1.Place oven rack in lowest position; preheat oven to 450°. Grease 6 standard popover tin cups with butter. Lightly dust bottom and sides of cups with flour, tapping to evenly coat cups; shake out excess flour.

2.In a large bowl, lightly whisk eggs; whisk in milk until frothy. Whisk in bacon, cheese, rosemary, salt, pepper and melted butter until combined. Gradually sift flour into egg mixture, whisking just until combined; do not over mix. Immediately spoon batter into the prepared cups, filling cups about 3/4 full.

3.Bake popovers on bottom rack 15 minutes; reduce temperature to 350°. Bake 15 minutes longer or until popovers are golden brown and sides firm. Serve immediately.

Dietitian Tip:
If not serving immediately, poke a small hole in the side of each popover to release some of the steam to retain their shape.

Popovers can also be prepared in a standard muffin tin. Prepare 10 muffin tin cups and pour about 3 tablespoons batter into each cup as directed in steps 1 and 2. Bake popovers as directed in step 3, baking only 10 minutes longer after reducing temperature to 350°.
