Bayley Hazen Popovers

Pop!  Goes the holidays. This week we’re popping with excitement over these Blue Popovers. Bursting with Bayley Hazen Blue, thyme and a touch of lemon, these little hot mamas are warm and savory, perfect for these chilly nights of entertaining. Easy make-ahead batter means a quick hors d’oeuvre that will wow your guests. Best served warm, accompanied by spicy, Creminelli Calabrese, or sweeten up the savory with a drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
