I love breakfast.  Probably my favorite meal of the day.  Mostly because it is the only meal where it is cool to eat bacon straight up.  But secondly, because it is almost always served with potatoes.  I love those crazy tubers.  So I decided to whip up some potatoes.  These potatoes are loaded with peppers and onions.  They are almost a breakfast on their own.

Breakfast Potatoes

Heck, top with an egg and you are good to go.

Breakfast Potatoes

  • 1 lb Russet potatoes
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tbs paprika
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Peel and wash the potatoes.  Place them into a pot of boiling water and partially cook them till fork tender.  10-15 minutes.  When cooked remove the potatoes from the boiling water and run them under cold water to stop the cooking.

While the potatoes are cooking dice the peppers and onions into bite sized pieces.

When the potatoes are cooled dice them up into bite sized pieces.

Dice the potatoes

Heat a large skillet to medium/high heat and add the vegetable oil.  Toss in the peppers and onions and cook for 5 minutes or until the onions and peppers soften.

Add the potatoes and the seasonings.

Add the potatoes

Cook until the potatoes are golden and crisp, roughly 10 minutes.

Cook till golden

Serve as a side to your favorite breakfast dishes.

  1. Didn't you mean to crumble bacon over that? 😉

    Looks great, perfect to go along with some chorizo and eggs.

    • It was missing some bacon. 🙁

      Good call Chris. Although Chorizo and eggs sounds mighty good to me.
