Eye opening breakfast casserole from an old German favorite. Add a slice of toast and a fruit salad for a hearty start to a busy Saturday! Or how about brunch?

This was so easy, so fast and so delicious! I cut it down and made it just for one. I cooked it in a round pan on the stove and it came out perfectly. I did add only white cheese and some green onions on top! Thanks Debber for sharing your yummy recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large electric skillet on medium high, combine potatoes (enough to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/2-inch deep), onion and butter; saute until slightly browned. Spread evenly in pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk and seasonings. Pour over potato mixture in pan.
  3. Layer pepperoni over the top. Cover pan and cook on medium low for 10-15 minutes (eggs will be 'set'). {While that's cooking, prepare a simple fruit tray or salad.}.
  4. Remove lid and sprinkle cheeses over; put lid back on, but turn off the heat. Let stand 2-3 minutes. [If you're having toast with this, make it now.].
  5. Cut into wedges or squares and serve immediately.
  6. Option: Fry Italian bulk pork (or turkey) sausage, drain fat, add to potatoes. Toss in a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes. OR try other cheeses!
