    BecR's Note:

    Great hearty rib-sticking meal for breakfast, lunch or supper! Very popular in my household. This is a versatile one-pan recipe-- you can sub or add ingredients as desired-- try ham, mushrooms, tomatoes, or chives. (Note: For an equally delicious simplified version of Bauernfruhstuck using frozen Potatoes O'Brien, please see my Easy Bauernfruhstuck (German Farmer's Breakfast Skillet)). Delicious! P.S. Any leftovers you have make a wonderful breakfast the next day--reheat a few seconds in the microwave (although I've been known to eat this cold), and serve with toast or stuff into a flour tortilla for a quick breakfast on-the-go.

      My DH loved this! Reminded us of cold October mornings in Munich. The only things I changed was to use olive oil instead of bacon fat and black forest ham instead of bacon. Served it with hearty black rye bread with jam. Delicious!

      Delicious!! I cut the red potatoes into slices--extra thin and browned in the bacon drippings, then layered in the other ingredients (adding slice mushrooms. EXCELLENT dinner with Pillsbury Grands for the Breakfast Anytime Event in Cooking Photos!

      What a great recipe! I used leftover baked potatoes.. no green peppers.. half the bacon.. and added some ham and green onion because I needed to use them up. It made an excellent dinner!
