In the summertime so many fresh vegetables are in season, especially tomatoes and fresh basil. I enjoy a great caprese salad or appetizer on a hot day. I make a killer dutch baby pancake. They are actually one of my most favorite things to make in a cast iron skillet. I combined the best of both worlds, a light, savory dutch baby pancake infused with sautéed shallot, garlic and Italian seasoning. It’s topped with fresh mozzarella, basil and a balsamic vinegar reduction. Dutch babies are made with mostly egg and little flour so its not so carb heavy and amazingly delicious. Perfect for a summer day.
