Ham and Cheese Popovers

The Cook it in a Cup cookbook and its accompanying baking cups are pretty cool. I have been carrying it around with me to show all of my mommy friends so they too can purchase the Cook it in a Cup cookbook. Today Audrey's daddy got up with the girls and made Ham and Cheese Popovers. When I got up a short while later they told me they saved me one. The recipe makes 6.

  • 1 package refrigerated croissant dough
  • 1 cup chopped ham
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Unroll the dough and separate the 6 triangles. Sprinkle an equal amount of the ham and cheese on the center of each triangle. The rolls will have some extra dough on the ends. Trim this off. Place each roll in a cup. Then place the cups on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Let cool for 2 minutes, then turn the rolls out of the cups to serve.

Audrey's (and Maurene's) Tasks:

  1. Place ingredients on dough
  2. Help roll up popovers
  3. Place popovers in cups
Dad's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients and prep
  2. Bake popovers
Daddy decided these needed eggs and so he scrambled a few and added them. I had one and it was good. We will start keeping a roll of croissants in the fridge so we can have these any time. For the filling we can use whatever meat we have on hand and we always have cheese, always. 

Daddy did not take any pictures. 


  1. Did you just roll them like croissants? How did they fit in the cups, and what kind of "cups" are they? I am intrigued by this idea!

  2. I know I answered your question on FB but I thought I would include it here for any who had the same question. They just rolled them like croissants and placed them in regular muffin cups. If you do not have individual cups you can use a muffin tin.


Audrey wants to hear from you!
