Savory Dutch baby is a big ole pancake that has cheese, bacon, and chive toppings.
Before we get into the post, let me publicly wish Jordan and Charles a Happy 10th Anniversary!!! The years have flown by, and we are so proud of the life the two of you have created together. Here’s to many more!
We are back again today with a pantry recipe that you will certainly enjoy. This savory Dutch baby pancake was such a pleasant surprise to me. It, of course, used items that we had in our house already, and it was easy to make. However, it was also so good. I have had this recipe tucked away in my inspiration recipe file for a few years now, and just decided to make it for our weekly Sunday brunch. We both really enjoyed it. As you probably know, Sunday brunch is my favorite meal of the week to both cook and eat. It’s a change of routine, and in normal times, I look forward to making it after we walk home from church. This recipe is fancy enough to serve for Easter brunch. Add a side of grits or hash browns along with a fruit salad. You might want to add some lemon bread (I recommend this one) as a sweet. Everyone will leave the table satisfied and happy.

- Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with grated cheese. Return to oven for 1 to 2 minutes until cheese melts.

If you are a southern girl, then you are sure to have an iron skillet. If you need an iron skillet, then we recommend this one. Be sure to cure it first.
Despite these crazy times, why not set the table in a nice spring look and enjoy Sunday brunch? It will make the day a little more special even though we aren’t able to go to church.
