This German cheese omelette recipe makes a great weekend breakfast, a super brunch, or even a light supper.

This is among one of my favorite German breakfast recipes and very traditional.

It is called Käseomelette nach Bäuerinnenart in German and literally translated as Farmer's Wife Cheese Omelet.

Planning on this for breakfast, I will always cook extra potatoes for dinner the night before.

Check out how to boil potatoes if you need help in doing so. You could just as quickly cook some potatoes in the microwave in the morning, just to make this omelet.

Served with a salad and some fresh bread, this makes a delicious light supper as well. A similar dish to this is called Hoppel Poppel. It's a dish from Berlin that uses leftovers. It's one my Mutti often served us for lunch. Check it out below.

German Cheese Omelette Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 2 potatoes, cooked, diced
  • 1 Tbsp onion, chopped
  • ¼ lb mushrooms, fresh or canned
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup cheese, grated (see hints below)
  • salt
Instructions:
  • Fry bacon in saucepan.
  • Add butter and potatoes, onions, and sliced mushrooms. If using canned mushrooms, drain well.
  • Saute over medium-high heat for 2 - 3 minutes.
  • In small bowl, beat eggs, cheese, and salt. Pour over potato mixture in pan.
  • Reduce heat and cook until set. Serve immediately.
  • Makes 3 - 4 servings.
Hints:
  • Use Emmentaler or Cheddar cheese, or your favorite
  • Instead of using bacon, add about 4 Tbsp of real bacon bits. You may need to use extra butter.
  • Instead of using onion, add about 1 tsp dried chopped onion.
  • When beating the eggs, cheese, and salt, try to beat in as much air as possible.
  • If you wish, you can omit the potatoes and/or mushrooms.

In actuality, this is a great way to use up leftover potatoes. Finding them in the fridge is always a great reason to throw together this dish.

Got Leftovers? You could also make this ...

Here's a version of the above omelette, called Hoppel Poppel, that uses leftovers. In fact, in planning on making this, I'll purposely cook in order to have leftovers, just for this.

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
