Savoury Kaiserschmarrn with chives and bacon

Serves 4

30 g cubed bacon
4 eggs
150 ml milk
150 g smooth plain wheat flour
1 bund chives
100 g grated mountain cheese
1 tbsp. butter
200 g sour cream
1 tsp. tarragon mustard
1 tbsp. lemon juice Salt
Black pepper

Preparation time:
25 minutes


1. Preheat oven to 200°C (upper/lower heat; 180°C for fan oven). Fry the bacon cubes in a wide ovenproof pan. Remove bacon cubes from the pan when crispy, but leave the fat in the pan.

2. Separate the eggs. Mix the egg yolks with milk, flour, 1⁄2 tsp. salt and a generous pinch of pepper to make a smooth batter. Chop the chives and fold into the batter, together with the grated cheese. Keep some of the chives for decoration.

3. Beat the egg whites stiffly with a pinch of salt. Then, fold the egg whites into the batter. Melt the butter in the pan containing the fat from the bacon cubes and then pour in the batter. Spread the bacon cubes over the batter and fry the mixture briefly.

4. Then place in the oven for ten minutes until it turns golden brown. While waiting, mix the sour cream with mustard, lemon juice and salt to taste. Finally, tear the mixture apart using two forks. Serve with sour cream and chopped chives.

Serve with: “Vogerlsalat” (lamb’s lettuce).
