  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.

  • Combine eggs, milk, flour, 1 tablespoon butter, salt, and pepper in a blender; blend until batter is smooth and thin, about 2 minutes.

  • Carefully remove cast iron skillet from oven using an oven mitt and pour remaining 1 tablespoon butter into the skillet, quickly and carefully swirling to coat the skillet with butter. Pour batter into the skillet and transfer to the oven.

  • Bake in the oven until puffed around the edges and cooked through, 18 to 20 minutes.

  • Top Dutch baby with Cheddar cheese, chives, fresh thyme, and crumbled sausage. Return to the oven and bake until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Slice and serve Dutch baby immediately.

I've made a ton of Dutch Babies in the past and this is by far my favorite. I did have to substitute dry chives but it certainly didn't change the integrity of the dish. So versitle.

Quick and easy. Good flavor. The only thing was when adding cheese it deflated.

I always love discovering a new way to do eggs and this recipe is just that! Easier to make than I thought. Delicious and so incredibly versatile. If you are time-concerned change the order and whip and bake the eggs first and then cook the sausage. Not that big of a difference but slightly more efficiant.

This was excellent! I expected it to be harder than what it was. I'm looking forward to trying different combinations inside the crust. Should work for sweet or savory.

I used bacon. I didn't have milk so I made it with krustees pancake mix. I only had dry thyme and chives so I added them to the mix. Also too lazy to locate blender and I mixed batter with a spoon instead. It turned out nice and we ate it for breakfast.

this will become a breakfast go to. I made with the cheese I had on hand Swiss. And bacon yummy. Used my vintage # 9 pan. The batter came out light and eggy. I think I ll do it again and top with just powdered sugar. Skip the savory

Yes I had to buy a cast iron skillet to prepare the herb-sausage-and-cheese-dutch-baby. Filled the recipe and came our with a winning breakfast. Came out great.
