Butternut Squash & Caramelized Onion Popovers with Goat Cheese Crumble

Yes, yes, I know. This sounds way fussier than I typically am. Butternut Squash & Caramelized Popovers sound like something on a menu somewhere. Somewhere…fancy.

And yet here we are.


Why the change?

Well, because sometimes, I just like to throw you a little curveball and see what happens.


Really, these popovers aren’t fussy at all, in fact, they take no longer to whip up than any of my other 547 popover recipes. A little caramelized onion, your basic, non-sweet popover batter, and something new – Veggie Blend Ins Butternut Squash puree.

I was sent this new product (along with their carrot and spinach varieties), and asked to sneak it in to a recipe. You know, to add some veggies in places we don’t typically see them, so that we get our fair share of the good stuff without even realizing it.

Popovers are one of our staples here in my house, sweet or savory, so I decided I’d give the butternut squash a go in a batch one afternoon. Paired with sweet, caramelized onions and a topping of goat cheese crumbles, this is one savory popover that really packs the flavor. And so, so easy. The packets of pureed veggies are small enough to be convenient, and large enough to make a great add-in to so many things. Like mac & cheese, for example. Or pasta sauce. Or brownies? Yep, even brownies. Veggie Blend Insteamed up with cookbook author Jessica Seinfeld to develop a bunch of clever recipes using the purees, so, if you’ve got a picky eater that turns their nose up at anything vegetable related, this is a great way to slip some in on him. Who can turn down a brownie or mac & cheese?

NO. BODY. That’s who.

Until then, here are the popovers…Give them a try!


Butternut Squash & Caramelized Onion Popovers with Goat Cheese Crumble

makes 12


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup Butternut Squash puree (I used Veggie Blend Ins)
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced and caramelized
  • Crumbled Goat Cheese or Feta, to top


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Prepare a large, evenly divide the butter into a 12 cup Mini-Popover Pan. Place the pan in the oven for 3 minutes to melt the butter. Remove when melted. Spray each vessel with cooking spray to prevent any sticking.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the milk. Add in the flour, salt and puree, stir to combine. Fold in the caramelized onions. Pour batter evenly into the popover pans. (I poured mine almost to the top of each vessel.)
  3. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350. Bake an additional 20-25 minutes, or until all are puffed and golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven, top with Goat Cheese or Feta, serve and enjoy!
