    BecR's Note:

    Here's a quick and simplified version of my Hearty German Farmer's Breakfast - Bauernfruhstuck Hearty German Farmer's Breakfast (Bauernfruhstuck), and just as delicious! Uses pre-cut frozen potatoes (I use the Ore Ida brand Potatoes O'Brien), onions, bell peppers, and precooked sausage, ham or bacon. Leftovers (if any) are awesome, and may be eaten either warm or cold. Makes a great breakfast wrap, too. Serve with some fresh fruit and your favorite beverage for a delicious breakfast, lunch or supper.

      This breakfast will start anyone's morning out on the right foot. I may try dicing raw potatoes next time, just so they don't break down so much as they cook. This is one delicious meal. Made for - More Than Sauerkraut And Dumplings 2012
