Bacon & Egg Dutch Baby

Time: 30 minutes

Music Selection: Bellamy Brothers & Gola – Feels Good To Be Alive

I think my theme for today is about gratitude and happiness. My two recipe posts and music seem to be themed around being happy in the moment and being optimistic about the future. I hope you can feel great today and have hope that your future is going to even get better. I have paired this dutch baby recipe with a piece of music that features a Norwegian rock star (Gola) with some country western stars (the Bellamy Brothers)… an interesting combination, just like this recipe!


Dutch Baby:

5 eggs

1 ¼ cups flour

1 cup milk

3 Tbsp butter


3 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1 Tbsp fresh or dried chopped thyme

1 green onion, diced finely

1 ½ Tbsp fresh or dried chopped dill


5 – 6 over easy fried eggs

4 – 5 slices of bacon, crispy fried and diced finely

1 green onion, diced

1 ½ cups grated cheddar cheese (or you could use Havarti, Monterey jack or swiss)


Preheat oven to 425 deg F.

In oven proof skillet (like a cast iron skillet that is about 12 inches), melt the butter.

In large bowl, whisk the eggs, flour and milk until well blended. Add in the parsley, thyme, green onion, dill and salt/pepper.

Pour into the skillet and put in oven for about 20 minutes until all puffed up.

In the meantime, grate the cheese and set aside. In a separate skillet, fry the bacon until crispy and then cool. When cool, chop into bacon bits.

Also, in a skillet, fry up 5 -6 eggs so they are runny, over-easy.

When the dutch baby is done, sprinkle on the cheese, then the bacon and put back in the oven for 5 minutes. Top with the runny eggs and sprinkle the green onion on top for garnish!

Serve with homemade breakfast sausage patties!
