Bakin’ With Bacon and the King


Hello Fans of Bacon!

Here at Castle Baconia we have our paw on the pulse of the world of bacon and try to share a recipe with you every week that has BACON in it!    This week I dug up another treasure from a cookbook THE ROYAL MOM had in her cabinet called “Virginia Cook Book”.    She says she got it on Skyline Drive in the gift shop YEARS ago.    I took a peek and found several interesting bacon recipes.  One of them I’m doing for you today!

I have to say that while the German word for this delightful breakfast is impossible for me to pronounce I know the recipe by a different name – a good old cheese, potato and veggie omelette.    Why did I mention German?   Because this recipe below is known as a German Farmer’s breakfast.    It’s rather popular – I found it ALLLLLL over the internet.

Bauernfrühstück (German Farmer’s Breakfast)

INGREDIENTS (recipe is for 6 servings)

8 slices bacon

1 small green bell pepper, diced

2 tbsp. finely chopped onion

3 large potatoes, boiled, peeled and cubed

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

6 eggs


In a skillet, fry the bacon until light brown and crisp.  Drain on paper towels; crumble when cool.  Drain off all but 3 tablespoons of the bacon drippings and add green pepper, onion, potatoes, salt and pepper.  Cook over medium heat until potatoes are golden brown, stirring frequently.  Sprinkle cheese over potatoes and stir.  Break eggs into pan over potatoes, stir in bacon and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until eggs are set.

Sounds yummy right?   I’m guessing some of you have had this before and maybe didn’t know the German name but loved the combination of ingredients.   We sure did!

See you next week for more BACON FUN.

Your King, Teddy

  1. HAHA, we do crunches too sometimes!!! That is SO funny, and we LOVE these bacon cartoons. Where on earth do you find them…oh, okay, maybe on mama’s favorite resource, Mr. G. Thank you for a good laugh. And German breakie….we’re using a sweet yellow pepper in place of green.


  2. Bow-urn-froo-stuck. I think that is the correct pronunciation, more or less…Sounds good and yummy and heart…like stick to your ribs kind of hearty!

    Our sons are coming over to help build the new shed…at last, its been in pieces on our front porch for a year, now…LOL! The slab was put in last October…the floor is done, now the walls and roof. We shall see how construction-wise our boys are. One seems to us to be a bit more practical than the other…LOL!


  3. I can already smell the aroma of this frying. I can do the prep and SSNS loves cooking up this very kind of breakfast food! We have grilled potatoes left over in the fridge. Well done Baking King Teddy! I just read six servings… pretty sure SSNS could hoover the whole thing!


  4. This reminds me of the skillet breakfast I sometimes get at our local breakfast restaurant. I also am proud of myself for being able to pronounce that word. Three years of German lessons have finally paid off. 🙂
