Apple-Cheddar Popovers


butter-flavored cooking spray
1 tart apple, such as Pippin, Granny Smith, or Fuji, peeled, cored, and chopped
1/3 cup shredded 2% sharp cheddar cheese
2 large eggs
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup low fat (1%) milk
1 tablespoon reduced-fat margarine, melted


Preheat oven to 450F. Lightly coat 8 popover cups with cooking spray. Place 1 tablespoon each of the apple and cheese at the bottom of each popover cup. In a food processor or blender, combine eggs, flour, and salt. Process until well blended. With the machine running, add milk and margarine through the feed tube. Process until smooth. Fill the cups two-thirds full with the batter. Bake for 15 minutes, reduce oven temperature to 350F, and continue to bake for another 20 minutes until popovers are puffed and golden brown. Let cool at least 15 minutes, then remove from pan. Makes 8 servings.
