What a simple yet delicious idea. I made it with hasbrowns & toast for a "breakfast dinner" and it hit the spot!

I make this all the time..never even gave it a thought as a recipe. In Germany, Bavaria, and the German towns thruout Europe this dish is extremely popular in the morning (or sometimes we even made it for a Sunday evening meal) with homemade crusty bread. I love this for breakfast much better than bacon.Yummy!
