I'm not sure if this had garlic or not. I have never had garlic and
bacon together. 

I'm not sure it was even this NG.

It was something like fry the bacon, add onions, add boiled cubed?
potatoes. Then the poster said they used to add eggs to it sometimes. 

Can you help me? If not, I can figure this basic recipe out myself.

- without egg, it sounds like Country Fries

Add some crispy diced bacon (4-6 slices) to the following
recipe and substitute bacon fat for the butter:

Breakfast Potatoes

    * 4 cups potatoes, diced
    * 1 cup onions, diced
    * 4 tablespoons butter
    * paprika to taste
    * salt and pepper to taste 

Cook diced potatoes in boiling water for about 4 minutes.
Drain and mix with onions. Heat butter in a heavy skillet
and add potatoes and onions. Fry, bringing potatoes up from
bottom of pan with a spatula occasionally for even cooking.
Season to taste with paprika, salt and pepper.
Serves 4.

... or with egg - a breakfast frittata.

My method would be different and the ingredients would vary
slightly, but you'll get the idea from this.

This recipe was posted on rec.food.recipes by John Droge a few days
ago.  Is it what you are looking for?

My Mom and Dad's Bratkartoffel

My parents both grew up on farms in Germany near the North Sea. This is
how they made it on the farm

3-4 cups boiled potatoes, cold, peeled and sliced into about the size of
quarters
about 3-4 slices of bacon diced
about 1/2 cup diced yellow onions

Start frying the bacon
When you get some grease in the pan add onion
When bacon and onion start to get a little brown add potatoes
Continue till potatoes are browned lightly
My Mom would often add some beaten eggs at the end and that's what we
frequently had for lunch and sometimes for dinner.

John
