Pumpkin Pie Mini Pop Overs…and a Giveaway

I’ve been dying to post these for over a week. You have no idea how hard it’s been!


You probably know I am a big fan of the pop over in this house – in fact, pretty much any weekend where breakfast is made, pop overs are on the menu. Jon always requests them, and little Seven says they are his favorite, so I consider them the breakfast staple. I’ve done plain, I’ve done buttermilk, I’ve done chocolate chip, I’ve done blueberry. I’ve introduced friends and family to the joy that is the pop over.

And now that it’s fall, I introduce YOU to the Pumpkin Pie Pop Over.

But not just the pop over…the MINI popover.

Sure, you can use a standard muffin tin, but I have this fun new mini pop over pan from Chicago Metallic that I am loving, and it was perfect for this recipe. It will make 12, the same amount my standard go-to recipe will make, but for some reason, neither of us could manage to eat more than 3 each. So we had a lot left! Luckily, they refrigerate well and are just as good the next day…should you find yourself unable to eat the whole batch. Serve them up with my Pumpkin Orange Vanilla Bean Butter, or, try a cinnamon sugar butter…both are excellent. Enjoy!
