Apple Bacon Dutch Baby Recipe #nomnom
This morning(while devouring the classic apple version of the "dutch baby") I had a devilishly delicious idea spawn from the corners of my mind. Add BACON. Yes! I should add bacon to the classic apple dutch baby recipe! I started thinking about how I would compose this dish and I knew this recipe was something monumental that must be shared. The recipe is a piece of cake...or in this case a piece of bacon(waahh, waahhh, waahhhhh). To make this savory-sweet version of the apple dutch baby, simply start as you normally would and grab that cast iron skillet!

Take your bacon and cut it into tiny pieces. Place your bacon in your cast iron skillet at 400 degrees. Bake until rendered and crispy(about 10 minutes). Drain the bacon grease. Add your thinly sliced apples, brown sugar, butter, and spices(cinnamon and nutmeg). Mix together and let apples caramelize for about 10 minutes. While your apples are caramelizing, make your batter.

Mix your dry ingredients together. I would leave out any additional salt, because of the bacon and butter. Slowly add your milk and mix thoroughly until combined. Add your eggs one at a time until completely combined. Then, add your vanilla extract and additional spices. Pour your batter into your hot cast iron skillet and bring the oven temperature down to 375. 375 degrees will give you a fluffier dutch baby. If you bake at 400 degrees you will get a thinner and crispier dutch baby. The world is your oyster! Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve hot with a dusting of powdered sugar and/or syrup! Enjoy bacon lovers!
