How to make

Ingredients

  • 3large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL)all-purpose flour or whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL)milk or plant-based milk alternative (such as almond, oat or soy milk)
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL)black pepper
  • Pinch (0.5 mL)salt
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL)butter
  • 4 slices PC® Old Fashion Style Peppercorn Bacon
  • 2large eggs, room temperature
  • 1shallot, thinly sliced (or 2 tbsp/30 mL minced white or red onion)
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL)extra-virgin olive oil, canola oil or safflower oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL)white or red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, cider vinegar, rice vinegar or fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp (5 mL)grainy or smooth Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp (5 mL)honey, pure maple syrup or granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL)black pepper
  • Pinch (0.5 mL)salt
  • 1head PC® Live Lettuce Trio or 1 small head green, red leaf or Boston lettuce, leaves separated and washed

How to make

  • Step 1Dutch Baby: Place 10 to 12 inch (25 to 30 cm) cast-iron skillet in oven. Preheat oven to 425ºF (220ºC).
  • Step 2Combine 3 eggs, the flour, milk, 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper and pinch (0.5 mL) salt in blender. Blend, stopping to scrape down side as needed, until batter is smooth. Carefully remove skillet from oven; add butter and swirl to melt and coat skillet. Pour in batter. Bake until puffed and browned, about 20 minutes.
  • Step 3Toppings: While Dutch Baby is baking, preheat barbecue to medium. Carefully place a sheet of PC Non-Stick Grill Sheet directly on grill. Arrange bacon in single layer on grill sheet. Place 2 whole eggs directly on grill beside grill sheet. Close lid; grill until bottoms of bacon are golden and crispy, 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Step 4Flip bacon and add shallot to grill sheet beside bacon; stir shallot to coat in bacon fat. Transfer eggs to small bowl (leave on grill for another 1 to 2 minutes for firmer yolks); set aside. Close lid; grill until bacon is golden and crispy and shallot is lightly caramelized, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Step 5Transfer bacon to paper towel-lined plate or wire cooling rack; set aside. Add shallots to separate small bowl. (Tip: The grill sheet is reusable! To remove it from the grill, carefully fold up using tongs and slide onto a baking sheet to cool before washing.)
  • Step 6Add oil, vinegar, mustard, honey, 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper and pinch (0.5 mL) salt to bowl with shallots. Stir to combine. Set vinaigrette aside.
  • Step 7Peel eggs; halve lengthwise. Top Dutch Baby with lettuce and drizzle with half of the vinaigrette. Top with bacon and eggs; drizzle with remaining vinaigrette. Using spatula, gently loosen edges of Dutch Baby from skillet. Slice into quarters and serve immediately.
  • Tip: Make sure your eggs are at room temperature before placing on the grill – the shells may crack if they go straight from the fridge to the grill.
