Ingredient Notes: 

Parmesan Cheese: Use parm or any cheese you have on hand. Parm pairs nicely with herbs like rosemary if you want to get creative. 

Milk: For this popover recipe I use whole milk to really get the perfect texture for their popovers. However, you can substitute this for your favorite plant-based milk instead.
