Every Saturday morning my husband, when he is not deployed, makes these delicious breakfast potatoes.

They are basically his creation, but I did contribute the idea of using only organic red potatoes.


Let’s Do This


Breakfast Potatoes

First, cut up the organic red potatoes into quarters and put them in a glass container with a lid. Cut 1/2 of a good-sized onion and set aside.

Pour a bit of organic extra virgin olive oil to your skillet, I use a cast iron skillet, put the skillet in the oven, and heat the oven to 375˚ for 10 minutes.

Next, add olive oil to the potatoes (don’t saturate), 1 heaping tablespoon of garlic, about three shakes of cajun spice, and pepper to your liking.

Get a top for your container and shake vigorously like you were having a fit, not a seizure.

Take the pan out of oven and add the potatoes. Use a rubber spatula to scrap out all of the dripping olive oil and delicious garlic onto the potatoes.

You want to make sure to spread out the potatoes evenly. Add a couple more shakes of the cajun spice on top of the potatoes, and put the skillet into the oven for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, take the skillet out and gently, and I mean ever so gently, as Ellen would tell Scarlett O’Hara, “You must be more gentle, dear, more sedate,” *turn the potatoes. Think of these potatoes as Rhett Butler’s pride and ego. *Use the thinnest metal spatula that you can find and turn the potatoes over. Don’t take the delicious skin off! Keep the skins on the potatoes and the potatoes in tack.   We’re not making hash browns and this is NOT The Waffle House.

I put them back into the oven for 10 minutes.

Take them out and add the onion and green bell pepper — sort of folding them in gently, (REMEMBER RHETT BUTLER)  in the pan.  Bake for another 5-10 minutes. You’re looking for the onions to cook until a  translucent color and the tips of the potatoes to crisp.

We eat these with scrambled eggs, a slice of toast, a small glass of O.J., and some tea.

If you don’t want to cook these, stop on by Saturday around 10:00 a.m. and you can join us for breakfast.

I used to order breakfast potatoes when going out to eat, but it felt like I swallowed James Dean’s hair grease. They really don’t know how to make them. =/

    These potatoes sound delicious. I make a similar version, but there’s no garlic in mine. I love garlic. Thanks for sharing.

      Try putting garlic in the potatoes. Delicious!

      It also keeps the mosquitos away during the summer.
