Martha Stewart's Hors D'oeuvres Handbook and Blue Cheese Popovers

Happy New Year everyone!

I'd like to share with you an hors d'oeuvre I made for the new year from a cookbook I have had for several years; Martha Stewart's Hors D'oeuvres Handbook.
This is a really comprehensive cookbook for all things hors d'oeuvres.

I decided to make Blue Cheese Popovers.Ingredients:

My take on this recipe:
1 - Super easy to make
2 - Tasted horrible and said popovers are now in the trash. I followed this recipe to a tee. They were so bland. Because they were easy to make, I will try to savor-up the recipe and see what happens.
3 - The recipe instructs using a mini muffin tin and will make 48 popovers. I used a mini muffin tin and you can see from my photo that they only made 18 popovers. I guess not all mini muffin tins are made the same.

I will certainly make more of the recipes from Martha's book but not this one, this way.

Bummer that you didn't like it Carmie. Big difference between 18 and 48... Hope you find a recipe in the book that you do love:@)

Happy New Year Carmie!!! I hope you had a wonderful holiday!! I am so sorry about the popovers, they look good though. :) Sometimes Martha doesn't always come through. :)
Have a wonderful week, it is finally winter here, I guess that is ok.

They look delicious...wonder what was missing!! I need to brush up on my appetizer recipes...too much cheese and crackers lately! ;-D

I have made gruyere popovers before and they turned out great. I've also made plain popovers. I wonder why they were so bland...maybe the cheese?

I hate when that happens...especially if I am using dinner guests as guinea pigs. Hope you have a wonderful 2012!
