4 servings


  • 7 large eggs, divided

  • cup whole milk

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup whole-wheat pastry flour

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 2 ½ cups baby arugula

  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, shaved


  1. Place a 10-inch cast-iron skillet in the oven; preheat to 425 degrees F.

  2. Combine 3 eggs, milk, all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a blender; blend until frothy, about 1 minute.

  3. Carefully remove the pan from the oven, add butter and swirl the pan until the butter is melted. Immediately add the batter. Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 20 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the remaining 4 eggs and cook sunny-side up until the whites are just set, about 2 minutes.

  5. Whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Add arugula and toss to coat.

  6. Serve the Dutch baby topped with the fried eggs, arugula, Parmesan and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
