We love having potatoes for breakfast. On Saturday we like to have a real breakfast...eggs, potatoes, bacon/ham, fresh garden salsa, coffee, orange juice and maybe something sweet(not always). I like making these potatoes first as it takes about 4o-45 minutes in the oven to bake. It gives me plenty of time to set up the table while they are baking as well as make the rest of the menu. I like to use these potatoes as well in egg burritos. These potatoes are versatile .... they do very well as a side dish for lunch or dinner.

"These were very good but I did overcook them because I think I cut them smaller so it didn't take 40 minutes. They are easy to make and very tasty. I added 1/2 teaspoon of chili flakes and they had a pretty good kick to them if you like that. I would take it down to 1/4 teaspoon for our family likes.

Are you making this? 
2 large russet potatoes; diced
2 tbsp olive oil; (up to 3 tbsp)
1 tsp dried dill or parsley
1 tsp paprika
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
tip: you can make them spicy if you like by adding
1 tsp chile flakes, or to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Preheat oven to 425 deg.

Peel and wash potatoes. Dice potatoes in small cubes (about 1/2 inch thick).

Place in a medium bowl. Add olive oil and toss to coat all potatoes. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss to mix.

Place potatoes in a single layer in a 13x9 pan. Use parchment paper for easy cleanup ...and so that the potatoes do not stick to the bottom of the pan.

Bake for 30 -40 minutes or until nicely golden brown. Enjoy!

"A variation on this recipe  Think of a great loaded baked potato flavor with the extra zing of ranch dressing and then roasted potatoes that are slightly crispy as opposed to fluffy and baked. These potatoes make a great side dish with most anything, and just perfect for a barbeque or pot luck dinner." Firebyrd Firebyrd

Awesome recipe! I've cooked these twice now. The first time was in foil on the BBQ. They were so perfectly done with a nice crunch. The spices were awesome! This time I'm doing them in foil in the oven. Very easy. Thanks for sharing

Great recipe! I added 1TB hidden valley ranch mix and skipped salt and pepper. Only took 20min at 400 in gas convection oven.

I liked the parmesan/dill combo. Wouldn't put a full teaspoon of red pepper flakes next time; if overpowered the other flavors. I used a silpat and I think it may have affected the texture some... Seemed slightly chewy, although I'm not taking the texture into consideration in my rating.

Save time. Boil red skin potatoes. Saute onion, red pepper , sun dried tomato , pepper, cayenne. Add sliced potatoes. Brown. Pour scrambled eggs over. Cook till eggs set. Sprinkle feta cheese. Serve with salsa.
