'Tis the Season for Breakfast - German Pancakes

This is a family tradition Chris grew up with - he remembers his dad making batches (yes plural) of these pancakes for his family.  Chris now makes them for our family - usually on New Years.  We occasionally make them for other occasions as well.  I love them with powdered sugar and syrup on them, but would be more than willing to slather some Nutella on them.
German Pancakes
6 large eggs
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
Powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.  Beat eggs with electric mixer; add flour and milk alternately, small amount at a time.  Add salt and sugar; beat until blended.  Pour enough batter in greased hot cast iron skillet; place in oven.  Bake until puffy, crispy and brown; batter will rise up on sides of skillet, making shell.  Spread butter on shell; sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Spread with jelly or powdered sugar.
