Recipe: Dutch Babies

Dutch babies, also known as German pancakes, are a special treat for breakfast. They take some time to prepare and cook, but they are definitely worth the wait. Here is our recipe:


  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted, plus more for pan prep
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • Powdered sugar (optional)


Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Butter a 12-inch oven-safe skillet, or use 4 6-inch oven-safe skillets to make smaller puffed up treats.

Whisk eggs until mixed thoroughly and uniform in color. Add your milk and vanilla extract. In another bowl, whisk flour and salt, then slowly add it to the eggs. Whisk the batter until it’s smooth. Then incorporate the melted butter.

For smaller Dutch babies: divide the batter into the pans and bake for 15 minutes, then remove.

For the large Dutch babies: pour batter into pan and bake for the 15 minute period. Then lower oven to 350 degrees and cook an additional 5-10 minutes until fully cooked.

Plate and sprinkle powdered sugar on the Dutch babies and serve with the fruit curd or fresh berries.

Recipe of the Week: Chicken Sausage Breakfast Casserole

When you crave a hearty breakfast for a long day of sightseeing or outdoor activities, this casserole is guaranteed to satisfy.


  • 1 lb. of pre-cooked chicken sausage, any flavor (I like mozzarella and roasted garlic) diced into small pieces
  • 12 oz fresh slicked mushrooms, or you could use canned (if you use canned you omit the saute in olive oil)
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 slices of bread, crust removed ( I use sourdough) butter one side
  • 1 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 7 oz can chopped green chiles
  • 2 cups shredded cheese ( I use cheddar)
  • 1 small can of sliced black olives (if you’re not an olive person, just omit them)


Saute mushrooms in two tablespoons of olive oil over high heat until nicely browned, transfer to paper towel lined plate to drain.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, milk, dry mustard and salt together.

Place the bread slices buttered side down in a 9 x 13 casserole dish.

Sprinkle sausage, and mushrooms evenly over bread slices.  Sprinkle with scallions and green chiles.  Sprinkle cheese over that.  Pour the egg mixture over all the ingredients.  Sprinkle olives over cheese.

Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator overnight.

Next morning, remove plastic wrap and place in preheated 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes, until knife inserted comes out clean.  Let dish set for at least 10 minutes before cutting.  It may need more time it will depend on your oven and if you are cooking more than one casserole at a time.  ENJOY!
