Chive and Parmesan Dutch Baby
Perfect for an impromptu breakfast, this puffed and golden savory pancake cooks up quickly and requires only a few simple ingredients you likely already have on hand. It’s delicious unadorned but fun served with smoked salmon, sliced avocado, and a simple side of greens dressed with olive oil and lemon juice—garnishes that quickly elevate this giant popover to fancy-brunch status.
½ cup whole milk
2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
