighbor was sad at first when I took him one to taste test... he didn't think he would like them since they are basically hollow on the inside.  He did enjoy them though and has suggested that I make some and stuff them with crab and shrimp... we will see about that!

2 eggs
1 cup of milk
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup flour
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup of shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
Optional ingredients: 3 crumbled cooked bacon strips, ½ tsp of oregano or ¼ cup of finely chopped onions ( I added 1/2 tsp garlic powder)

Heat your oven to 400 degrees F.
In a regular muffin pan grease and flour 9 out of 12 muffin tins.
Whisk the eggs, oil and milk together in a large bowl.
Add the salt and flour.
Whisk until smooth, but do not over-beat.
It’s okay if there’s some small lumps.
Fill the greased tins 2/3 full with batter.
Fill the empty tins ½ full with water.
Sprinkle the tops of your popovers with cheese, bacon or onion.
Bake in the oven between 25-30 minutes.
Don’t open the oven before that time.
Remove from oven and stab the tops with a fork.
Serve immediately with butter, jam or even brown gravy.
If you have any leftovers, put them in the fridge!
