Begin by preheating your oven to 450ºF and place a mini muffin pan on the middle rack in the oven while the oven preheats.
Combine eggs and milk in a large bowl, whisking until frothy, about 1 minute. Alternately, you can mix in a blender.
Add flour and salt, whisking vigorously to blend until evenly combined (if using a blender, add the flour and salt directly to the blender). If you’re whisking by hand, it’s ok to have a few lumps.
Remove the hot pan from the oven and lightly coat each of the wells with cooking spray. Fill the wells about ¾ full of batter and top each with the minced apple and cubed Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar cheese, distributing as evenly as possible across all wells. Sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar mixture over each popover.
Bake at 450º F for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn popovers out of the pan. Toss popovers in cinnamon sugar mixture and enjoy immediately.
