Apple Bacon Popovers
2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
2 cups 1% milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 strips turkey bacon
1 large apple
1 Tbsp. light, unsalted butter, melted
Apple Butter, optional
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and egg whites until well blended. Whisk in milk and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to egg mixture, stirring well with a whisk. Let stand 30 minutes.
While batter is standing, preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cook bacon strips until crispy. Drain, let cool, and finely chop. Coarsely grate apple, including peel. Coat a 9-cup popover pan with cooking spray. Fold the bacon, grated apple, and melted butter into batter, stirring until well blended.
Pour batter into prepared popover cups until ¾ full. Bake at 450 degrees for 18 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake for 10 minutes more.
Serve immediately with apple butter.
