Out Of This World Breakfast Potatoes

These potatoes right here will be the best thing to happen to you all day.  So do yourself a favor and whip these suckers up for breakfast this week.  It's super easy and delicious.

     I've been away for a bit.  I haven't been too impressed with my photography lately and it's making me uninterested in blogging.

     So, back to the potatoes; What do you make when you buy a 20lb bag of potatoes on sale?  Start off with these breakfast potatoes.  More than likely you have all these ingredients on hand.  The great thing about this dish is you can make it your own; Don't like jalapenos - leave them out, replace the bacon with ham, you can even throw in some mushrooms. 

I use an cast iron skillet.  It really gives the potatoes a good char flavor.  Throw in your potatoes, seasoning, bell pepper and onion.  Let that cook for a good 10 minutes so the potatoes can brown.
Next, throw in your sliced bacon and jalapenos.  Want to know a trick to slicing bacon?  Put it in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes.  It will make the job much easier.  Let that cook for about 5 minutes.  That rendered bacon fat will give these taters lots of flavor!

Your in the home stretch!  Are you drooling cause I am!  Throw in the garlic, parsley and green onions or chives.  Stir for a couple minutes and top with cheddar.  Once the cheese is added, I store the potatoes in the oven while I fry up an egg.  This will keep the potatoes nice and hot.
Now that's what I call breakfast!  Eat and enjoy!

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 russet potato, diced
  • 2 slice bacon, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, red or green;chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • seasoning(salt, black pepper & red pepper)
  • 1 Tbsp each of chopped parsley and green onions

  1. Heat olive oil in 10" or 12" cast iron skillet.  Add potatoes, seasoning, onion and bell pepper.  Cook for 10 minutes or until the edges start to get crispy.  Med-High heat works for me.
  2. Add bacon and jalapeno to pot and cook for another 5 minutes.
  3. Lower heat and add garlic, parsley and green onions (chives work too).  Cook for another minute.  
  4. Turn off heat and add cheese.  Store in oven to keep warm while cooking eggs.  I like to adorn my potatoes with an over easy egg.
*serving size: 2-3 people
