“I know most people know Dutch Babies as a sweet breakfast food- but not in my family! Sausage and cheese make this breakfast classic more hearty.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 12 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 18 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 cup cheese, shredded (use a good melting type like cheddar or Jack)
  • 1 cup cooked sausage (you can use crumbly sausage or even better, smoked sausage cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Put margarine and sausage into the baking dish and place in the oven to heat about 5 minutes before you add the batter. Keep a close eye on it because it will burn if you let it.
  3. Blend eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a blender or with a mixer. Add the flour 1/4c at a time until just incorporated evenly (don't overmix otherwise you'll activate the gluten in the flour and have a thick dutch baby rather than a fluffy one).
  4. Add batter immediately after it's ready to hot baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle cheese over the batter and bake for 20-25 minutes, until puffy and Golden brown.
  6. Let it cool a few minutes before cutting- it will deflate during this period.
  7. Enjoy!
  8. Note: this is my family recipe, and it was is told to me as a ratio- 1/4 milk & flour for every egg- feel free to go up or down a size on your baking dish just adjusting according to the ratio!
