Even my great-aunt who always made this omelette for me did not know why this dish is called Hoppel-Poppel in German. If you have potato and schnitzel leftovers, it's even faster but otherwise this dish is easily prepared. Serve it with gherkins and tomato slices. Also good for brunch.
My German regional cookbook, Spoonfuls of Germany, has many more German recipes and stories about German cuisine. Visit my blog for more information.
