Breakfast Potatoes

Breakfast Potatoes
I have to say, this is one of our favorite recipes that we’ve tried in quite awhile. It seems kind of silly that something so easy can be a new favorite but they are just so good.

I have made them at least 4 times in the past couple months which is really saying something around here. A lot of times, we try a new recipe and then don’t have it again for months and months because I am always trying new recipes….but not this one. I seem to keep coming up with reasons to make breakfast for dinner (because fancy breakfasts don’t happen around here right now) just so we can have these potatoes.
Breakfast Potatoes
These potatoes are super simple to throw together and easily customizable to suit your own taste. I like to keep them simple with garlic, paprika, salt and pepper but you could spice them up to accompany any flavor profile. Wouldn’t chili powder and cumin spiced potatoes be good with a southwestern omelet? Or dill potatoes with a smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel? Just think of all the possibilities!

Breakfast Potatoes
recipe from Our Best Bites

4 medium baking potatoes
1 small white or yellow onion, minced
2 Tbsp. salted butter
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. garlic powder
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Kosher salt, to taste
About 10-20 shakes of Louisiana Hot Sauce

1. Bring a medium or large bot of water to a boil. While waiting for the water to boil, cut potatoes into 1/4″-1/2″ cubes. Add to the boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes or until they are slightly softened but not fully cooked. Drain and rinse in cool water.

2. Heat a large skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium heat. Add the butter and olive oil and heat until melted and bubbly. Add the diced onion and cook for about 1 minute or until the onions are softened. Add the potatoes in a single layer. Cook for 3-4 minutes (don’t even touch them) and then sprinkle with paprika, garlic powder, 10 dashes of Tabasco, salt and pepper. Using a spatula, scrape the bottom of the pan and flip as many potatoes as you can at once. You just want to handle the potatoes as little as possible so that you can get them super crispy.

3. When the potatoes have cooked for another 3-4 minutes, test them for doneness and seasoning; add more Tabasco, salt and pepper to taste. Cook until desired doneness is reached, flipping them the same way as before. It’s hard to overcook these potatoes, they should be a little crispy on the outside, but not burned. Serves 4-6.
