How to Make Scrambled Winter Breakfast (Hoppelpoppel)

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat.

    Add potatoes and cook, turning occasionally with a spatula, until lightly browned (should take about 5 minutes).

    Reduce heat to medium-low and scatter the meat, onion, and green pepper over potatoes. Cook for about 1 minute longer.

    In a bowl:
    Beat the eggs, water, Tabasco, pepper and dill weed until blended.

    Pour egg mixture over potato mixture in skillet. When edges begin to set, lift the spatula to let uncooked egg flow underneath. Repeat until eggs are done to your preference.

    Season to taste with salt.

    Top with sour cream or sprinkle about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese over
    top and let melt over egg mixture.

    Serve with your favorite blend of coffee or hot tea and orange juice and buttered toast on the side: wheat, rye, or pumpernickel.
