Breakfast Potatoes just take a breakfast or brunch menu to the next level, in my humble opinion.

And luckily, these breakfast potatoes couldn’t be simpler to make. Chop everything up, toss it into a skillet, cook it until it is ready, and then gobble them up.

Sounds simple enough, right?

That’s about all there is to it. Promise.

And if you really want to make things simple as can be, just chop all of the veggies the night before and leave the skins on your potatoes like I do.

I get tickled every time I serve them to company at the comments about how much they love the potatoes with the skins on still on them. For a few minutes I act like it makes them more gourmet or something. Then, I can’t stand it anymore and I admit to my laziness.

  1. What do you think if a person put a scrambled egg mixture in half way through the cooking time and wa la you have a complete breakfast?? Maybe add some crumbled bacon?? Would like to hear your thoughts on that. Looks great as usual. Keep them coming. 🙂

    1. I have always fixed this and after potatoes are cooked through scramble several eggs and pour on top with chopped ham — stirring to set the eggs.

  2. We make something similar and call them potatoes…my grabdma made them, so did mom, then me and now my daughter and granddaughter. We throw in anything extra we have on hand, but the basics are chopped potatoes, butter/olive oil, then shredded cheese on top when all is cooked and sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika. For dinner we add some meat…link sausages, hamburger, kielbasa, ham. Love em anyway!

  3. These look fantastic! I always had such bad luck with my breakfast potatoes. They just never turned out just right. I’m thinking it was the potatoes that I chose, I love that you used yukon golds. I’m going to try that!

  4. They look yummy! Do you cubed the potatoes in small diced cubes? Just checking before I tackled this easy recipe which I love!!! Keep them coming.

    1. Hi Michele,
      I’d say these are between a small and medium dice. They are small enough to cook quickly and large enough not to turn to mush when cooked. 🙂
