Bauernfrühstück () (literally farmer's breakfast) is a warm German dish made from fried potatoes, eggs, cream onions, parsley, cheese, and bacon or ham. Despite its name, it is eaten not only for breakfast but also for lunch and dinner.

Typical preparation

It is similar to the somewhat simpler English bubble and squeak. The ingredients are mixed in a pan and fried as an omelette. It is usually accompanied by a green or tomato salad or gherkins, and rye bread.

Similar dishes

Similar dishes are found in other countries, too. In France, for example, as omelette à la paysanne (with sorrel), in Spain as a tortilla de patatas or in Sweden as pyttipanna.
