Every month I look forward to the Southern Living Magazine. The recipes are always beautiful and approachable.

This past month, I was smitten with a bacon cheddar dutch baby, a wonderful savory take on one of my favorite breakfast dishes. As soon as I saw it, I knew I need to make a keto bacon cheddar dutch baby,  because I couldn’t get it off my mind.

I have a very solid keto dutch baby recipe here that I usually take in a sweet direction.

What is a dutch baby?

A dutch baby is a big German pancake that is baked in a skillet. As it bakes, it puffs up. The grain free version doesn’t puff up as much as an original version, but it still is just amazing.

Originally, I made five versions of a keto friendly dutch baby until I felt like I hit gold. There is nothing better than having a wonderful “base” recipe that offers a world of possibilities. Dutch babies can go sweet or savory and just because you live a low-carb life style, are gluten free or grain free, that doesn’t mean you can enjoy big fat food.

In the past, I’ve made an apple dutch baby here and a sausage dutch baby here with all purpose flour, but they could easily be adapted with grain free flours. The possibilities for a dutch baby are endless and can be a quick supper as well as a lovely brunch.

Almond Flour and Coconut Flour Make a Delicious Keto Bacon Cheddar Dutch Baby

I used two grain-free flours in this grain-free dutch baby recipe, almond flour and coconut flour to get the taste I was looking for. I have become very adept at making almond flour recipes, especially since I opened a keto home bakery. 

This is such an easy recipe to do because you don’t need any special equipment, except a pan that goes into the oven. I love my Lodge cast iron pan.

Keeping this easy, the bacon is oven-baked in a 400 degree F. oven, which warms the oven up. I always start the bacon in a cold oven and bake for 20 minutes.  I used a rather sharp cheddar but you could use any kind of cheddar cheese you like.

Keto Cheddar Bacon Dutch Baby can be reheated

Here’s some good news. I was only able to eat half of this and saved it for the next day. It was just as good reheated.

I also had this thought…the savory cheese and bacon would taste so good with a little of this sugar free strawberry sauce. That may sound strange to you, but I have always liked jam on my egg toast.

Keto Bacon Cheddar Dutch Baby, Grain Free

If you want a sweeter version, try this grain free dutch baby served with fruit, but go ahead give savory a try.

    1. Gigi, that’s a great question. I’ve discovered you can use a medium or larger cast iron. The larger one is thinner and I”m tending to like that more. I think it’s a 12 inch, but a ten inch works find too.
