Speckeier are scrambled eggs with bacon. It’s a perfect dish for Vesper – German snack time in-between main meals (Zwischenmahlzeit).
A Zwischenmahlzeit is also referred to as Brotzeit, Vesper or Zweites Frühstück for adults. After all, snacks aren’t just for children! The English word “snack” is also used, as is Imbiss, although these refer more to actual meals that may replace main meals. However, the Zwischenmahlzeit is meant to be eaten in addition to the main meal to fill one up during work hours.
