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's 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.
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.
