Savory Oven Pancake

Savory Oven Pancake | Barbara Bakes

A savory version of a German (Dutch) Oven Pancake. Sort of a cross between a soufflé and an omelet with bacon, green onions and cheese.

Authentic Simplicity is my Secret Recipe Club blog this month. Anne’s goal in life is to balance authenticity (keepin’ it real) with simplicity, and she shares great tips and delicious recipes on Authentic Simplicity to help you do the same.

My daughter thought this Savory Oven Pancake tasted a bit like Yorkshire pudding, and thought it would be even better made in muffin cups. My son thought it tasted like a crustless quiche. I thought it was a fantastic idea and a great way to change a sweet recipe to a savory recipe.

If you prefer savory over sweet, this recipe is for you. It’s a quick, delicious recipe that would be perfect any time of day.
