Hamburger Popovers

So, THIS recipe that I am posting below is actually Kosher for Passover. BUT, it can easily be made into a regular non-Passover recipe! These are really good, and fun to eat for dinner, especially for kids.

My husband told me his mother used to make these all the time when he was a kid, I personally just made and ate them for the first time last year when I made them for Passover. They were very tasty!

They are pretty easy to make but will take some time because you need to let the batter rest for about 45 minutes.


For the Popover

2 eggs
2 teaspoons oil
2/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper (or black pepper, the only difference is color!)
1/2 cup cake meal

For the Hamburger

1/2 pound ground beef or veal
1 egg
1 tablespoon matzo meal
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion or 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
oil for muffin cups


In a medium sized mixing bowl, prepare the popover batter by beating the eggs with the oil, water, and seasonings.

Stir in the cake meal. Blend well and let rest for 30-45 minutes.

Thoroughly blend the hamburger ingredients in a small bowl.

Shape the mixture into 12 balls and set them aside on a dish.

Grease and heat twelve 2 1/2 inch muffin cups. Pour the batter into the heated cups.

Put a meatball in each muffin cup.

Bake in a preheated 450 degree F. oven for 35 minutes.

This recipe serves 3-4.

Now, like I said, I could see making this as a normal, non-Passover recipe. In fact, I could TOTALLY see making this totally like non Kosher and adding some cheese into them, but that's another story. :-)

For the popover, you would use actual flour instead of cake meal, and maybe a splash of milk. In the meatballs, you would use breadcrumbs instead of matzo meal. I found THIS recipe online, just googling around for a regular hamburger popover recipe, so they are out there!

We like eating these with a little ketchup too!
