Hearty German Farmer's Breakfast (Bauernfruhstuck)

Hearty German Farmer's Breakfast (Bauernfruhstuck) created by Linky

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 recipe #278230). 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.

    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
