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.
Savory Oven Pancake
- ⅓ cup butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tablespoon green onions chopped
- 4 slices bacon crumbled
- ½ teaspoon salt
- fresh ground pepper
- 3 thin slices of Gouda or similar easy melting cheese
- Preheat oven to 425º.
- Put the butter in a 12 inch cast iron (or other oven safe) skillet and place pan in the oven.
- While the butter is melting, mix together eggs, milk, flour, green onions, 3 slices of crumbled bacon, salt and pepper in a large bowl. When the butter is melted, remove the pan from the oven, and pour in the batter.
- Bake the oven pancake for 15-20 minutes or until the pancake is puffy and golden brown. Top with cheese and remaining crumbled bacon before serving.

Ooops..make that gouda..which pairs just as well with sweets 🙂
I’m used to seeing these dutch babies sweet..so the savory definitely sparked my interest! You can NEVER go wrong with bacon, cheese and onions! I’d even pour maple syrup on it or dust with powdered sugar. Onions are sweet when cooked and cheddar pairs wellwith sweet…well..apples..so there! 😉 Awesome choice!
I’ll have savory any day. We love omelets and German pancakes–it must be delicious.
I just made my first sweet dutch baby pancake and loved it and I was wondering how a savory take would go. Now I know and it’s worth a try. Holiday breakfast time.
A savory dutch baby. What a great idea. Have to try this one – soon!!!

I usually prefer savoury, especially for breakfast and this looks like a great alternative to poached or scrambled eggs or French toast mum! xxx

That is certainly a new take on an old favorite! I’m trying this one!
I would like to have this for my dinner ….. something different!

This looks delicious Barbara. Oven pancakes are one of my favorite quick dishes but I wouldn’t have thought to turn it savory instead of sweet.
I have to try this one. I’ve seen so many dutch pancake recently, and they all look great, but this savory version is something really special. Great pick for SRC!

This looks like it would be a delicious breakfast at my house! I do like the idea about muffin tins…
I’ve never thought of doing a savory version – this sounds delicious!! Especially topped with gouda – yum!
I agree, this in muffin tins would be awesome!
i do prefer savory to sweet, this sounds so good!
I would love this for the dinner! Yummy!
If your daughter thinks it tastes like Yorkshire pudding, I know I would love this! What a wonderful, savory oven pancake.

I’ve had sweet Dutch babies a few times before, but I never thought to make a savoury version like this. The combo of bacon, green onion and Gouda looks amazing!
