Corn, Chive, & Buttermilk Pop Overs

I’ve become smitten with a food blog called Smitten Kitchen. The photos are simple and useful, the recipes are easy to follow, and there is a personal touch to each blog post that I love!

While perusing all their amazing recipes the other day, I came across this one for Corn, Buttermilk, and Chive Popovers. I drooled at the sight of them. I love corn. I love chives. I love things that popover!

I went out the next day and bought all the ingredients needed to put together these delightful little treats. I followed the recipe exactly as stated except instead of using chives I used green onions. I also used a muffin tin instead of a popover tin. While they didn’t turn out 100% like the pictures they were pretty tasty and as Deb mentions in her blog post, they can be a little finicky to perfect. I think my oven had a role to play in the way they turned out. This recipe yielded me 12 popovers in a muffin tin.

The popovers were wonderful but I think the next time I make these I will do two things differently.

  1. Actually use chives. I found the green onions provided too strong a taste for my liking in this particular recipe.
  2. Mix everything together instead of blending it in a blender. I would have liked the corn to stay whole so that you get pops of sweetness when you bite into them.

Over all, this is definitely a recipe I want to try over again and perfect. It really was quite easy to make, I just need to figure out my oven!

I strongly suggest you checking out the Smitten Kitchen. There are so many great recipes on there I am sure you will find something you will love!

    I have a finicky oven too. Of course, I’m not as wonderful a cook as you are, but the dang thing burns everything. Hoping to upgrade that appliance soon! Love your blog!
