Bauernfrühstück (German Farmer’s Breakfast)#SundayFunday

Bauernfrühstück is a German country breakfast. A Farmer's breakfast which simple & filling dish made from fried potatoes, eggs, onions and bacon or ham, pan fried as an omelette. . The Berlin version of the same is called “Hoppel Poppel”. This can be had for lunch or dinner!
I made a vegetarian version to for my hubby, with an addition of cottage cheese and minus the ham rest ingredients and method the same.

Serves One

2 Medium Potatoes - skinned & sliced in roundels
2 - 3 Tablespoons Duck Fat /Bacon Fat or Olive Oil

Slice the potatoes in roundels and boil the potatoes in a saucepan of lightly salted water till just cooked. Drain, rinse with cold water to cool and set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add the onions and sauté till they are golden brown. Then add the potato roundels and sauté till they too start to brown, 
now add in the ham and sauté for a minute 
then add the bell peppers, celery, chives and spring onions and sauté for 2 minutes or till they soften a little.
