I don’t know about you but I like to switch up my breakfast routine and eat something scrumptious every now and then . And these breakfast potatoes always come in handy. I posted this recipe a while back with a different method, parboiling first. But, recently I have been making these without parboiling – Am always looking for new ways to speed up things in the kitchen.
Recipe have been updated with both methods. You try both and see which one works for you
All you need to do is cut your potatoes and bell peppers – if using any , season, toss in oil and throw them in the oven. And you are all set .
And the best part is that , you can indulge because they are much healthier than the deep-fried restaurant version, but just as delicious
The end result is a Crispy, potatoes that are – crunchy on the outside, with a tender and fluffy interior.
I might add they are very tasteful as a side dish; they just might be an all purpose side dish because they pair well with most protein.
You may use any potato you have on hand but I’d prefer either Russet or Yukon. If you’d like to keep the peels on the potatoes, make sure you scrub them very well – organic potatoes are preferable. Otherwise, just peel and cut the potatoes into cubes. For easy cutting, you may use this Vegetable Chopper (with 2 sizes of dicer blades) which cuts vegetables like potatoes, carrots and onions in no time and with less effort.
They do make a great breakfast paired with eggs like Omelets, Boiled eggs, Frittata and Tofu scrambles. OR if you are entertaining and you want to have your guests hug you, kiss you and never forget their stay, pair it with these Sausage and Peppers for the ultimate breakfast meal.
Why serve the same old boring stuff all the time!
