Easter is right around the corner and we’re still finalizing our menus. One thing we’re definitely having is Appleton Farms Spiral Sliced Double Glazed Brown Sugar Ham from our local ALDI! The ham is super affordable and ALDI is basically a one stop shop for all your Easter needs, and that doesn’t just mean for your meal, they also have really great Easter basket goodies!
Not only are we going to enjoy the delicious ham, but we’re taking a little bit of it, dicing it up and making Ham and Cheese Popovers to add to the menu! The popover recipe couldn’t be easier to throw together, plus they’re so good! I could seriously eat an entire batch of them to myself. The little bits of sweet and salty ham and mild, melty Swiss pairs so well with the custardy popovers. This Easter make sure you stop over at your local ALDI to throw together a delicious and affordable Easter celebration! You can also order all of the ingredients you need on Instacart and have them delivered. Click here for that link, and get $10 off your first three ALDI orders of $35 or more with the code ALDISFB.

I made this with my Christmas ham bone today and have to thank you for sharing! I haven’t had split pea soup in years. So glad I made this, it is delicious!!!!
These we good, even reheated. However, for my taste they were a bit bland. I will be making them again but will be adding onion powder and mustard powder with the batter. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Can these be reheated? I feel like they would be tasty for breakfast.
These can be reheated, but they won’t be quite as fluffy and custardy. You can warm them in a 350˚F oven just until they’e heated through, 6 to 8 minutes.
MMMM Great recipe!
I’ve made this recipe 4 times now. I’ve used different pans (nonstick included) and used different things to grease the pans, but every time they stick to the pan. Any tips?
Try heating the pan in the oven while it preheats
Do you need to use a popover pan? Can these be made in a muffin pan?
These can definitely be made in a muffin tin
Amazing! I only got muffin trays so thanks for this info 😍
Hi, I will check this recipe this week – am at home for the next 3 weeks, so I have time enough. yours looking good.
Got a popover pan for Christmas as I’ve been wanting to do the popovers I remember as a kid. First time out they didn’t ‘pop’ as much as I’d hoped but 5 out of 6 were well above the rim. Added finely diced ham and a T of grated cheese… maybe that made a difference. Flavor is really good, but will refine my next batch!
i tried these and, while they tasted great, i think the recipe only has half the amount of batter needed to make 12 popovers. when i made these as directed, they did not rise and “pop” – they were simply small ham & cheese muffins, haha! i looked at other recipes and realized that the amount of batter in this recipe was half what it is in others, so I next time i’ll double the batter to be able to make 12 :) thanks for a yummy recipe otherwise!
totally agree with you! I was expecting a “dome”
The recipe used a smaller size popover pans. My popover pans were 1 cup capacity each (6 cups in one pan – total of 6 cups). II was only able to make 6 popovers.
CORRECTION: My popover pan byChicago Metallic and is a 6 cup Popover Pan, each cup measuring 3″ x 2-1/4″ (7.6 cm x 5.7 cm). For this recipe, I yield 6 popovers, adding 9g finely diced ham and 14g grated gruyere cheese in each cup. Baked for 25 mins.
Regardless, these popovers turned out great! Crispy exterior, soft and airy interior loaded with ham and cheese throughout. This recipe is good.
