Fried Breakfast Potatoes
I mean what’s not to love about potatoes!
These take about 25-30 minutes to make and are also a great idea for camping!
- 4-6 russet potatoes -I used 5 potatoes in this dish
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- fresh parsley, chopped (optional for serving)
- shredded cheese is also optional but awesome right before you serve
- cast iron pan
How to make Home Fries
Wash and scrub potatoes.
Slice potatoes into 1/2″ pieces and place into a skillet. If you cut the pieces too large, they will not cook in the this time period.
Also try to make sure the pieces are even so all potatoes finish at the same time. Otherwise some are mushy and some are too hard.
Add oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix well to evenly coat all sides of your prepared potatoes.
Heat up potatoes on medium, keeping skillet covered, and stirring frequently so potatoes don’t stick too much.
Let cook for about ten minutes.
Remove cover and continue to cook uncovered for an additional 10 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
Serve your breakfast potatoes along side eggs, toast, or a breakfast casserole!
Potatoes are basically the chameleon of side dishes and can be eaten for every meal quite easily.
