Chef John's Bacon and Asparagus Dutch Baby

Rated as 4.42 out of 5 Stars

"I'm seeing lots of savory, non-breakfast versions of Dutch Babies on menus lately, so I thought I'd try it with this amazing bacon and asparagus version. The best pan to use is a 12-inch cast iron skillet."

OMG. Soooo good. Chef John never disappoints and this is no exception. I followed the recipe to a T and there is no need to make any adjustments. When I first read the recipe, I thought that...

This was great! The only change I made was to add some finely chopped green onions that I needed to use up, maybe a quarter cup. Those went in with the asparagus. Definitely will make it again....

Excellent! Delicious and easy; will be making often. I didn't change a thing (surprising for me).

This egg dish is amazing. The consistency is perfect. I even added an extra egg, changed to broccoli, added mushrooms and shallots. the basic egg mixture is perfect. Try it

I used peppers and sausage

Delicious. I was a little nervous since he recommends a 12" frying pan, and mine is only 10" and slopes in from that, but it all stayed in the pan! I might bake it a little longer next time. ...

This was pretty tasty. I left out the bacon so it would be vegetarian and found it plenty pleasing, anyway.

Just made this and it came out great. I had to improvise a little because I don't have an iron pan - so I just used a regular baking dish, put the asparagus & bacon mix in first and then poure...

VERY GOOD EASY I made with a corn salad and tomatoes for a Sunday lunch. I BBQ pancetta and asparagus then oven baked. Definitely want to remember to make again.
