“This makes a hearty and delicious breakfast. I call it a German omelet. You may substitute ham for the bacon. Feel free to add kale or beet greens or well-drained diced tomatoes to lighten it up a bit.”

Directions

  1. Parboil the potatoes by first bringing a pot of of salted water to boil. Carefully drop the potatoes into the pot. Broil briskly, uncovered, until the potatoes are slightly resistant to piercing with a sharp knife. Be careful not to overcook the potatoes or they will be mushy in the final product.
  2. In a 12-inch skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. With a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain. Add the onions and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until they are soft and translucent. Turn off the heat and set the skillet aside.
  3. Drain the potatoes, cool to the touch, then dice them (about 1/2 inch square). Add them to the onions in the skillet and cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, occasionally turning the potatoes with a spatula.
  4. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, milk, pasley, salt, and pepper with a fork until well mixed. Crumble the bacon and add it to the potatoes. Pour in the eggs. Reduce heat to low and cook undisturbed for 5-6 minutes or until the eggs are set, but slightly moist.
  5. To serve, invert onto a plate. Serve immediately.
