In Germany, this simple dish is served at breakfast , lunch or dinner. It's also called 'Farmer's Omelet.' Serve with a dill pickle or a nice salad as a side. My kids prefer ketchup with the meal.

  • Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the bacon strips in the butter until browned, 5 to 7 minutes; remove bacon and set aside. Add the potatoes to the bacon fat and cook over medium-high heat until browned, about 5 minutes.

  • Beat the eggs with the salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, and mix with the potatoes and bacon; allow to cook until eggs are set, 3 to 5 minutes, turning once.

This was very good! I did add more ingredients for a more flavorful omelet. I used chopped turkey bacon and leftover red skinned potatoes. I added dried italian herb seasonings and a small amount of fresh shredded cheddar cheese. Tasted great. Read More

This receipe is good as is. The great thing about this basic receipe is you can add anything you want and it is good! Very versatile. We have added jalapeno jack cheese for extra kick. Read More

I made this for a quick dinner after work last night. We like having breakfast for dinner. This was good and hearty sort of comfort food. I doubled the recipe since my husband is a big eater. We finished it all! Read More

This was very good however it seemed like something was missing. Next time I will add some green pepper and onion too for flavor. Maybe a handful of shredded cheddar would make this even better. Ketchup was good with this. I had trouble flipping mine over it sort of fell apart but tasted fine. Read More

Thank you - very nice change from most breakfasts. After cooking 4 pieces of extra thick bacon sautéed 1/3 cup of chopped onions 1/4 cup of chopped red bell pepper and 1 tablespoon of finely chopped hot peppers in the bacon grease. While the potatoes cooked beat eggs vegetables 1 tablespoon of sour cream and 1 tablespoon of cream together. Served with sliced tomatoes. Next time would use less potato or more eggs. Read More
