Bauernfrühstück (farmer's breakfast) is a dish that my mother used to make when I was a kid - she was from Germany. I tried for years to repeat her yummy goodness, but until recently it was always a bit "off". I finally figured out how to replicate her method. Typically bacon is chopped and rendered, then onion and garlic are added. While those are cooking, potatoes are diced and put into the pan and allowed to brown while turning frequently. Meanwhile 6 eggs were lightly beaten. This time instead of bacon, I heated a bit of bacon fat that I keep stock frozen and added small cubed home smoked pastrami.
Once the meat, potatoes, onion, and garlic are crisped and brown, the heat is turned off and the beaten eggs are added and folded into the hot mixture until cooked. The result is real comfort food - creamy potatoes seasoned with the bacon, pastrami, onion and garlic. It was so good, my missus and I ate the whole pan which contained 8 potatoes! I'm going to need to go on a diet.
