Farmer’s Brunch Omelet
By yasmine • May 17, 2015
Last time I was visiting Germany, I ate this amazing Bauernkartoffeleier – an omelet specialty of Bavaria, the southern region of Germany. It was such a wholesome meal, that I decided to duplicate at home since it seemed so easy and delicious for a Friday brunch or just a regular family breakfast or dinner. It can be tweaked with onions and tomatoes – but I decided to share the basic one I tasted and loved! As most German cooking, this omelet has bacon bits – so I replaced it with beef bacon or any salami you like. You can also replace the chive with minced parsley.
- 6 eggs - بيض
- 1/2 cup cooking cream - كريم الطهي
- 1 tablespoon water - ماء
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (grated) - جبنة بارميزان
- drop Tabasco (optional) - صوص تباسكو
- 1 tablespoon butter - زبدة
- 1 tablespoon olive oil - زيت زيتون
- 1 potatoes (peeled and thinly sliced) - بطاطس
- 50 gram salami (OR beef bacon OR turkey bacon - diced) - سالامي
- 2 tablespoon chives (chopped) - ورق بصل
- pinch black pepper - فلفل أسود
Step by step
- Melt the butter then add the olive oil into a large pan. Fry the potato slices on medium heat for 10 minutes or until one side is golden.
- In the meantime, mix the eggs with the cream, water, parmesan and Tabasco in a medium bowl. If you won’t use Parmesan, make sure you add a good pinch of salt.
- Add the bacon bits to the potato to fry for a minute and flip the potato slices so you can see the golden side. Make sure to spread the potatoes to one layer before you add the egg mix.
- Make sure the egg mix is spread all over the pan in a thin layer and the potato slices are well distributed in between.
- Add fresh pepper as it cooks then add the minced chives 2 minutes before you take it off the heat (it should take 10 minutes all in all).
- You can serve it once it is cooked or you can flip the omelet on the other side for a minute before doing so – the chives will get a bit of colour.
- Serve with the chives and golden potato side up to show off the beautiful color of the combination.
