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!
this is how we make our breakfast skillet too but we have german in us lol dee red bell peppers are pretty in this also
When I was young, we called this "hopple popple" . My PA Deutch relatives made it.
Much as I'd like to have used regular bacon and cheddar cheese, I'm on a mission to keep my husband alive, so I chose turkey bacon and fat-free cheddar. Won't be doing the latter again - the resemblance to actual cheese was nil! The turkey bacon (Oscar Mayer) was quite nice in this dish and I imagine using real cheese will improve it substantially. Oh, I also removed half of the egg yolks. With all those changes, I hesitate to give this any star rating, but I'll do so if I get the chance to make it as written. Thanks for posting, BecR!
I personally didn't try this but hubby said it was very good. I have made something similar many times since I've been married but don't think I have ever made it using the cooked potatoes. Thanks for posting!!
I'll never use frozen potatoes again in a skillet egg recipe. The raw ones hold their shape nicely as they cook! Note to self, fry potatoes in batches to brown and then saute peppers/onions. Another great recipe BecR. Thank you. Made for More Than Sauerkraut And Dumplings 2012
I happened to have really good, thick bacon which turned out tasting almost like "Speck Wuerfel". I used less bacon than stated and kept less of the fat b/c I'm counting WW points. Still, it turned out wonderful - both DH and I loooovvved it! Lecker! Thanks, Becky!
Really delicious and filling breakfast. We scaled the recipe back for two and it was great! Thanks for the post. Made for the Octoberfest-Diabetic Form, October, 2011.
