Homestyle Breakfast Potatoes

Homestyle Breakfast Potatoes

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon butter (or margarine)
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 Tablespoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pepper - to taste
Wash potatoes and prick with a knife 4 or 5 times. Bake in the microwave on high 6 to 8 minutes until tender when poked with a fork. You can also use left over baked potatoes.

Place hot potatoes into ice cold water. Peel skins off, they should come off easily with your hands.

Chop potatoes into cubes. Heat butter and oil in a skillet. Mince or chop the onion. Fry onion in skillet until soft and browned. Add chopped potato and spices and fry until golden brown - stirring occasionally. Enjoy.

Breakfast potatoes for the working man. Nothing fancy - just potatoes, seasoning and a little onion. The great American breakfast side dish.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank owiesmum for this recipe.

Awesome! Loved it! Just one thing: you need to remove onions from skillet then add them again to warm them through after the potatoes are browned, otherwise they will burn. Also a dash of chilli powder and a teaspoon of butter makes them even more amazing. Thanks!

These were amazing! I had never made breakfast potatoes before, so I didn't really know what to expect. But I am so glad that this was the recipe I used, because it was simple and very good. Thank you for posting!
