Side dish: Smoked Cheddar & Thyme Popovers

We bet you can’t stop at one piping-hot crisp-on-the-outside, soft-in-the-middle popover! And who could blame you? These get smoked cheddar and fresh thyme to make them even more alluring, with an optional drizzle of maple syrup. Sopping up gravy never had it so good!
