Pear And Smoked Gouda Dutch Baby

Pear And Smoked Gouda Dutch Baby


  • 8 tablespoons butter (preferably unsalted, but salted also works), divided
  • 1 medium leek, washed and sliced thinly (just the white and very beginning of the light green portion)
  • 2 medium pears, ripe but still firm, peeled, cored, and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 3/4 cups grated smoked gouda cheese (smoked mozarella will also work if that's all you can find)
  • 1-2 tablespoon chopped fresh chives, to garnish (optional)
