    1. In a saucepan with salted water cook potatoes until firm to the bite, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
    2. Meanwhile fry the bratwurst in a deep frying pan with some oil until browned from all sides. Take the bratwurst out of the pan and set aside. Place onions into the same pan and fry over medium heat until soft and lightly browned, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the pan and set aside.
    3. Add enough oil to the pan to cover the bottom of the pan and add the drained potatoes. Let them fry on one side for 5 minutes without stirring or moving them. When crisp and brown, turn them over carefully and fry again for 5 minutes without stirring. Repeat until the potatoes are crisp and brown on all sides.
    4. In a small bowl whisk together eggs, orange juice, 2 tablespoons parsley, 2 tablespoons chives, salt and pepper.
    5. When the potatoes are golden brown, place onions and bratwurst back into the pan and pour egg mixture evenly over the top.
    6. Turn down the heat, cover pan and cook until the eggs are set. Garnish with remaining parsley and chives and serve immediately.
