Bacon-Cheddar Popovers

1 c. all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 c. milk
3/4 c. shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 scallions, trimmed and chopped

Coat 8 cup of a popover or muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Fill empty cups with 1/2-inch of water (so as not to burn pan). In bowl whisk together flour and salt. In second bowl whisk together eggs and milk. Add to flour mixture and stir just until blended. Fold in cheese, bacon and scallion. Fill prepared cups 2/3-3/4 full (a scant 1/3 cup batter in each). Bake in preheated 450° oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake for 10-15 minutes until browned and puffed. Keep oven closed until end of baking time or popovers will deflate. Remove popovers from oven and immediately remove from pan. Pierce sides once with a knife to release steam. Serve warm. If needed reheat at 350° for 5 minutes to crisp outside edges.
