Roasted Breakfast Potatoes with garlic and chili powder are a delicious way to wake up! Done in the oven in under 30 minutes, these potatoes are quick to prepare but pack a lot of delicious punch. Potatoes allow you to serve big crowds as well as fill up for the day and are everyone’s favorite morning side dish.
Potatoes are one of those side dishes that are complimentary to just about every meal of the day. They are delicious as a side to eggs or pancakes, fantastic as fries to a burger, and totally filling piled up with other vegetable favorites at night.
These easy roasted breakfast potatoes are no different – lightly spicy with chili powder, these easy breakfast potatoes can be prepped and popped in the oven to be served up to a crowd in 20 minutes.
Roasted Breakfast Potatoes
- Red Potatoes – you can use other kinds of potatoes, but I prefer red potatoes for this recipe
- Spices: Garlic Powder OR minced garlic, Salt, Chili Powder
- Optional: Cheese, Sour Cream, Salsa, Onions
What kind of potatoes do you use for Breakfast Potatoes?
For these roasted potatoes, I prefer red potatoes. They are smaller, easy to cut and cook fast.
But as long as you dice down your potatoes small enough to cook (but not too small to burn quickly) it really doesn’t overly matter. Its just a question of preference and what you have on hand.
Spicing up Roasted Potatoes
My kids really hate spices. I can get them to eat garlic, onion, and cumin.
You add chili powder, cayenne, or anything in the red seasoning family, they give me the side eye.
That being said, these potatoes have just the right amount of heat and are great for breakfast. If possible, try not to leave out the spice!
Oven Roasted Potatoes
Preheat your oven to 450.
Cut potatoes down to bite sized chunks. Do not dice them like you would a skillet but rather a size that would fit a fork.
Put potatoes in bowl, cover with oil and spices, and mix until all potatoes are smothered on all sides with spices and oil. I like to just use my hands for this process.
Dump on a prepared baking sheet and roast.
Don’t Burn the Potatoes!
Note about ovens: These potatoes are roasting up on high heat, so if you cut them too small it speeds up the cooking time and you will need to check and possibly remove them sooner. I made these at a friends and she has a gas stove, and they cooked super fast for us. While a little crispy, were still delicious, but I think watching 2 minutes earlier would have been perfect.

What do you serve Breakfast Potatoes with?
Potatoes in the morning are quite filling, so they go great with fluffy scrambled eggs or omelets, sirloin breakfast steak, or a sausage bowl. If you feel really brave, try them along side pancakes or waffles as the sweet of those both compliment the spicy of the potato.
I like to include a bit of sour cream, shredded cheese, and salsa or hot sauce with mine.
